Description

Built for Gaming and General use. Spent a better part of a month just planning what parts I eventually wanted. I manage to get most of this on sale. I went with the Extreme6 over the Extreme4 because at the time it was only 10 bucks more and came with RAM that I sold since I already had RAM. Arctic Silver was only 6 bucks and I'll see how it holds up. The mouse and keyboard are perfect for what I need them for. (I do not mind the MW3 tag on them, glad they made them cheaper then what they originally are) I have a bunch of case fans, extra ones to put in builds I'll be doing for family and friends. Cannot wait to overclock this CPU

Future Additions: SSD, 200mm fan upgrade on top and front, Fan controller

Good build, but in one of the pictures it shows the case on a carpet? Id watch out to make sure you power supply has enough room to draw in air without suffocating it.

It was only there for the picture, It wasn't built in that picture. I have it on a stand, far from the carpet. :)

Nice build! The extreme6 is a bit overkill, a extreme4 would have been fine. Also for gpu, I would recommend a 7950 or crossfire 7850. Also gtx 670's are awesome, just a bit expensive.

It was but it was only 10 bucks more. Which 7950? Told go with Sapphire

It depends what your budget are. There's a sapphire 7950 that frequently drops to about $270. That's the cheapest one.

7870 XT for $$$ savings

I would pick up any 7950 with a good cooler, preferably dual fans, and good reviews. I would also get a 7950 instead of a 7870 Xt, don't get me wrong XT's are pretty awesome, but the 7950 can be overlclocked to 7970 performance level.

Awesome! Make sure to overclock the crap out of it! Use MSI Afterburner. Could you post the model?

Glad to see you took your time on cable management. Looks cleaner even without spending the extra money on color scheme, etc.

She's gonna put a big smile on your face when you drop your GPU in, that's for sure.

Good work. Upvote.

Took me a bit but I still have work to do. I want to redo it to make it look even better. I'll do it when I get the GPU

Regarding the GPU, I would recommend the 7970 if you can afford it, however the 7950 is still a great GPU.

Good parts, but you should have tried to create a color scheme. Good choice on the HDD and CPU.

I felt like that would have added more to the cost just getting particular parts. But it would have been pretty neat

Thanks but for this price range I don't see how I could have done much better. I got every part I wanted. Majority on sale.

It is a great build for the price, if you do remember to include the monitor and everything. Only thing I'd critique is the power supply, you can get a Seasonic one (much better brand) for $30 less for the same wattage and efficiency.
