This is my first build, i researched for weeks on the parts and this is what I came up with, and boy am I happy. Up until last week I had not had a desktop pc in about 4 years, I've been running a 2010 iMac. I love the thing but it was time to upgrade and that it is. This thing flies! I am quite sure I will NOT go back to apple for a LONG time unless I decided to buy one of their monitors because they are beautiful. Overall had no problems for my first build! Ran into one snag when I forgot to switch the power supply on and caused a bit of stress but I made it through and I loved it.
I have absolutely caught the bug and I'm looking for my second build now.
I know the back is a little messy but for the most part I think the front looks great and I am quite proud of it.
I attached a couple screenshots of BF3 it runs at about 70+ FPS(top right) and Planetside 2 runs at about the same.
Not sure if I should overclock or not because I did a little to 4.0Ghz and saw no improvements in FPS so unless someone can convince me otherwise I will probably just keep it at its little 5% OC.
Any advise is more than welcome!!
Watching the Newegg tutorials on how to build a computer really helped.
