Excuse the name, this build is probaly none of those adjectives listed above lol. I saw a guy in another thread do this to get more people to click his thread.

Anyway, i just got a bonus and its been 6 years i think since ive built a rig. Ive been busy these last 6 years so i sadly am not up to date with all the new technology and stuff but i spent like 30 minutes getting up to date.

I know this sounds ignorant, but i already ordered the parts lol. I basically wanted the computer to be with parts I picked and not some build that someone came up with for me. But i can still return some of the parts since i bought some of them at microcenter (but added them to the list on newegg.)

I decided to spent as much as i did because i dont want to make to many upgrades over the years.

Anyway here is my build.

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...

I ran the build by some of my friends and most of them asked the same question, so im sure most of you will to.

1. Are you sure that PSU is big enough? Yes, i think lol.

2. Are you sure that case is big enough for the GPU? Yes

3. Isnt an NVIDIA gpu better? Idk lol

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And heres some questions i have.

1. After ordering the build and reading on the fourms appearntly a smaller SSD is better for something called caching, should i return my SSD and get a smaller one?

2. Ive been hearing of some new CPUs/GPUs(AMD 7000 series, ivy bridge, bulldozer) Would this motherboard be able to run them if i wanted to upgrade it to one of them in the future?

And if you're going to make a case suggestion please dont suggest to me some alien startrek looking case with 100000 blue leds. I was into that stuff when i first started building computers but now i just want a sleek looking case.

Ivy Bridge is better than SandyBridge and It also support PCI-E 3.0 and Sandy Bridge dont... You should gotten a PCI-E 3.0 Board... Also you should gotten the Vertex 3 120 MAX IOSP... Smaller SSD are not recommended if you use it as Gaming because games usually takes 20GB(If high-end gaming with a single game) and windows takes 20GB and with all software, it'll be around 10GB which is 50GB taken already, what about other games you want to install or when you want to use Office 2010?... IDK about caching on SSD but I Thought they dont got any?
