[Build Complete] Thanks for the help! Tags: Homebuilt Systems Product Last response: October 9, 2011 12:47 PM in Systems Share FubsyGamr October 9, 2011 9:53:42 AM Hey guys! Today, I was able to build my very first PC, thanks to a lot of help from Tom's Hardware and awesome forum-goers like you! I just wanted to show off a bit, as I am proud to have had it work out so well. I took my time, and it booted up the very first time I hit the power button. (: Here are a few pictures, as well as the specs. EDIT: The Scythe Mugen 3 came damaged, so I had to RMA it and will install it as soon as I get the new one. PLEASE ignore the crazy cable mess on the desk. We are moving next week, so I didn't bother with outside cable management Part list permalink / Part price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($214.99 @ SuperBiiz) CPU Cooler: Scythe SCMG-3000 74.2 CFM CPU Cooler ($49.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme 4 (B3) ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($168.49 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($59.99 @ Newegg) Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ Newegg) Hard Drive: Crucial M4 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($191.99 @ Amazon) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($569.99 @ Amazon) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($569.99 @ Amazon) Case: Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case ($179.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 950W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($135.98 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Sony AD-7260S-0B DVD/CD Writer ($21.99 @ SuperBiiz) Monitor: Acer GD235HZbid 23.6" Monitor ($330.34 @ CompUSA) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit) ($191.49 @ Mwave) Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Wired Gaming Keyboard ($99.99 @ Newegg) Mouse: Razer RZ01-00120400-R3U1 Wireless Laser Mouse ($127.55 @ Newegg) Total: $2982.75 (Prices include shipping and discounts when available.)
