Info : Received all parts except for optical drives and the motherboard for the main unit. Expecting motherboard to be dropped to my location within the week. Optical drives will be in tomorrow.
Alright, enough fun stuff, time for seriousness. My name is Thomas, and just over three weeks ago my house burnt down in an amazing inferno that survived hours of being drowned in icy, cold water in below freezing weather. The worst part? I lost my 4 figure computer that I had build out of a ****** refurbished Dell Optiplex 760. This is my story four days into getting pieces and parts. This will be updated daily, and I plan on finishing this build as soon as that dang board comes in.

Optical drives came in, already installed them on the case.

I called UPS asking for an update on the shipping on my motherboard. I haven't had an update for the mobo's shipping for 60 hours and it supposedly comes in tomorrow.

Sorry for the delay, was on a ski trip while the part was shipping and I finally build the build. I am running it on Ubuntu for the time being until my father get's a copy of windows 8.1 for me, but this build outdoes anything I ever had. Here is some information from the terminal about temps, fan speeds, and some other goodies.

I finally got a GTX 970! :D GTA 5 30 fps at max everything. Can't believe I waited this long!
Very fast, has out done everything i have thrown as of yet.

For the price I would have expected 3.0 headers, but that was a flaw that i hadn't thought of. Will probably upgrade further in the future.
Handles well, I am sure I will buy another 16 GB of the same.
Got it refurbished on amazon very happy with the speed boost from my old 5400 RPM drive.
Nice case, plenty of space.
The cables could have been longer, but other than that, great fully modular supply.
Amazing, fast, cheap.
These monitors are really nice, they came well packaged and protected, came with a VGA, HDMI, DVI, and an AUX cord. My only problem is out of the box, they are different shades of blue. But that is alright. I have them hooked into my laptop both at 1080p and They are a great price for the buy.
This keyboard is mechanical, which I didn't realize, but it is an amazing keyboard. I still need to get used to it, however, but I love the adjustable brightness and I don't have to go into Synapse to adjust it.
The mouse fits my needs of a high DPI laser mouse, great buy, only concern is the fact that you have to go into Synapse to adjust the lights every time and there is no dimming function. Also I had been told each of the four side keys could be configured to another button, but it was more you can have it do the same on the left as it does on the right or a macro or a keyboard key, slight disappointment.
They fit snug around the ears, nice base. IU purchased a USB to 3.5 adapter so I can use these for music as well. :D
