Just wanted to share my new build. I selected parts over a period of about 2 months, and then bought and assembled, exept for a last minute graphics card change. My graphics card is on it's way here now. So far I am pleased by its performance.
CPU: Intel i5-2500k at 4.3 ghz- $180 at microcenter
MOBO: ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3- $140 at microcenter
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 1333 mhz cas latency lowered to 8- $35 on newegg
GPU: ASUS Radeon 5970- $300 on Ebay
PSU: Corsair Enthusiast series 650 Watt- $90 on Newegg
Case: Rosewill Blackhawk- $100 on newegg
this is my first build and I am very pleased. To buy a system like this woudlve costed twice as much, if not more. What do you guys think of my build, If you have any suggestions for parts to add or change please let me know.
If you just bought these parts why would you consider changing them ? If your graphics card is on its way how can you be pleased with the performance ? It is a nice looking build and it should perform well for you.
