The computer originally was purchased on May 17, 2010, it was originally a Gateway DX4300-15e.

Upgrades and Overclocks:

On June 16, an ATI Radeon HD5550 Was purchased

On July 29, an ATI Radeon HD5670 was purchased to replace the HD5550.

On Septemper 29, an Ultra LSP550 550-Watt Power Supply/ATX/SLI-Ready was purchased.

On November 17, an ATI Radeon HD5770 and AMD Athlon II X4 635 @ 2.9GHz was purchased. On the same day that it was installed the HD5770 gave me the BSoD (Blue Screen)

On November 18, the ATI Radeon HD5770 was returned to Tiger Direct.

On November 19, another ATI Radeon HD5770 was purchased from Tiger Direct. The 5770 was installed and again gave the blue screen of death.

On November 20, The 5770 was exchanged for a EVGA Geforce GTS450 1GB Superclocked Edition. After the GTS450 was purchased I discovered that the reason why the HD5770's would'nt work was because of the Drivers.

On December 9, A Danger Den Torture Rack Acrylic Case was purchased.

On December 10, The OEM Motherboard was replaced with a ASUS M3A78-EM Micro ATX AM2+ AMD 780G Motherboard.

On January 21, The GTS 450 was Overclocked to a stable clock of 1009MHz Core Clock 4501MHz Memory clock and 2280MHz Shader Clock and 2280MHz Memory Bus.

Mistakes Made:
No one is perfect. I had made some very n00b mistakes in the past because I was not very well at the time with computers.

On June 2, an PNY Nvidia Geforce 9800GTX+ 512mb was purchased, the 9800GTX+ Required an Power Supply watt power of At Least 500Watts. The Computer's power supply at the time was 300Watts. The 9800GTX+ was returned.
