Hey guys and girls, welcome to my first build ever! After months of part research and debates I went with the list seen below. I apologize beforehand for the bad quality pics.
I have to say I am extremely lucky as all my parts came in full working order, and the build went flawless! Hopefully this luck continues and this computer lasts me a long time. (knock on wood)
My goal for this computer was to play games on extreme settings, but also to be able to handle some work related programs such as ArcGIS 10 and Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop to name a few.
I haven't done any performance testing yet, as I just finished this two days ago and with work and everything it's been kind of hectic. But there will be some stats soon. I will also post some more pics when I have time.
I went with this case because I read some reviews that it had great cooling features, and because I really love LED lights. Tron was one of my favorite movies VISUALLY and I wanted to theme my case around that kind of idea. I plan on getting a new keyboard and mouse in the future but for now I just used my old set up from my previous computer which was a hand me down DELL.
Feel free to leave some constructive feedback in regards to cable management or optimizations or case mods! As I said before this was my first build and cable management is new to me. Any suggestions to better manage my cables would be excellent.
Thanks for stopping by!
