New and First build

Hello to all,

Im Michael 42 and a disabled vet. I decided to build my first computer. Im a world of warcraft gamer 8 yrs running. Im looking for some info on my current system. I would like to ovrclock it. Simple is better for me for personal reasons. I know how to get into the bios but thats about it.

As for my system:

NVIDIA - GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card

AMD FX-8350 FX-Series Eight-Core Processor Edition, Black AM3 FD8350FRHKBOX

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

APEVIA WARLOCK POWER ATX-WA1100W 1100W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply

Razer - BlackWidow Ultimate 2013 Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Razer - Naga Hex Expert MOBA/Action-RPG Laser Gaming Mouse - Black/Green

I will be instlling a SSD 120gb samsung pro onces it gets here. not sure if that matters at all. Hope this info I posted is enough.

Im going to keep it air cooled if at all possible.

  1. What are you going to be using the SSD for? A boot drive? If so you will have to move your OS to it after formatting it. It is a bit of a complicated process but doable if you are willing to do trial and error.

    I have no experience with OC'ing an AMD processor so I can't help you there. However you can OC the Graphics with MSI's Afterburner software (available from MSI directly or on I use Afterburner to OC my SLI'd 470's (and neither is from MSI).
