Great looking build. Really like the case.
Super nice build!
Great looking build.
Interesting idea but yea just not enough space for the money spent. I am planing on going with this: http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00T76ZGDO/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=7J92Y4METAR6&coliid=I1254EN1GEZ7G2
And just putting a 2TB laptop hard drive in it.
Very nice looking build.
Great looking build and really good pictures!
Also did like that case. Nice build +1
Very nice and clean looking build.
Great looking build!
No what he was saying was that to get to 8gb you should have gotten 2x4 instead of a single 8gb stick. But since you have an 8bg stick now just get another 8gb stick so you can take advantage of the dual channel.
Very nice build!
That looks amazing, great job on everything.
I really do love that case, also nice build.
Very nice looking build!
Great looking PC and room.

I really do like what you did with the case also great build.
Very nice build.
Very nice build and great drawings!
So older programs/games may have problems but there is always compatibility mode to try. And if it is an option you can always dual boot. Just start looking up online if there are any program/games you may have questions about.
Yea no problems with games, only some real old games will not run without some messing around with. Steam and the like run just fine also you get access to games in the Windows store not many of note but still an option.
I have been running Win 8 for a few months now and I like it. As long as you install something like Start is back! you get a relly good and fast experince. So I would recommend Win 8.
Nice builds. What kind of games will you be making?
Very nice build.
Nice Build. And I love that case it's the one I got for my build just the Silver version, and it's a very good roomy case. The rest of the parts are good too. And yea a 840 series is the way to go in my opinion, go for the Pro version if you can swing it. It's what I got and love it.
For all those drives it's a very good job with the cable management.
Haswell? is the new architecture that will power the next Intel processors. It will over time replace Ivy Bridge like it replaced Sandy Bridge. It's main advantage will be power savings but it will require a new socket(1150 for Haswell vs. 1155 for the most current Intel processors). But it is not a really big deal just something you might want to look at if you don't need the computer in the next month or something. But you the Ivy Bridge processors are really good.
And as for the motherboard it just has some features you might want to look at I think the Asrock boards are pretty solid and you can't really go wrong with the two you picked. But I just kinda like the Gigabyte boards better.
Yea I would say wait till the end of the month to see what they are doing with the rest of the 700 series. At the least you might be able to get some deals on 600 series cards.
I would recommend the Gigabyte Intel Z77 Dual Thunderbolt ATX Motherboard with BT4.0/Wi-Fi-GA-Z77X-UP5-TH
It is a higher end verision of the board I have in my build and has fertures like Thunderbolt and wi-fi. And Both Gigabyte and Asus make really great boards.
Also if you are not building right away you could hold out for Haswell and get some power savings :).
I don't know about having to wait for Haswell, but I do agree you should wait to see what the rest of the 700 series will have to offer it should just be the end of this month so not long now. And if the 780 is any indication it could be some pretty good cards in the new line.
Very nice job on your cable management, very clean looking.
Great job on the cable management!
I have the Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB and really love it. I would say go with the Pro 128gb and just get something like 2 or 3TB drive for storage.
Here is the one I used in my build I have the same case and had the same problem.
2.Depends on the size of the drive. If you get a smaller drive no real need to partition it. But over provisioning can help with the life of the drive so it is something you might want to do even on smaller drives.
3.No damage to the drive but you do have format the dirve so you will lose all data on it.
Most likely yes it is always better to start fresh with a new motherboard, it just makes sure the drivers and such don't get messed up.
If you are getting a drive that comes with software you that but other wise the windows formatting tools are fine.
And depending on the drive some come with software that will help you with these settings, but windows does do most right especially if you are used something newer like Windows 8. Also the drives manufacturer website can be helpful.
Hope this helped.
I would get the Intel core i5 3570k is the best bang for your buck for gaming on the INtel platform, as long as it's in your budget. You can always put a little over clock on it too.
Nice Build and love those Fractal Design cases.
Really nice Build. Great job on the water cooling setup also really like that Asus monitor.
Nice build and great job with the pictures. Also I have not seen many people run a dedicated PhysX card that's kinda cool.
Nice build and great cable management!
Very nice update!
Yea I like him, he's funny and his videos are well produced.
