So my case just arrived. and I bought my 3770k the other day. My case is a Corsair Vengeance C70 White. I'm also getting an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA1155, An EVGA GTX 670, 16gb RAM, A 750W modular psu, a 750gb hdd.. etc. I'll post pictures and updates as I get parts and start building.
I'll update when everything else gets here, all of it should be here today with any luck (they got sent from lexington kentucky early this morning and I live in paint lick kentucky, it's been about 8 hours).
I might post a video of the build as well. can't wait! will update then
Ok so. I got it built! after many hours of painstaking work. I'll post pics tmrw. I need helpt tho. i'm installing ubuntu temporarily just long. I got ubuntu dl'd and my usb flash drive plugged in (on a diff desktop ofc). what do I do from here? I got it to boot so everything is working. all the fans are spinning and it booted into bios. I tried just putting the straight up download onto the flash drive and booting from that but I get a message that says something like " Blah blah blah please select boot device or put in boot device reboot and press any key blah" any help?
GOT IT ALL DONE Guess ya'll deserver some pics, huh. well here's 3, I'll take more tomorrow and screencaps of Borderlands 2 benchmarks (only game i have on there atm, came with my 670) when i get windows 7 running and drivers installed. no internet atm. So still typing this on crappy old laptop. just after a couple minutes of derping around in linux I already can't stand using this thing. so excited. here's pics:
