First of all, someone was smart enough to place and eventually spill water on my case, frying all my components. -.- With some family money, savings and the money from my sold 810 (In hopes for a better build, and I didnt like the look of it in my room anyways. It was black and my room is white lol.) im hoping for a new, good rig that hopefully wont get fried. Again.
