Description

This build isn't super complicated; although I bought the 4670k from Staples after learning I could get it for $180. There's 2x500GB WD Greens, 1x750GB WD Black and 1x2TB WD Black; the 500GB drive in the middle drive cage needs to be moved up to the 5.25" bay. The GPU is a Sapphire Radeon 7870XT, which I tend to prefer to call a 7930, because it uses the Tahiti LE chip rather than the Pitcairn chip used by other 7870 cards. I bought it about a year ago when my HD4890 finally kicked the bucket. Cable management at the back is an absolute travesty.

I really like basically everything about this build aside from that one thing. Sorry there aren't more pictures, I was trying to finish the whole thing before my roommate got home, and I just barely managed it.

i love windows 8.1. it is much faster than win7 in booting and just in general looks better i think.

where you gain speed, you sacrifice stability. I had numerous issues with 8 and 8.1, and decided to default back to 7 until a new OS is released (win9)

Just found this build, and I have to say that the front of your case looks like the Fractal Define R4

Yeah, I have too many HDDs as is- they just sort of show up in my random boxes of stuff sometimes. Other than the 2TB one, they're not really important at all. I'd like to replace the 2 500s and the 750 with another 2TB or a 3TB drive, but, effort/budget.
