I feel pretty good about this first-time build. Everything is paid for, now I can relax and eat ramen for six weeks.

Opinions welcome! Ended up paying about $40 in sales tax because I live in NJ. Oh well.

Built this computer around the R9 280X with the intention of overclocking the **** out of it. I'll probably need to add a few more case fans or a cooler but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Couldn't get the Gigabyte 990 mobo because everything sold out on Newegg by the time I had enough capital to buy all the stuff I needed.

I dig the look of the all-white NZXT case.
