A little over a month ago I had no idea what it took to build a PC. As such, this is my first PC build. I think it turned out pretty well considering. If I could go back I would probably have purchased some different memory. I went with the blue vengeance because at the time I was planning a blue interior with a different mobo and psu. Oh well, it still looks okay. The only other major change I have made from the initial build was switching from a Sapphire Vapor X 7970 Ghz to the current ASUS DCUII Top R9 280x.
My girlfriend is looking at building a gaming PC as well. I might look to unload my psu and CPU cooler. It would be nice if I were able to get the option to crossfire and start getting into overclocking. As it stands, I am pretty happy with my new computer. I had a really fun time planning and constructing it. Thanks to everyone who had helped me with some of the decisions. Any input or comments would be greatly appreciated.
