Intro: WOW, first time doing this. I have always wanted to build my own computer and so this really is the computer ofmy dreams. Im really new to this. I know some ins and outs of a computer but overall ima complete Newbie. Any advice, questions, realizations, or comments are gladly appreciated!
Part 1: 5/31 - Parts ordered! I have to run to Micro Center to pick up the CPU and MOBO. 90% of the things will be here on June 3rd. The GPU will take longer since its not 2 day shipping. Any tips for where to look for guides on how to BUILD the actual computer?
Part 2: 6/4 - 90% of the computer is here! I ran an external test, brought a friend over, and slowly put everything into the computer! No it is up and running, the drives are installed, the hard drives have been formatted, and i can start downloading games before i get the GPU tomorrow! I will post pictures of the insides when the GPU comes in!
Part 3: 6/5 - DONE! got The 770, stuck that big boy in, updated all the drivers. Never have i seen video games run so smooth in my entire life. I actually still do not even believe that i can run something like Planetside 2 (which my other computer couldnt run it) on 60+ FPS when everything is set to high. OR Skyrim with everything on ultra and High res texture packs.
Overall: Super amazing. i need more demanding games! recommendations?
