My OCD kicked in and I spent A LOT of money! I haven't pushed the CPU completely yet. Taking baby steps. This is all new to me, and I don't want to fry my investment right at the get go. And I know, I went overboard on the ram, But I use RAM DISK, I went overboard on the PSU (but you never know when you'll upgrade something). I should have gotten better video cards, but at the time money was the issue. My neighbor started this build for me in exchange for some work, (hence the MOBO, and processor). I took it over after I saw that wasn't EXACTLY what I wanted. SO, it's been a work in progress, and some things will still be changed out in due time. I can use a lot of this in a spare system for my wife. But it was a start. And I've learned a lot in the meantime. But all in all it's a nice rig. IDC who you are.
