This was the first system I ever built. Thanks to PCPartPicker and the crew that helped me on Teamspeak. I highly recommend anyone building a system to use www.reddit.com/r/buildapc , and the IRC/Teamspeak associated with that subreddit. People are usually very helpful!
The system I built is a total beast. I decided after years of gaming on Sager laptops (which are very good!) that I should really just take the plunge into an all out gaming desktop. I did not really have a maximum budget, but also didn't want to spend totally frivolously, and I believe I accomplished my goal in that sense.
Thanks to Jappetto for the custom extensions. They are beautiful!
I'm going to do a totally new album soon with pictures taken on a Nexux 5, with better lighting etc. Stay tuned.
