Hello fellow PC builders, I am thebum2000. What you are looking at on this page is my first custom build. If you didn't notice already, some of the parts are a bit dirty. That's because they were purchased quite awhile ago. Amazon was being stupid and wouldn't deliver my RAM, so I had to wait a few extra weeks with my parts just sitting around collecting dust, especially my case. And no, this isn't my house, this is my friend's basement which has a nice workshop area where we can put together builds. The pictures weren't taken in the workshop however, they were taken on an air hockey table somewhere else in the basement.
I needed a system that was capable of playing FPS and MMO games at ultra settings, or near it anyway. I plan to add a second 270X in the future, although I'm already pretty satisfied with the performance increase over my old 750 Ti, which was struggling playing at high details and was artifacting in some games. A friend kept telling me to avoid the 750 Ti and get the 270X, but I originally didn't listen. That same friend was the one that had helped me learn about hardware and PC building. In fact, he was the one that took the pictures and guided me through most of the build. He also successfully overclocked the CPU to 8350 speeds, which works great, and if you haven't already noticed, the temperatures are unbelievably low. I was actually worried about how hot it would get due to Intel fanboys going all over the web saying "8320 sucks, it will destroy your power bill and heat up the entire house." The temperatures are completely legit though, I ran a few intensive games and recorded the temperatures with a program called "CoreTemp."
In conclusion, (sorry that this is starting to sound like an English paper,) I would recommend all of these parts, they work great and get the job done. But if you prefer Intel or NVidia that is fine by me, I believe that it doesn't matter what company it comes from as long as we destroy those "next generation consoles," which this system has already done. If you need PC advice, leave a comment and I will have my friend (NoobKiller260) respond as soon as possible, I will try to help as well.
(I apologize for the one creepy image, I do weird stuff during breaks.)
