Description

I have been wanting to try my hand at building a PC for a while now. So for the past two months I have hand picked each part that I wanted to use through some simple research, benchmarks and customer reviews. I must admit once I got the final parts in I became pretty nervous as I knew it was time to finally start the actually building part lol. I tried to get good quality parts. Most of the parts that I got were actually aimed at PC gaming although I am not a veteran PC gamer. I love PS3 and was an Xbox person before the company decided to spit in its customers faces with all this crap with the xbox one. I then immediately sold my 360 and bought a PS3 and vowed to never get another xbox. Nevertheless I will be getting a PS4 and will also try my hand at PC gaming. Sorry for getting off topic haha.

     I found building this PC was a great sense of accomplishment. I would like to thank the people who took the time to answer my questions on this site's forum as well as many others. It was invaluable advice. I will also be adding an SSD in the near future.  I honestly can't wait to add the new pics this weekend I believe it will show off the interior of the case much better. By the way the reason the speakers and the Keyboard combo are listed as 0.00 is because I had already owned them for years and didn't come out of pocket for the build.

Great build, man! How do you like that motherboard so far? I'm thinking about upgrading to an FX-8350 at some point and would need to get an AM3+ mobo. Thank you.

Also, I have the same GPU and I must say, this thing kicks ***.

The motherboard is great I love it. Also thanks man for the compliment. I will also be upgrading sometime in the future to the FX-8350 that was part of the reason why I chose to get Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ if will handle it with ease from my understanding.

Great build & great choice on the MB. This MB has the best price/performance&features in the AM3+ range.

Also you should OC that CPU & GPU. :p

Thanks a lot. And yes I plan on doing some OC in the near future on the CPU and GPU as well. I am just taking my time getting all the info and stuff before I dive into that barrel of monkey's ;). Great minds must think alike because that is what I had in mind while shopping and purchasing these parts was OC.

Very true but it will more than likely be around 6 months or so before I upgrade the CPU so the prices maybe a lot different by then. Or at least I hope the prices are lower by then lol. One can never tell in the PC parts market its so up and down. But thanks for the advice :)

Are those LED Strips on the inside of the case? Or are the fans by themselves really lighting up that much? Also do you have a case fan hub or does your motherboard have enough sysfan headers on it?

I do have five 120 mm Blue led Rosewill fans installed as well as NZXT CB-LED20-BU Sleeved LED Kit - Blue, 2 m length. I don't have a fan hub and I had enough room on my motherboard.

There was a point in time where they were phasing out the 7950s so the cards were on sale for around $200.
