Description

Basically got sick and tired of using laptops for gaming. Decided one day that i wanted to put together my own gaming PC, had a friend help me and it went excessively well. I'm happy that i got this rig together and i can finally play multiple games with smooth gameplay :)

Unless your case is going to be on LONG carpet, flip your power supply so it is not sucking the hot air from in the case. Doing this will give you even further length on the cables which should all be routed behind the motherboard tray. There is a hole directly above the motherboard for that top power cable to be routed through, its long enough either way but flipping the power supply would help it be longer.

Cables can trap heat, prevent airflow and attract unwanted dust all are bad for a computers components, that is why I make my suggestion. Happy gaming.

He means that you should definitely flip your power supply UNLESS you have it on a long carpet.

If thats the situation then no reason not to have the fan facing down. That is having your power supply suck in all the hot air - heat = shortened life for electronics. Flip that thing and get those wires behind that motherboard soldier!!

The mouse and keyboard is wonderful! I love the keystrokes for the keyboard, and the mouse is very comfortable and smooth!

With this high of a budget you should have gotten a modular power supply, for the sake of organization and airflow.

for $1000, this is extremely well-planned. consider getting an SSD later on to put your OS and games on it. it won't do any favors for framerates, but it will cut down on loading times

should have gotten a 7950.

The CPU is a step down but this build would have gotten you alot more FPS in most games for around the same price. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/ImAustin/saved/1pgB

Yeah, i could've gotten a better/cheaper graphics card, but im quite content with my 660 TI :) Thanks for the suggestion though!

no way. the 650 ti boost is no where near the 660 ti. 768 CUDA cores for the 650 ti boost will never compete with the 1344 that the 660 Ti has.

Because we disagree with him?

In the 2012 election, (assuming you're american), say you didn't agree with what Obama said. Are you gonna go out and vote for him because he stated his opinion? (and clearly some people did, but this is not PCPartPolitics)

You could have gone with a 500W PSU.

on full load, i assume this build would use like 330w and overclocking the cpu + gpu would probably yield an extra 50-70w which would limit upgradability.
