Description

Because of pcpartpicker's limitations, this does not show my full complete build.

In addition to the two EVGA Superclocked GTX 460's in SLI, I have an ASUS GT 430 for dedicated PhysX (not a great card, but didn't want to just throw it out).

The sound card pictured was changed out due to a sale on Newegg.com for the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series card (the one with the front panel).

There is also a 23-inch version of that monitor that I had before next to the 27-inch. Amazing quality product from Samsung.

A Koutech IO-RCM630 Multi-in-1 USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Front Panel Internal Card Reader with USB 3.0 Port (3.5") is also on the front panel, along with an NZXT Bunker (free promotional item with purchase of the Phantom).

I rock a pair of Fatal1ty MKII headphones as well.

It is worth noting that the prices listed here are MUCH more then I originally paid, as some items I already had (Gt 430, 2 hard drives), and everything was on sale. In total I spent ~$1,700.

The i5-2500k I have overclocked to 4.5GHz (on air only) running idle temps of 30 to 35 Celsius, and load temps of 60 to 65 Celsius. The GTX 460's are overclocked to 850MHz Core and 1900 Memory, temps idle 37 Celsius, load 60 to 70 Celsius.

So, for my first build, how do you guys think I did? Thoughts, suggestions, room for improvement, etc?

Thanks!
