I've always wanted a gaming PC and thanks to the guys over at r/buildapc and teksynicate.com I built this up. I mainly play World of Tanks with it and get roughly 50+ fps depending on what mods I'm using. I bought most of these parts used and i do plan on adding the capture card later just not sure if I really need one. I know I also need to work on cable management but it seems to work okay for what my case gives me room for. Also it seems that my case had a 'cyperpowerpc' in it at one point if that guts I removed are from that then I hope no one ever chooses to buy from them.
CPU: I originally was going to go with the 760k when they announced the 860k. I'm very happy with this CPU's performance I have it at a health 4.5 GHz OC with 1.45 volts according to CPUz http://valid.canardpc.com/25z6hj. I also considered the G3258 but I figured it was easier to just buy my quad core to start with and I prefer AMD over Intel.
Cooler: This was purely aesthetics as I liked the way the cooler looked and was going for a black and blue build. Though it does do a great job. It came with a fan with white LED's but I found it to be really buzzy and loud so I switched it out for the Deepcools and they are really quiet.
Mobo: This was a used purchase I bought it because it seemed to have the perfect balance of features that I wanted with the color scheme I wanted. I wish I had stepped up to to G45 version so I would have had some Voltage control but all the way around I'm actually really happy. I also had to do a bios update to get the 860k to work but that was a cheap fix.
RAM: These were a used Ebay buy as well and are running at 2133. Fits my color scheme and I've had no issues with them.
Storage: The Mx100 was a splurge buy that I'm so happy with I've never realized how long my boot times were. The WD's greens are pure storage with the 500 gb being reused from a 100 dollar 'gaming pc' I bought at a local pawn shop.
GPU: This was supposed to be a HIS HD 7770 GHz edition however I forgot to hook up the 6 pin power to it and now it won't boot in any system. This became an upgrade to a Powercolor AX 7850 that I've gotten OC's up to 1050/1400 and stable on Heaven. Hence the name.
Case: MY BIGGEST REGRET IS THIS TURD. I really hate this case and plan on upgrading as soon as I can.
PSU: I bought off Ebay from a reseller appears to be brand new and has no issues.
OS: My wife hooked me up with this from her Computer typing class at college. The teacher has dreamspark access and she told him I was building a new PC.
Fans: The case had poor Apevia fans that were Molex powered and loud these new Deepcools are quiet and move plenty of air lovem.
Figured I's toss my Firestrike score on here as well. http://www.3dmark.com/fs/3253198
