OKay folks lets help him out on his build in reality. Turning someones build thread into a joke isn't cool. Espically for a new member.

FAIL!!!


The build looks great man! Do you got plans for SLI?


Thers no doubt you got a great case, but im not a fan of it's looks, and im real anal when it comes to aesthetics but if you like it, i wont sway you from it.

Also, you might wanna consider a bigger HDD, just so you wont be like OH SHI- when the 500GB fills, but that wont be for a while :P

yeah I'm gonna get a 2nd seagate when I pick my parts up also considering a yate loons fan pack NCIX.com - Buy Yate Loon Value Bundle Deal - Includes 5 Sleeved D12SL-12 Fans 1350RPM 47CFM 28DB W/ Mounting Screws - D12SL-12-VALUE-PACK In Canada.
maybe SLI in my future will that PSU be sufficient for 2x 580s a

PS: the two fellas suggesting the 240s are my friends
