Description

My first build from scratch!

Wanted a good gaming PC inside a decent case (my old PC was housed in a really bad mATX case) Everything went together beautifully, I would highly recommend the 300R case.

Building a PC was on my bucket list so I am glad that I finally crossed something off it!

The SSD is for the OS, while the HDD is for storage. Noctua CPU fan was from my old build and is a great cooler, will update the temps when I get on my PC next.

(note, I actually have a 2TB HDD, I couldn't find the right one in the list. The 1TB one is closest)

Oh and my win 8.1 is a full version, not an OEM version. Tried installing my OEM Windows 7 onto this build but it wouldn't activate. Had to rush out and buy a new OS!

Thanks! I put in the prices for the parts I bought, the rest came from my old PC, and the fan and PSU I bought a year or so ago and can't remember the prices

Here is my opinion on it:

1.WHy not an 8320? Not a bad choice but could have gone a bit cheaper and tried to get a 280X by saving on others

  1. Did you buy the memory seperate?

3.Tad slow memory?

  1. Why unhappy with the HDD?

I like it overall, I would have gotten some different things but everyone has a choice. I wish yo saved up to a 280X but this is also a great card

Price! The GPU in this build was second hand from ebay at £82, which I couldnt pass up. its fine for me right now. can always upgrade it at a (much) later date

Why not go with 4-way SLId Titan Zs?

Ok, someone got upset at my comment. It was a joke. LOL

Since the titan z is a dual card, you can only do Two way sli with them, assuming your motherboard supports four way sli with normal video cards

HE WAS JOKING! The reason the dude didn't get a 780 is because it is in a totally different price bracket. Norm was joking because titan Zs are also (obviously) way more expensive than a 270, so he was making fun of you.

I realize he was being sarcastic, my only comeback was to play along.
