Well this was my first time building a computer in quite a while, had a lot of trouble installing the water cooler, but besides that everything went well.
Most of the items I picked were based on heavy reading and reviews. I wanted this build to last me a while and maintain a respectable FPS, I'm very happy so far it plays everything I want it in max settings. =)
Oh and I got most if this items on special, I paid way less then the price that was computed here.
