Description

I built this primarily for gaming, but I needed to get a better machine since my old one was really outdated.

I'm running win7 pro on it (which I got for free thanks to being a computer science student :) The cooler master CPU fan was a PAIN to install

Thinking of going 2-way SLI but it might be going overboard lmk what you guys think Also what could I have done better? I'm not too good when it comes to hardware so any advice is welcome

The only thing I don't have yet is the case fan, but i'm planning to get it sometime this week

I forgot to take inside pics while putting it together lol. The instructions for the cooler weren't very clear for a beginner like me, I had to look it up on youtube

It's not really recommended to go SLI from the get-go. It's more efficient later on down the road when there has been a price drop on a matching video card.

Thanks that makes a lot of sense. Besides it just seemed as overkill for now so waiting is definitely the best option here.

Are you going to oc the cpu.Do you use one or two monitors.

I will eventually overclock it but for now it's good as is. I have 1 monitor as of now but next month I'm getting another one :)

Will both be 1080 or 1440p

Most likely 1080 because of financial reasons

16gb of ram is excessive, especially if you're only gaming.

Other than that, it all looks good!

Looks very well solidly built, but more pics, would be better.
