It took me about three months to research this build, six days to acquire parts, and two days to build. I reused some parts from a previous computer such as the psu and an additional hdd. The part list below shows what I paid. I installed an already owned version of Windows 7 with an external hdd. Overall it was a great learning experience.
Planning on getting a Corsair HX750 psu
Edit - Got the PC Power & Cooling 750W
