So this pc is the result of frustration when i bought a pre-built "gaming pc" 2 years ago.(from ironside computers). it had a gtx 760 and a athlon 750 in it. the thing was screaming everytime i would play bf4 and 40 fps was not where i wanted to be. this is where the birthing of this pc started. i began learning about assembling computers from LTT tek syndacate and pcpp. What i wanted from the new computer was max settings over 100fps in majority of titles. i also wanted an fx eight core because at the time the prices for an i7 (which was my other option) were way out of my price range. and the wow factor of saying i got a 8 core 4.7ghz clocked processor in my rig. and as far as the 970s go i bought the first one with christmas money last year and the second one this year. and i know 1 single more powerful card is better but the 970s scale really well. the original case i had came with the prebuild (raidmax cobra z) and i was using that with my new parts i.e. cpu, cpu cooler, MB, ram, 1. 970, a cx750m, ssd, toshiba drive, both recycled from my prebuild. this year i got the master case pro 5 and i love it. everything from the cable management holes, to the drive cage modular design, and the ssd rails. after i got the second 970 i used a kill-a-watt meter to see what i was drawing from the wall 700w under full load so the cx750m wasnt going to do it so i got my overkill beast of a power supply but reasonably priced g2 power supply the 7 year warranty is really what made me buy it. as far as assembly went it was a breeze everything went into the right spots it posted first try. the one weird thing that i do have with it is that i have to press the power button twice because the first press only flashes it on the immediately back off but the second press works just fine. dont know whats gonig on but it still works so its fine. the only other difficult thing about this build was the power supply bracket, for some reason the screws to the case would not align but i think it was just to do with the foam on the power supply rails. but other than that it was a lot of fun and defiantly will be doing again. and please dont tell me i could have built a better pc for cheaper I ALREADY KNOW. but for some reason i just went with amd.
