ok, this is my first full pc build, I've upgraded parts etc... on old computers, but after a couple years of having to make do with just a laptop I decided to take the plunge and get all the parts for a proper PC. I guess you'd describe it as an everything PC, it's hopefully good for some gaming, some video work, some general desktop usage etc.... parts were also selected with overclocking in mind, as it's not something I've done before but I definitely want to do it so did my best to make sure everything was OC friendly. Parts were also chosen with looks in mind as well.
I know for proper gaming I could have gotten a better GPU, but my friend has a 660ti and it plays all the games I want it too on high settings and that's good enough for me! besides I can always upgrade at a later date as money wasn't unlimited for this build and pretty much all the newer cards were a lot more money considering I knew the 660ti was good enough for me, especially as nearly all my previous gaming has been on consoles and it's fits in with the whole "OC friendly" thing. I know some might say I should have gone amd and maybe I might have got more for my £ that way but I've always been an "Nvidea guy" can't really explain why, no reason for it, I just am lol.
I'll update with benchmark results, temps etc... as i get them tomorrow as I've not actually installed Windows yet as it's getting late. It may be a little bit of time before i OC because as this is the first full PC I've built I want to have it running for a little while until I'm sure it won't blow up because I did something wrong haha
also sorry for the lack of pics during the build, but it was pretty fiddly getting everything in the case (for anyone wondering, a H100i, in this case, with this Mobo mounting it as I have, is bloomin fiddly!) and looking what I think is halfway decent so I sort of forgot to take pics as I was going along so I'm afraid you all have to cope with some rather rubbish iPhone photo's
so tomorrow the plans are get windows installed, tidy up the wiring, get some better pics and get some temps/benchmarks while in it's standard non OC set up
Comments are welcome but please go easy on me haha
score added for the system not OC'd, OC'd scores/temps to follow
