My System Specs

Default Project: Havok

Well I took the plunge and ordered the parts tonight. Total came to around $2700 CAD, WOW first and most expensive computer:) Anyway NCIX is building it for me that way my dad won't worry about it not working. So here is the full parts list:

Evga 760 Classified Motherboard
Intel Core i7 920 D0 Processor
Mushkin PC12800 DDR3 1600 6-7-6-21 Ram 6 GB
XFX Radeon 5870 1GB Graphics Card
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB HDD
Corsair HX1000 PSU
TRue Black wth- 2 Scythe Slip Stream Kaze 1600 RPM Fans Push/Pull
Corsair 800d Case :D-May be huge but damn does it look nice
Asus VW256h Monitor
Logitech G15 Keyboard
Crappy Dell mouse I already have till the g500 is in stock.

And thats it! Will Update later though it will probobly take 2 weeks to get here as I have to wait for a 5870 to be in stock, then they have to build it and finally ship. Can't Wait!

UPDATE*

Was shipped today!!! Three packages totaling 83 pounds. Whew damn thats heavy. One package is 55 which is Computer, then one I guess is monitor and the other 13 is ? All of the boxes and a keyboard?. Don't know why its so heavy but YAY finally shipped I can soon stop using a P4 with a 128mb Graphics card! Now all I need is a mouse...

Quality parts in there!!!! Looks like a great build.

Did you order the XFX specifically? NCIX usually had a decent price on vid cards for builds, but you don't get to pick what brand.

The funny thing is, I think I saw your box of parts. I was in NCIX today with my Classified and new D0 that wouldn't post (D0 was DOA :) and Jeff was telling me about the new build he was going to get to do. When he brought me in the back to show me that my replacement 920 would post, I saw all your goodies. Small world.

sswilson, yes I would like XFX even if I have to wait longer simply because of their awesome warranty. I could have gotten a sapphire for a bit cheaper but it only has a year warranty.

And doubtful, I just ordered the parts less than an hour ago, Must be some elses build.

Someone else with good taste, I guess. Same 760 board, HX1000 PSU, Mushkin mem. Jeff was happy he was going to get to play with a Classified. You'll love yours. Drooling at mine on my test bench as we speak.

Don't wanna send back but I did get zero dead pixel guarentee so I will:( hopefully the actually computer is delivered soon.

Problems problems problems... HD didn't seem to want to boot at all but I ended up being able to install windows 7 yet I still have a problem that it cannot find drives for sum reason then boots. Also temps have been shitty CPU idle at stock was in the 40s now in the 50s at 3.3 at idle. Going to investigate more tomorrow. Ugh if only there was a decent pc store closer to niagara region so I could buy more fans.

Will post pics tomorrow
