Description

My love of Planetside 2, love of eyecandy, and the pursuit of good framerates led me to build my first PC, allow me to introduce.. The Decimator! This rig can handle anything I throw at it -be it gaming or writing essays- and look awesome at the same time. My only hiccup in the build was when windows corrupted... three times EDIT: It just did again!! Luckily due to backups and the wonders of partitions seperating my files and the system, nothing has been lost.

I liked the 800d for it's aesthetics, cable management, and space. I went overkill on the fans because I can :P

You didn't go that overkill, the 800d has issues with aircooling unless you install those 3 fans at the top so you did a good job.

One thing is certain...this computer will max out any task or game.

Why not a 27" monitor or 144Hz monitor?

8 fans is overkill but if you like it...ok

SSD in the future? For $2000 I'd want at least a 240GB SSD.

For a 750w power supply, I wouldn't have gone with the corsair cx series. They are good in budget builds, but when you are running high wattage builds, you want better build quality like seasonic or its rebranded derivatives like xfx. It's an "I have the money, so I'm going to spend it build," so you need to spend the money for a decent power supply. The caps in the corsair cx are cheaper chinese ones instead of the Japanese 105C ones you find in better power supplies. Otherwise it's a great build and will be blazing fast once you add an SSD.

I was under the impression that corsair power supplies were very good according to reviews.

The corsair hx and tx are. The CX are good but not good enough for midrange to high-end builds. They use cheaper capacitors from China rather than Japan. They may not hold up over time if stressed to extreme amounts constantly.

There's a reply button under the comment also why didn't you go with the ACX dual for cooler from EVGA? :P Great build none the less also I agree with you about the fans (I have 7 fans in my pc...well they're installed just need enough money for the cpu,gpu,and mobo) have fun gaming, also what frames does that card get in PS2? BF3?

They're out of stock on the 780 most places. I've been keeping an eye on them, in hopes to get one myself. ):

Wait for the classified ACX. It launches soon, I don't know the exact date though. It is the same card but with slightly faster clocks and more power phases.

I personally, am considering Hydro Copper Classified when it comes out.

I've been curious about MSI's super secret Lightning 780 that as far as I know they've yet to show anyone at Computex.

I don't know if they actually took the time to create a lightning model for the 780 because the 700 series seems to be kind of ***-backwards with the 770 having a lightning model and aftermarket coolers but not the 780. I've been curious about that too, along with the Asus Matrix 780. Personally I like the Classified 780 though, an aftermarket cooler and lots of power phases, the only reason to get the other top models of it would be if the cooler performed better in my opinion.

Another card is also planned when I need the extra power so I went stock blower. I get around 50 fps stock clock in ps2 and I don't like EA so I don't play bf3.

am i the only one who is a thinks a 780 is complete overkill for a single 1080p monitor?

awesome build and it looks great. I to would go w/ a 128 or 240 SSD, this is a must for a build like this. Turn your WD black into the data drive and re-install the OS on the SSD. It will blow your mind ;)

Already got the partitions set up so I can transfer it whenever I get an ssd.

Nice first build (I wish I could afford this!). Maybe a modular PSU would have been nice but you've got a big enough case to hide them. Another upgrade an SSD, pretty much a must for anything system over $650. Nice

The PSU is semi modular, so it was a breeze to work with.
