Hi all, I finally took the plunge after a month or so researching my components and after 4 years of my old PC, I decided to enter the world of PC building. Special mention to some PCPartsPickers members who commented and advised me in the thread I posted in the Part List Opinions Wanted sub-section. Made a slight mistake in thinking my old optical drive would be able to be placed into my new build but it turns out it was incompatible.
The only components that I am still waiting to purchase is a new optical drive (as mentioned above) and a new graphics card. I have had to used my old graphics card from my old pre-purchased PC which was a XFX HD 5770 but couldn't find the exact on here so selected the PowerColor one. I'm looking at either the Sapphire HD 7870 XT or spending a bit more and getting the Sapphire HD 7950 Vapox-X.
I am looking to OC the CPU in the future but I am a noob at these things and may wait a few months before I venture into any tinkering. It took me about 4-5 hours to build and I am waiting to improve my cable management (especially in the back of the case) when I receive and install a new GPU and optical drive. Overall though, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience building my own PC and I hope you guys be gentle and comment nice on my build :D Thank you.
