Started out making a 900 build. Ended up costing a little over $1000. After monitoring prices for a few months I ended up $12 over the average prices over all. Had to put my wireless card in the bottom pci-e 16 slot as the pci-e 1 was covered by my g card. Worked fine but locked up system after a few minutes. Ended up taking it out and running a cable until I figure it out. Runs like a champ. I went with win 8.1 because of the memory limitations with 7. I am running 8 g mem atm but plan on bumping up to 32. Have 1 stock 120 fan up top, red led 120 on the back and 1 stock 140 and a red led 140 on the front. Love the SSD. Plan on getting a T bite black WD for storage. Very quiet and smooth running machine.
