Description

I wanted a gaming desktop, and couldn't find a prebuilt that was decent, so I ended up building my own. Didn't have any trouble with the build, my one thing is that the PSU isn't modular so it doesn't look as clean as I wish it would. And btw on the interior picture, the cord going through the drive bay on the bottom right connects the two panel fans if you were wondering. I'm not too crazy about the motherboard, but everything seems to be working fine except 1 or 2 of the USB 3.0 ports. I'm not going through an RMA over a couple of USB's.

I actually spent a good amount less than what PCPartPicker has listed.

I got about $150 in rebates and discounts, and was able to snag the case $45 off, and AC3 came with my GPU. So I used the savings to get some Green LED fans to match my other Razer peripherals. I have the 2013 Deathadder, a Goliathus control mousepad, and a pair of Chimaera's and I wanted the theme to flow through everything. Will be getting a matching keyboard soon.

Overall I am proud of it, it's a little ruff around the edges but I'll get that all sorted out. I appreciate constructive criticism and suggestions. Thanks!

P.S. - I didn't get an SSD because I'm waiting for the prices to drop so I can get a bigger one (around 500GB). Hopefully with time they will have more space and the price will go down. We'll see.

Great build! I legit see NOTHING wrong with this build! Great choices, great balance in parts, and pretty good cable management for a non-modular!

Nice work!

Nice build. I have seen some ssds for lower prices aftermarket. They are fairly expensive now as they are fast and new.

Yeah. I'm hoping as the technology matures we see prices drop faster.

Don't get your hopes up for cheap SSDs. The technology itself, as nice as it is, is doomed. The problem with making larger sizes is space. There are a few articles out on it. By the time SSDs start to get "cheap" something new will probably be in it's place. $160 for a 250GB SSD is a good price, there are a few out there in that range, and you'll love the speed increase.

I have the same motherboard, sucks it isn't working 100% for you; overall nice build for 1000$!

Thanks! And yeah, but as long as it's just the a few of the USB's it should be fine.

I never plan on doing SLI. I don't look to "pwn teh noobz wit teh high frameratez". Haha and all I'd have to do is upgrade my PSU.

Probably not gunna check this but as i am doing some research i have two questions. Seen as you have had the computer for almost a year now. How is the case (because its beautiful) and how is the psu? I have heard people say it makes ticking noises?
