Description

I built this machine back around Thanksgiving and have been lazy about getting it uploaded. Today its raining cats and dogs outside so I thought why not put up my computer build. On a side note I thought that black friday was a let down on PC parts as I only found the Seagate for a good price. This computer is used to play Battlefield 4 and edit videos. Overall I have very been pleased with this computer. Looking back I wish I put in a bigger SSD and time will tell if I made the right call on the power supply but so far so good. I got a heck of a deal on the ram at amazon. I am pretty sure it was a miss publish because I went back to buy more and it was off their website. The good deal on the sabertooth was an open box from CedarPC. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate on this computer. I can't make up my mind whether or not i like Windows 8. I hope you enjoyed my build. Feel free to give me your opinion about the build and what you think I should have done to make it better. Till next time fellow computer friends :)

I've never heard of that PSU, but some of the most recent reviews I'm seeing on New Egg would make me extremely nervous. Even though the box says 850W, you probably don't want to get very close to that. Everything else looks pretty nice though.

I realize I am replying to this 6 months later, so sorry about that.

I've owned this PSU for almost 5 years now, and it has been fantastic. It's done Xfired and SLI'd cards, and has dealt with power consumption at 812w max, and has worked fine. I don't know why the reviews are bad, but in my experience, it has been great.

Excellent! Perhaps it's a quality control thing. Maybe a few bad ones slipped through quality control and that's what the bad reviews are from. Since you've had yours for 5 years though, that's a pretty good test.

Ditto on that PSU.
