  1. Nice build. Here's my latest which should be finished in Feb

    AMD FX 8170 if there is such a beast at that time
    Gigabyte 990FX UD5
    Mushkin 8GB radioactive memory DDR3 1600
    Spire Thermax Eclipse II, or AMD water cooling
    TF III HD 6950
    NZXT Phantom heavily modded
    NZXT Hale 90 750W
    OCZ 120GB Vertex III SSD
    Samsung 1TB F3
    Custom lighting and fans
  2. I have some suggestions for you. Amd is awful right now, all their processors get demolished by same priced intels. At that price point I would recommend an i5-2500k and raising the graphics to a 6970.
