I purchased from newegg the following items;
HITACHI HDS721050CLA362 (0F10381) 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive x2
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W
CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
HIS H697F2G2M Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
ASUS DVD-E818A4/BLK/B/GEN Black 18X IDE DVD-ROM
My RAM is the OCZ REAPER 4GB (2X2GB) 1600 DDR3 240 PIN SDRAM (no longer on newegg or the ocz website)

Every so often my pc freezes on startup or while running I hear some sort of back feed noise as the screen freezes, also when I finally managed to get League of Legends downloaded it says I have a network cable unplugged I’ve tried multiple different cables and my laptop can still go wireless, all drivers are up to date and fresh off of a cd

First thing, you need to go to AMD.com and get the newest drivers for your video card. Next, check inside the pc and make sure that everything is plugged in. Is the graphics card fully inserted?

I would do a memory test. try booting up on just one stick of RAM, and if it goes ok, try the other. It's possible you have a bad stick.

Try that. You can copy it onto a cd from your laptop.
Also, how many screws did you use to mount the motherboard? you should only need 9, and in rare cases you can short the motherboard by putting in more.

go into the control panel/add remove. Uninstall the AMD drivers. Reboot. Do a custom or advanced install and opt NOT to install the sound drivers ( HDMI ). Just the CCC and the graphics driver.
