EDIT6 I just got some new white keycaps for my keyboard to finally tie the whole rig together. Really loving the contrast on them! EDIT5 I decided to go with a clear plastic front for the "eyes" on the case. The red LEDs I got are not high intensity so they glow just the right amount during the night and just a little bit during the day. Love the cleaner look without the blue. I also have replaced the LED in my Deathadder now to white and I turned off the one on the wheel. Love that look too. I have turned off the green LED strip that I had originally installed in the machine. I may someday replace it with red or white. EDIT4 Just made a small modification. Ever since I bought the In Win case (That I LOVE BTW) there was one thing that just bugged me. The front HD LEDs and the Power Button LED were all a super bright blue. I just replaced them all with some great looking red LEDs. Until it get's darker in here I am not sure how well it looks. I removed one of the front "frosted plastic" "eyes" where the HD LEDs are located so I can see with and without at the same time. If it looks good without, I will replace the plastic with clear or semi-dark plastic to cover the holes instead of the blue they used. I will more than likely go this route, but I want to see how it looks before I commit. But I do gotta say that now the power button looks much more rocking and with the Guild Wars 2 theme I've been after. I still have a few other lines and things in the case that I would like to eventually get rid of and I would LOVE to get some new braided power lines inside, but for now the straight black actually looks really good.
EDIT3 Just upgraded to windows 10, this things now SCREAMS with newest DX12
EDIT2 I have gotten a new processor to the 8350 and now I have a new PSU.
EDIT The monitor has arrived and I have added the photos. My Nokia 1520 is broken currently but once I get my screen delivered and I fix it, I will use it to take much better photos deserving of the rig. I can tell you the pictures aren't doing it justice. It is truly glorious!
I reused my EVO, motherboard, Ballistix RAM, Naga, and PSU from my first build, everything else was purchased new in the last few weeks. I haven't benchmarked yet but I will soon. Once I get time I will put the prices, but will take digging out emails and login's for websites.
I love GW2, and I just recently purchased Watch_Dogs and now that the rig is done, I will start looking into other games. I have steam with quite a few games on it and once I get my hard drives rearranged and settled I will start to redownload my collection.
I have edited prices as much as I could. I had a previous mobo and crossfired 7790s and the mobo fried. I traded one of the 7790s off on /r/hardwareswap for the gigabye mobo I have now so no real price could be assessed. Bought the Naga at walmart awhile back, I'm sure the price has come down since I bought it. The speakers I got from my mother for christmas.
