My System Specs

Default WIP New build gaming and movies/pictures machine

My wife was exceptional and bought me several parts for my new build that I have been itching to do for some time. As well I was able to head out on boxing day on a modest budget and get most of the other components I need to finish my build. I am taking ny time with it and I spent some time in the fall modding a case I liked when I first got it. I painted the interior a flat black and made several adjustments in the motherboard tray for cable management.

My Parts list:

CPU AMD cpu 1090T 3.2GHZ
CPU cooler Corsair A50
RAM Corsair XMS3 TWIN3X 4GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9Kit (2 x 2GB)
Mobo ASUS M4A89GTD PRO 890GX/SB 850
PSU Antec Earthwatts 750w Modular power supply
GPU 2x Radeon 5770 1GB DDR5
1TB Seagate 7200 rpm 32mb cache.

I still need to get a optical drive plus an affordable SSD for the OS.

I will add pics later.

I am almost done a night shift then get home and shovel the drive way and deck.

I am considering doing some work on my build, but depending on how tired I am will determine what I may do. I think maybe some cable tie down and hiding as this is one build I am taking time with and not just rushing through in an afternoon.

My budget for this build is limited and I picked up an IDE DVD RW for $2 but I am not so sure about it. I want a sata drive I don't want any IDE cables making it look crappy on the inside of the case.

I still need to get the side panel fixed, I origianally cut the center of the side panel out to accomidate a water cooling set up but this is no longer the case. I have a large sheet of modders mesh I need to cut and then attach to the side panel, as well I have large fan for the side panel.

In the case I have a fan power board I still need to find a spot to attach it to.

My Hard drive will fit nicely below my card reader so I will have plenty of space to put my light control and fan power board.

I finally had time to assemble my 6 core beast, after over a month I had issues with what turned out to be the video card but thankfully my lovely and thoughtful wife purchased and IPR when she bought it at memory express.

Not unless I turned the mounting bracket on the motherboard around, I have it blowing through and the air out the PSU's fan. At 3.2Ghz its cool at 19c.
