Description

She's like a shark, but she looks like a fish. I do a good bit a gaming and this build hasn't skipped beat. The 8320 does well with Premiere along with my OCZ 460. The prices are all the original prices for the parts that I picked up along the way. This slice of time has been my favorite landmark in my constantly-upgrading PC. What should I upgrade next?

Part Reviews

CPU

This thing has been through hell. Overclocking and multitasking champ. Doesn't even break a sweat, even with new games.

CPU Cooler

Quiet, cheap, good performance. What more could you want?

Motherboard

Extremely stable, lots of good features. I really like the UEFI design and how well it integrates with their software you can download to mess with it within windows. I think from now on, ASUS is my goto motherboard manufacturer. Overclocking beast!

Memory

Can't complain at the price I paid. I even have them running stable @ 2200 at stock voltage. They are amazing!

Storage

Build quality feels great (if that matters). Toshiba makes some good drives. Decent speeds.

Video Card

Oh boy. This thing plows through games like a champ. I love how many filters I can fit into that 4gb. I've had this card for about a year now. I really have no real qualms.

Power Supply

A bit loud when under load, but still solid. Cables are well-thought-out lengths. Haven't had any real problems with it.

Keyboard

I love blue switches and the ergonomics of this keyboard. I don't like how they went glossy with the finish. The key caps are also a bit thin and give the board a "cheaper" sound.

Mouse

What a champ. $20 and i've put this thing through hell. Sensor tracks like a dream. It's a wonder why they stopped making them.

Headphones

I love the detailed highs and tight lows. The mids are pretty good too. I wish I waited and bought them with the new pads. The earpads on mine are pretty meh. My friends have the new ones, and those are nice!

I actually just acquired 2 h220's with broken pumps. I just need to buy a new watercooling pump when I get some extra dough. Good idea
