This is my second build. My first build was:
AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.0GHz; Asus Crosshair AM2; Corsair 8 GB RAM; W/D 250 GB; NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX SLI; Antec 900.
For this build I had a few rules. No lights, silent, small, reasonably affordable and aesthetically pleasing.
11/30: 250gb SSD; 12/1: CPU, Case, Thermal Paste; 12/4: Case Fans; 12/8: Mobo, RAM, PSU, CPU Fan; 12/11: 128gb SSD; 12/30: GPU; 1/3: RAM; 3/28: 250gb SSD.
1/5: Coil whine on the GPU. Fixed FPS to prevent noise.
1/20: Games are running at max and temperatures remain stable during long sessions.
