Check out my first build Tags: New Build Computer Systems Last response: June 27, 2011 2:13 AM in Systems Share intenseblue98rt June 27, 2011 1:29:26 AM This is my new computer. Built by me My first computer build. Im very happy with how it turned out. No, its not perfect but I did have a budget and im a noob computer builder. Here are the specs. Cooler Master Elite 430 MID TOWER Case Asus Sabertooth P67 Motherboard Intel Core i5-2500k CPU EVGA GTX 570 SC GPU Corsair H60 Liquid CPU cooler Corsair 750 PSU G.Skill 2x 2GB Ram 1600 WD 500GB hard drive (will add additional hard drive if needed) ASUS DVD-RW optical drive ASUS 23" 1080P HD Monitor 5 120mm fans, (2 on H60 Radiator, 1 on door, 1 infront, 1 exhaust on top) 1 50mm Motherboard assist fan Windows 7 64bit. Total cost - $1500ish Here are some pictures. Yes the cable management sucks but im using a non-modular PSU and a mid tower case so cable management is difficult.

You should post some pics over in this thread! http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/310222-31-hardware-me... kajabla June 27, 2011 1:50:47 AM Looks pretty boss. Could have gone with a lower-wattage power supply: this thing is OP for one 570, which would be happy with 500 or 550, and not quite enough for 2, which would take 800 or 850.

Add another 150w for the CPU and rest of the system and you still have a nice 200w overhead. intenseblue98rt June 27, 2011 2:13:41 AM Thanks for the link.
