Description

I bought all these parts at frys electronics because it was basically the same price. Plus I was tax exempt which is why I bought it there.

I was going to get the Asus P8Z77-V LK but i misread the name on it and i got the wrong one because I wanted to sli my gtx 660 ti. And I will not take it apart and drive 30 miles to go back.

Overall its a really good build and this is also my very first built from the ground up build. I am very pleased with it.

I got all these parts for $874.94 excluding tax since I didnt have to pay it.

I also need to rearrange the wires a bit but since at this moment im at my dads house im not gonna do it till I go to my moms tomorrow.

You could have saved a whole $6.18 if you bought it now!

Well the prices shown are without tax. If i bought them online i wouldve had to pay tax. Since I bought them at an actual store I didnt have to pay taxes

Looks very similar to a build I would get for under $1000! :)

I was going to flame you about your cable management, but my first build was also with a non modular PSU, and a case with some pretty mediocre management options. It didn't look quite as messy as yours, but it wasn't pretty. All in all I think you got a pretty good machine for what you spent. My suggested additions, a SSD and an aftermarket CPU cooler for OCing.

Ya, Im planning on getting a liquid cooler, and a 320gb ssd when I get more money which will probably be this summer.

I wouldn't waste your money on that large of a SSD. I have a SSD and a HDD in my build, and the SSD is great for your OS and basic programs, but games are pretty useless on it. Load times don't change much. If you have the money to blow anyway, then go for it, but if your on a budget just get a 128GB SSD. Its more than enough.

As for the cooler, I recommend the H80 (i guess they have a new H80i out, idk if its better or not). I have it and love the thing. Really anything in the Corsair Hydro series is pretty good.

Actually the load times in games can change a lot due to SSDs - just depends which one you have.

I suppose on games that have really long load times, but every game I play on my system loads up in 2-3 seconds, so any benefit from the SSD would be kind of pointless. Even GTAIV initial load only takes 4 seconds. It almost makes me mad cause I really like the song that plays on the load screen. XD

Well since you're going with a much smaller SSD than you thought, you could use the saved money for a quality one. The Samsung 840 Pro Series has gotten pretty great reviews, but not the 840, since it has been said to fail. I learned about that in this website actually, when I unintelligibly said they were better because they're newer than the 830... The things you learn.

I know a lot of people are grabbing the next one up. 250 or something, might not be a bad idea, but I've been using my 128 for six months about and never gone below 50GB.

You could put your ram in ports 1 and 3 for dual channel.

Does this case have rubber grommets that you can use to route your cables through the back? I'm thinking about getting this case and I would appreciate it if you wrote back, thanks.

I would've gotten an EVGA GTX 760 non OC, it slightly out performs the 760 TI. Great build and does the case have good cable management? I love the way that it looks and I am thinking on getting it. I just have to know if it's cable management is ok.
