This started with a $150 processor I bought from my buddy. I had a budget of around $1000 so I tried to keep it within limits. I also had a copy of win 7 oem 64 bit on hand that I didn't have to purchase. Only trouble I had while building it was the cable management. As you can see, I don't think I did a pretty good job with it especially in the back. I did what I could with the length of cables provided. Semi-Modular power supply helped and was nice to have. I wish the 200R had some rubberized holes for the cables but I guess I get what I pay for, I thought the edges were well rounded anyway.
It runs MS Flight Simulator X really well and I am pleased with the performance. I don't have a lot of experience doing OC so I just used whatever Asus provided with their software pack. I just took whatever it said my clock rate was and plugged it in the info here... I couldn't believe it went up to 4.8 so if it is wrong, someone correct me.
I have not decided on a monitor as of yet and I am running it on my 37 inch 1080p Samsung TV at the moment. I reused my wireless logitech keyboard and mouse combo, and also reused my X52 stick I purchased a while back with my old store bought PC.
If there's anything I could improve on let me know.
