Description

An all around machine used for gaming, photo editing, and video editing. Everything works great together, and I'm planing on more upgrades in the future.

Sexy case! but i would have changed your fan for two CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO but a nice piece of equipment

Yeah, that fan is one of the most reliable on the market and a great value, but I wanted to give the newer Enermax a try. As for the case, thanks! I love the look as well. Too bad I overpaid a TON for it. Stupid local PC components store.

Why didn't you order the case?

Honestly, it was just impatience. Because this was my first build, I had little knowledge on what cases should cost at the time (about a year ago). I had all of my components and I didn't feel like waiting on a case, so I bought locally. Probably the biggest regret I have about this build thus far.

Why the 6670?

The 6670 is from a donor computer to keep the initial cost of the build within my budget. Upgrading to a GTX 770 in the near future.

Any internal pictures?

How's the Thermaltake Commander in terms of cable management? Its popularity has certainly increased lately.

I'll have some internal pictures up in a little while. The Commander keeps most of my cables pretty tidy, but it is a bit of mess inside right now as I'm using a temporary back-up PSU until my Solidgear gets back from being RMA'd.

I hate to be that guy but, if I were you, I would buy a new, more reliable PSU rather than use that Solidgear when you get it back.

Don't worry about being that guy haha. That's actually what I intend on doing, because this is the second time it quit working in a two month period. I'll probably just resell the new SG unit I get back and upgrade to a NZXT or Corsair.

Jeez.. You're lucky it didn't kill your system either of the times that it died.

Technically, only one of the failures resulted in a hard shutdown. The first time was just a fan bearing failure. Nevertheless, I was pretty pissed that I had to go through all the RMA and Installation/Removal troubles twice.

I think you could have gone with a better build for the same price.

Keeping in mind that the 500gb HDD and the 6670 are from a donor computer and are going to be replaced eventually, what would you suggest I should have done differently.

Also I think the monitors were a bit expensive, but you probably got that from a Donor too. You should change the purchase price before more people get confused. Have a great day, sir, and thank you for being open to constructive criticism.

Yeah, you're right. I forgot to change the 27" to the price I actually paid lol. And you're on the money with the 770, because that's actually one of the cards I'm looking at buying. I would totally go for the Liquid CPU Cooler instead of the fan I have, but my case was too small to fit any Liquid radiator setup in it :/ Oh well

It's still a pretty decent build, but you overpaid imo.

Probably did, I was a complete newbie at the time.
