Well first off I would just like to say "Thank you" to everyone on the Tom's Hardware forums. In the past months I have been exploring the many pages on this forum, and had even more questions. Thru and thru you all have been there when I needed an answer for my new build, which, is now finally a home-built. This new home-built PC is now sitting on a pedestal so to speak. With a beautiful and quite silent purring coming from the inside of this beast's body. Right when I started putting my computer together I took care to do everything correctly and tripe-check after that. After a few weeks passed by I remembered to thank everyone that so graciously took the time out to help me in my journey and I have much gratitude. Without further ado, my PC's specifications.

Motherboard
-GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68

-CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W

Graphics Card

-Don't focus to much on this part, this is the only not new part.

Also this is my first ever new build so please don't criticize to hard, also I only have $800 to spend. Now a lot of the parts are cheaper than they were.

Yes it does very much so. I'm actually in the process of making another computer from spare parts I have laying around. It will be quite a fun project.
