At first i had a friend build the PC for me. I gave him $1,000 and told him make me something good. I had no idea about computers and i couldn't trust myself to build it on my own. I loved it at first but i soon came to realize i wanted more so the first thing i did was upgrade the graphics card and sold the original back to my mate who built it the PC for me.

Next thing i did was buy an SSD for faster boot times and faster loading times in some games. A few months later the power supply failed on me and i had to buy a new one. A year later i upgraded again adding another hard drive, Liquid cpu cooler, fan controller, and upgrading the graphics card to a GTX 780. I kept the build like that for over a year again but i felt like i needed to show it some more love. So i bought a new Case, Power supply and some LED strips the end result is what you see today.

I named it Sinon after the in game alias of Asada Shino in Sword Art Online. To me it sounded cool so i went with it. Yes i could have chosen better names but a cute anime girl with a sniper rifle won!

I have a lot of plans for my build in the future but PC part prices in Australia are stupidly high so i just add things when i get the money to do so. But i like the way it has turned out so far and it will look better as time goes on.

Wish list: i7-5820K CPU, MSI X99 Gaming 9 ACK Motherboard, 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400MHZ RAM, 2x Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980s

Edit New Addition Kingston SSDNow v300 240GB SSD for my Steam library and other games.

Unfortunately some users are being a little harsh. I agree with what they're saying however. I just think put in a more focused and helpful way would have been a better solution.

My suggestions?

Take less better quality pictures! We're perfectly fine with like 10 images if they look fantastic! They help your build shine and they help make our eyes not bleed :)

Fix your grammar and structure your paragraph properly. It's an eye-sore and I have honestly not read it because of that reason. If you fix it up put it into smaller more grammatically correct paragraphs/sentences then I'll be more then happy to come have a read and so will everyone else!

It's unfortunate that your experience on this website has started out sloppy but it just shows you how passionate we are! And so should you, this build looks like it could be excellent! Some better pictures and a neater more structured description and this will be highly praised!

Edited i tried my best :D I'm dyslexic and it looked fine to me when i wrote it, but after reading it again i cringed at it just much as everyone else probably did. Not much can be done about the photo quality till i get a new phone.

That's perfectly fine mate! I'm just happy you posted it! As I suspected their was another reason which is why I didn't come off as a huge D**khead.

And yes.. Aussie prices suck!

This is not the first time i have posted a build on hear but i thought i would start a new one again as the changes i have made have been quite drastic. Didn't think i would cop so much crap tho lol.

Im not done with this build i have a few things already saved up for just shopping around for prices :) but life is most likely going to eat those funds before i can waste it away on my pc again :(

It's the internet... You got lucky.

but life is most likely going to eat those funds before i can waste it away on my pc again :(

You would think that... but the sinkhole that is PC hardware will get bigger and bigger and will consume you!

Hi, I was wondering why you chose the 780? It's a very expensive card for it's performance. If I were you, I would've gone with a 970, it's half the price of the 780 and actually achieves better performance. Even still this is quite a cool pimped out build, good job.

at the time the 970 was not released nether was the 780ti. it was the best single GPU option at the time. if i waited literally 2 months i would have got the 780ti. besides its still a great card yes the newer models beat it out in performance but its not by much unless its a titian x or 980

I was searching to see what the Fenix Recon looked like in the Enthoo pro. This was very helpful, thank you.
