It has been a little over a year now since I came here. I am grateful that this site exists and it has been very helpful in planning out my build. As of Jan.7, 2016, my current build Nevermore is complete.
While I am not an expert, I have gained a lot of knowledge about building. Also, I hope to help others learn and maybe keep them from making the same mistakes I did. For example, when I put a build together for somebody, I try to make it the best it can be for their budget. Some parts may be more than they need now, yet due to my own experiences, I let them know about building with expandability/increased capability in mind.
I love to plan out and build things. And now that I have finished my first full build, from a bare case to a fully modified system, I know that I want to do more. It was an amazing experience.
