Default Finally finished the build....you thoughts?

Well, after a couple of hours toiling in the workshop i built my pc. It rocks, windows scores 7.9 across the board, except the CPU @7.8. I have the CPU OC'd to 4.4Ghz, stable....i have no idea why its not a 7.9 CPU score. Oh well. H70 keeping my CPU below 40deg Celsius. So happy with the result, no problems during build or OC

It looks bad ass. I'm jealous of your 680. I'm hoping they will be easier to find soon. I don't have a graphics card yet, so my Windows score is 6.4 in graphics and gaming lol. Lousy integrated graphics!

The 680 is worth the wait imho. playing skyrim on ultra @ 1920x1200, super smooth looks amazing.

Whoever said a SSD is not worth the money, is flat wrong. Even if just for the OS, it makes things scream and totally silent.

Thanks for kind words

I finished my build two months ago, and I've been rockin' HD 3000 until new gpu's come out. I think the SSD is the best part of the build! Not including the motherboard POST, Windows boots in about 15 seconds. The 180gb ssd would have been nice. I bought a 120gb and I have 45gb left, after OS and several games. Next time I'll get 240gb minimum for sure.

Do you play anything else besides Skyrim?
