Everything listed for $0 were gifts so I thought I'd only include what I spent myself on it. total comes in around $1,100.

had a lot of fun and a lot of frustration but got it all together and working. The video card is amazing, I thought anything over would be slightly overkill for single monitor 1080p gaming.

the 7950 handles anything I've played on ultra with at least 60 FPS, usually 70-80. (Assassin's Creed 3, Crysis 2, Batman Arkham City and Asylum, Skyrim, et cetera) and I haven't overclocked it yet.

The build is fairly silent, the loudest part is the H100i fans which are barely audible at idle. I'm thinking about switching them for some quieter fans. The GPU can get pretty loud at higher fan speeds (50%+) but I've set a profile so it never reaches that percentage. It still stays around 60-70 at full load after a few hours of gaming with 40% fan speed which is awesome. The stock case fans and the AF120 Quiet's cant be heard at all unless you put your head right up next to the 200mm fan on the side or the two 120mm on the front.

If you are wondering which fans to replace your stock h100i fans, a lot of people seem to like the quiet edition of the SP 120s

+1 for a great well balanced build

Whoever gave you a Corsair 750W PSU, an HDD, and a Corsair 500R, has a lot of money to burn - wish had a lot of money to burn, nice build, +2 if I could ;)

Nice Build. I know how well the 3570K and 7950 worked ( I had one , which I killed by mistake ) The 4670K will just be more better. 840 EVO is pretty good for the money. So is the H100i and G.Skill RAM. So +1

The EVO was definitely a good choice in all except that it won't last more than 10-12 years since it is build so cheap vs Samsung's faster and longer lasting (although more expensive) 840 Pro.

? I doubt we will even still be using SATA in 10 years, much less be using the same 120gb SSD.

KodyWB 1 point 46 months ago

Heh, good point. We're already expecting DDR4 in the next year or so. But you guys have to consider that if you're going to buy a storage device it should be able to last more than 10 years so you can use it for small builds or sell it. I don't see why someone disliked my comment cause it's the truth and seems logical.

ImElkay 1 Build 1 point 46 months ago

That may be true, but most people do not care in slightest if it is going to last 10 years, or 100 years. It's is not going to matter, but I understand your argument.

KodyWB 1 point 46 months ago

Resale value, resale value. Down the road it's nice to know you can sell it too, even if technology spikes as much as we hope/expect.

I doubt most people will still be using it in 5 years.

OCedPug 2 Builds 3 points 46 months ago

I doubt OP will be using it for more than 3 yrs.
