Well this is my first PC build. Transitioning from a PS3. Was looking for a laptop, but then decided to go for a Gaming Desktop instead. Choosing the parts was the hardest because it was my first time .A lot of my time was spent researching each and every part and their compatibility with other Hardware. GTX 770(Zotac Amp!) had just come out, essentially a cheaper yet more efficient GTX 680 so that was a no brainer. Chose an H100i because of some overclocking i may do in the future. Got 1 stick of 8GB ram because it seems to be enough for gaming but i might get another. 120 GB of SSD seemed like a good idea for my Win 7 OS and a few games but i do regret that now and wish i took a 256 GB. Already Ordered a 1TB Seagate Momentus. I download alot of stuff (Yarrrr Matey!!!) so i need about 1 TB of space for music and things which would not require the fast boot of my SSD. Death Stalker because it was a chiclet style gaming keyboard , because i'm not too fond of mechanical Keyboards (don't hate). I have been playing L4d2, BF3, Metro 2033, borderlands 2, GTA 4 with good framerates. No problems with my Java or .NET Programming . I've been visiting pcpartpicker.com to get a good idea of what other people do for their builds. I have the two Intake Case Fans in the front, 2 for my H100i and one at the back. Im sorry if my cable management offended you, i tried my best.My Costs were way less than 1700 dollars as i already had the Keyboard, Mouse and i had got windows ultimate free with the purchase of one of my laptops so it was more around 1400 dollars
I named it Gabe because it sounded ironically plain and simple. I would love some constructive criticisms. Thank you.
