Congrats on your first build! Doesn't it make you feel great?!? Enjoy!
And oh, Im looking into the XFX 5770 and the Antec 900 for my next build this month. What do you think of them?
It does feel good that everything worked the first time. I was kinda worried if i put the thermal paste on right, but i ran prime 95 all night and the CPU never got above 46c
when i first got the 900 i thought it was a huge case. Then when i put everything in there i realized it isnt as big as i would thought. I got everything to fit but the cable management took a little time. If you dont have to worry about case size i would go with the 1200 instead.
I havent loaded any games on this thing yet. My most demanding game right now is Oblivian. My old desktop is 8 year old. Looks like today i am going to get me a new game to test this thing out.
