Greetings! I thought it would be fun to document my first custom build. I won't be doing anything too crazy...just want a clean and decent rig in the end. Already have the case (Lancool PC-K62) and PSU (OCZ Modstream PRO...will replace with better Corsair in a few months). Currently have the guts of a two year old HP until I can order everything else below.
Here are the components I'm considering for the rest of the build:
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H
CPU: Phenom II X6 1090T BE
GPU: 2x SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770
Memory: G.SKILL 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz
HDD: WD 640GB/750GB (already have this one) Caviar Black
My budget doesn't allow for certain upgrades like an SSD but I will go as far as I can with what I got. I will be asking around in the forums about my plans for more advice before I finally place the order next weekend. Until then here's a dark pic of the front of the case. I spent some time with cable management as practice but probably won't upload any pics unless someone asks. Will update once I've placed the order!
