Description

Built this for gaming and programming work. Also do some light video editing on it as well.

Specifically: I built this to run BF3 on Ultra at 60fps. I Originally started off with a Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC, which was a powerful card, but did not perform up to par. After getting two GeForce GTX 670's with a bonus check from work, it performs exactly like I want even when recording my gameplay.

Also have a second monitor (pictured) which is an Acer H233H, which its no longer made.

**When I first started this build back in Spring last year it was a $1000 budget build. I've just been adding on to it.

From the early reports, Im not too excited about Haswell. Seems like the focus was on improved integreted graphics and lower power consumption (directed at laptop users). Very small actual speed increase, which is what matter most to desktop users. May have to wait until the second gen Haswell to get any noticeable differences.

Aye, heard the same. Will see when it comes out, though. even if I have to wait for second gen, don't mind that much.

Honestly, wait another year or two before you upgrade your cpu and chipset. Sandy/Ivy Bridge are solid and will be here for years to come. Wait until the next tick in Intel's roadmap (Skylake).

Does the Bitfenix case fan fit well in your case? I've been thinking about replacing my HAF 912 with this case, and then replace the fans with BitFenix Spectre Pros.
