First Build Tags: New Build Systems Last response: March 4, 2013 12:22 AM in Systems Share jkim3464 March 3, 2013 5:13:30 PM Hey guys, I'm new here. I've been lurking around for sometime and decided to finally come aboard. Here's my first build, let me know what you guys think. Thanks! I ended up paying little under $1000 for everything plus a monitor. I got the video card for $290, so that helped a bunch. I've also overclocked it to 4.4ghz @ 1.21 volts, haven't had any instability when testing with Prime95.

Would have been better to get an Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic. The SSD is a bit old. Its a very solid build. I like it.

I researched for a bit before making the final decision. Some of the stuff is refurb or used, but they are just as good as new.
