This has been a machine I have had for a few years and have been upgrading slowly. I built it as a class project my Junior year and was my first computer build. Still upgrading it too! What would you have done differently, and what did you like about the build?

(Will be adding pictures and component reviews)

Part Reviews


My computer boots up like a charm now, extremely fast and reliable. It is a bit pricy though and will be better once the costs go down.

Video Card

A great graphics card especially for SLI for the price, you could also get the 980 but where is the fun in that? Other than the great look of having the SLI Bridge and the two cards, the functionality is great for the current graphics out there.


Absolutely love this case, its a simple design yet effective. This case makes cord management a whole lot easier. There are plenty of bays for your storage, and the simple fan control on the top of the case.

Power Supply

I have had this power supply for years now and It's still going strong. I have also been upgrading my computer without worry of any issues with power.

Operating System

This is definitely a step up from windows 8.

Sound Card

This is definitely a good card, I have used it in my build for a while. I definitely don't need it anymore because of my motherboard and or my Sound Blaster Zx

Sound Card

This is a great sound card, I love the option to use the beamforming mic. and headphone control. This card can also be used for other devices too, I am using my ps4 optical out to the optical in on this card for sound and it sounds amazing! Strong recommendation to use this if you want good sound quality.

I never got around to removing it, I currently only have the Creative Labs Sound Blaster Zx 24-bit 192 KHz.

How do you find the Rosewill CPU cooler?

Neat build, looks snazzy in that case.
