This is a refresh of a build I made back in 2009 (my first love). Daddy's original war machine. Originally I wanted to keep the basics and just modernize, but eventually I just started a new build at the link below and sold this one to a friend in need of some reliability. Was a cool teaching opportunity and a chance to reflect on what I did wrong.
I remember first turning this thing on and just praying it would power up. Now, I'm a bit more discerning in the quality of parts and full functionality capabilities, but she was a stable mistress.

Note: I originally purchased a GTX 950, but later replaced it with a 970 I had left over from my new build, but didn't take new pics.
