So I got a couple new parts for Christmas to make my budget build a bit stronger.

CPU: It's easy, the 4690k is the latest overclockable i5 and I knew it would give a significant bump over my little X4 750K.

Motherboard: It was high end and looked cool. That was about the only reason I wanted it.

Case: Ever since I saw Austin Evans' video on his new computer in this case I knew that I wanted it. Cable management was a dream, it has tons of space behind the motherboard tray to rout cables.

The Hyper 212 Evo I got a while back for my 750K and will be installed some time soon, I just wanted to get her going and play some games before I had to install the cooler.

Forgot to add in the SSD and I did splurge a bit on the mech keyboard. Thanks!
