Hey all, Decided to build this because I needed a new PC for work/gaming (My old desktop decided to take a dump, over 8 years old - RIP).
I went with an i5 instead of an i7 solely because I didn't have enough money at the time (I had to rush-build this because I needed something for work as soon as possible.)
OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64, I already have the key for it from my previous machine.
Didn't go with an SSD due to lack of money, gotta make do with what you've got I suppose - still runs blazingly fast overall though.
I also added another fan to the side of the case, so cool air would rush right under the GPU fans.
Overall, it took about 2 - 3 hours to get this built (Majority of the time was routing cables to allow adequate airflow, lol.) I'm very happy with the end result of this build, and can't wait to try out all my games on my 32" flat-screen in 1080p. I previously had a GTX 260, so this will be a wonderful performance bump.
