The first build that was given to me is a old DDR2 build with a old AMD black 3.0ghz processor cooled by a CoolIT eliminator on a Fatal1ty AN9 32x motherboard and powering my graphics were two power hungry GTX 8800 Ultras in SLI. My uncle gave me these parts as a starter build when I told him I was interested in PC gaming.
I had it for about four months before upgrading to this build I have now (parts listed below). My uncle was proud that I took what I learned and made my own computer,When i showed him the work i did and that I carried over the old 8800 ultras he gave me a GTX 480 to help me save some money. Unfortunately my uncle passed away shortly after I completed the build on July, 24,2014. This build is in Memory of him and to show him I not only know how to build a PC but maintain one to, He taught me everything i know about PCs.
Oh and the last pics are of the computers he built, hopefully i can water cool one day :)
Theres a SSD I bought from my new job at best buy and we had a great deal on the 250GB i couldn't pass it up. Its a 256 samsung 840 evo
Thank you guys SO SO SO much for all the likes and the condolences, it warms my heart to be welcomed to a forum like this :). I will keep you guys posted on new things about this build as I upgrade it :)
Update 12/26/14: I just upgraded to an i7-4790k for $134.09 shipped from a best buy deal though Intel retail edge.
Update 2/17/15*: Just put in the GTX 980 sc by EVGA and I went to my uncles and found an unused EVGA 1300w power supply, asked my aunt if she let me take it and she said yes. I also put in custom cables and took the top fans on my corsair h100i away, works just as well without them on. I also moved the front fans to the outside of the case, the cover still fits over them.
Prices are not accurate as I have most of my uncles stuff in my build, My aunt was going to throw it all away. i have spent a total of roughly 1,000
