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...

Approximate Purchase Date: Already purchased

Budget Range:$2000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

Parts Not Required:keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts Newegg

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences:by brand or type: None really, just reliable brands.

Overclocking: Yes, but most likely only the CPU.

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution:1920x1080

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.

It is a nice build , the only thing I would change is the SSD . I would try to see if I could get a sata 3 SSD. If you are not locked in on the case you could try this one , it comes wuth a power supply and the money you save you could put towards the SSD.

1. Of course
2. Yes
3. Personal preference

Second set:
1. No experience with that
2. The theory is that it will be able to run Ivy Bridge, but over the past weeks I've seen vacillation of opinion on the subject.

Thats way to much stuff to return, and that case looks like something off of startrek.

MIght take your suggestion with the cpu cooler though.

what will you return other than the case. all of those are quality parts made by quality manufacturers. if you think the asrock board is bad, it isnt, it is ivy bridge ready and has pcie 3.0. i was thinking you would act that way to the case though haha. it is really a good case but it is your build- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
