This is my first build and it's name is Erebus, which is Greek for "darkness". I was hoping to go with a 270x or 280x, but microcenter didn't have any left. Oh yes, I was too impatient. I tried ordering from Newegg, which is where I bought the RAM from and the shipping took too long. So i went to Microcenter on black friday and bought all the parts even thought it's prices are little big too high.
CPU: This isn't the 8350, but it's little brother, 8320. It works great! I was using my parent's Core 2 duo, which is like 2.5 GHz and this is 3.5 GHz and the feel is good. It can handle anything without a hiccup. This was cheaper than 6300 (my first choice) so I bought this.
Motherboard: I chose this because it was for sale. I really like Dr. Debug (When you turn it on, it shows some codes. I don't know if it's like that or mine has a problem. But after 2 seconds, it's gone. See pictures)
CPU Cooler: Everyone is talking about the EVO 212. So, I bought it because of everyone likes it. Also, I like the Mitsubishi Evo. This is great! I have a laptop that goes up to 100 Celsius, and after seeing this, my mind blew to mars. Compare 7 to 100. I had no idea what I was doing when I was installing the fan. All the YT videos said to plan, and I was like PLAN WHAT?!?! This is what they were talking about.
Memory: It's okay. I had to go to bios and change it to 1600.
Video Card: HOLY SHIET!! I can run any game I have at 60 FPS at ultra with AA, V sync and everything. I played Battlefield 3 without the 8-bit blow animation of a frag on xbox 360. IT FELT GOOD! I haven't got BF4 yet, but the guy at Microcenter was generous enough to give me Splinter Cell, AC4, and Batman origins. They all play beautifully. I don't have a spare monitor, so I plugged it into my 42" sony TV. Mom is pissed.
Case: The cool air flowing feels great. Great room and has potential upgrade space.
PSU: Its okay. It's not modular or semi, so I had to tuck everything behind. The motherboard plugs were weird. Continuous flow of energy.
