Description

For this build it was a go big or go home type of thing for me because i game a lot along with using a lot of software for class like, autodesk inventor, sony vegas, photoshop.. etc. The only issue i had (that i didn't know of till later) was that my X60 does not fit on my case (NZXT Phantom Full Tower) so i had to ghetto rig it and it ended up working perfectly fine. Feel free to give me some feed back on my build, Thanks!

(I posted this build a while back on here without some of the things that i have no so this is a updated build)

my only problem was the psu....why 1200w? 850 wouldve been enough even if you choose to sli later.

"Places 1-2k worth of parts on carpet, no big deal" - This guy

1200W PSU is really overkill, bad reviews on the powersupply

May i get a link to this ? because all the reviews i have read on newegg they have been positive and none of them said it would fail.

If you looked at the reviews on newegg almost half of the reviews are only one egg. I wouldn't want a psu under 4 eggs anyway. Still, like the build otherwise and the case is a nice change from the white. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817116022&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

Kinda scary putting all those parts on the carpet. I would've been scared of esd. Especially with those bare ram sticks and gpu lying on the carpet.

Holy hell. You put a $700 gpu on the carpet pcb down.

This might seem like an odd question, but how long were you saving up for this? I turned 16 in December, and I've been trying to get a job, but I want to get an idea of how long I'll be saving for my new rig.

Depends on your income and how you spend your money.

Most likely minimum wage, $7.50/h. I won't be able to work more than 28 hours a week due to my state's child labor law. Other than gas and a 2-3 games later this year, I intend on saving every penny towards a new computer.

So if you work for 28 hours a week solid and you save every penny you should be able to get the computer in 5 months or so..

"go big or go home" - then adds only 16gb of ram and a 120gb SSD if you content create that much, you can justify the extreame cpu and mobo then you would benifit from more ram

Yeah for some reason it doesn't run at 1866 ? when i look at programs it says its lower so i don't know what i did wrong ?

went a little overboard on the pictures, also your cable management could really use some touching up. cool looking case though.

Yeah it was my first build so i had to capture every moment i had aha but if you look towards the end of my pictures you can see that i cleaned it up a little.

You would've been fine with an 850w, even for a second GPU and a healthy overclock on the CPU and GPUs.

i wish i had that money when i was in high school nice build btw

great pics, decent part choice, and pretty good looking, the cable management could be better, wtf is up with those periphiels, hopefully youll be getting the death adder and a mechanical keyboard, and that power supply is total overkill and is prone to failure, pls return it, even if you were to sli in the future 800 would be plenty. If you really want that much wattage, at least get a better psu. Some of your parts are a little unnecessary, but if you want to spend the extra money then go for it. You could have also just gotten 2 1TB hard drives for the price of your's, with a less failure rate, but the two should still be fine, the monitor is okay.

Ya the PSU is overkill and isn't the best. And you have no idea how lucky you are that all your parts didnt short circuit from your carpet. Build would be better if you had better cable management :p but nice build and congrats.
