This was my first build that I properly attempted. Had a great time getting all of it put together, I feel like the choice I made in terms of parts was good simply because I don't do a whole lot with my computer. I was an inch close to buying an i7 but dropped out at the very last second.
A note as well, I'm actually reusing my GPU from my previous build. I'll be replacing it soon with the next series of AMD GPUs. It's a temporary thing.
Overall, this PC has been a pleasure to use as well. It's more than enough for everything I want to do, which is great :) The main reason I went with this over the AMD counterparts on offer was the presence of PCI-express 3.0. The GEN3 sabertooth is not for sale as far as I know in Australia.
You may be questioning my decision to get a ROG board, and I'm justifying it because I'm starting to get into lan parties (this is where the scout 2's handle comes in handy!), and I've always been an avid PC gamer. The only reason I avoided PC games earlier was because I had a PC that couldn't handle them! I wanted to go all out, without breaking my wallet in half :-P
I know the build can do with some improvements in certain areas, such as an aftermarket cooler. I will in fact be overclocking, but I'd like to do my research on this first coming from the Phenom II world.
Hope you like it, and I hope my cable management wasn't too shabby. I've definitely seen better, though.
PS. Apologies for my shady looking room lighting. I've been waiting to get my lights fixed, so it's a bit dim in my room!
