My very first build!

This is a little late. I built my first system a little over a month ago. But I though the world should know. :bounce:

AMD Athlon II 630 @ 3.6 Ghz
Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-UD2H
2x2GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066
500GB Seagate Barracuda
XFX 5770!
Samusung DVD Burner
Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Thermaltake V3 Black Edition
Windows 7 64 bit
Corsair 650TX
Acer 23" Monitor

So, I have been wanting to build my own PC for about two years. I am 14 now. And a month ago I got the funds to build this.
Might post pics later.

  1. Nice one. And please do post some pics.

    One question. Why the DDR2? Budget a bit low for DDR3?
  2. You built the system over a month ago but only got the funds for it a month ago?
  3. nice build
  4. Well using DDR2 was a "D'oh!" mistake. I was in Micro Center and the guy assisting me asked "DDR2 or DDR3?". I arbitrarily decided "DDR2!" DDR3 (as I noticed later) is about the same price as DDR2. Oh well. I will upgrade my processor, mobo, and RAM later...

    I got funds late May (2 months ago) and built in June 5th.
  5. you'll learn
  6. I knew it was the same price. I just thought "I like even numbers."
    Pics are coming in little bit.

  7. Pictures are not very good. I did not have a camera on hand. They were taken by my Motorola Droid :love:.

    Just right click the picture and press "Open image in new tab".
