Description

This is my first rig I've put together. With the help of my little brother we put together this machine as my ultimate gaming rig and it's been a dream.

why did that mouse stand out to you? There are plenty of better mice with more features below the price range.

edit: And why window 7 ultimate you will barely use the extra features that come with it.

I just wanted a wired mouse with a couple extra programmable buttons and that was the best one Best Buy had the day I was there, and I certainly didn't pay $150 for it so I'm not sure where that price came from. And my brother got Windows for me, I didn't ask questions, just knew I did not want Windows 8.

Thanks, everyone! Games are great on it. I've mostly been playing Assassin's Creed IV, Everquest 2 and my old standby, Civilization V and they all run amazingly. The headphone amp is a Turtle Beach Earforce DDS that my brother gave to me after using it for a couple years, but I recently took it out because it was making a strange beeping noise through my speakers (which are actually Klipsch, not Logitech, just for some reason they weren't an available choice.) And most of the peripherals I've had for a while, just the tower was built recently and the FX-6350 was the best I could do for my price range at the time. Still a good processor though.

How about this with the mouse and keyboard of your choice. WAY better system.

Looks like a good system, indeed, but mine's already built :) It does great for what I'm using it for but when it needs upgrades I'll likely go Intel.

COol, but consider it. All your parts are still within warranty so you might be able to return them.
