Hey guys! So I have been saving and building my rig up bit by bit and I finally finished it.
ASRock 870 Extreme3 AM3 mobo, 16gb G.SKILL DDR3 1333mhz, Phenom ll X4 980 @ 4.3ghz, CM hyper 212 evo, WD Caviar black 1tb 6gbs, WD caviar Blue 320gb 6gbs, X2 1.5gb ea XFX HD 6870 DD edition in cfx, ASUS Xonar dg 5.1 sound card, Cisco wireless networking, NZXT LCD fan controller, Antec High Current Gamer 750w and a modded antec 300 with a clear window and custom cable management and 7 fans(six 120mm and 1 140mm). All in all was around $1450 or so with shipping
In all honesty, Intel is far to over priced for what it is. AMD+AMD runs great and I have my ram oc'd to 1866mhz @ 9-9-9-24. I should have stated that $150-$200 of the final price is extended warranties. The only thing I like about NVIDIA cards is physix.. didn't spell that right but oh well. i have my gpu's oc'd well past 1ghz on the core clock and 1.2ghz on the memory. I am waiting until the HD 78** cards come out and will upgrade to them
