There is a meaning behind the name but im not gonna bother explaining it for now smile.gif. This is my first gaming pc that i built. It took about 2 days to build including proper cable management for maximum cooling performance. Im looking for maximum hardware stability so i will be going through a variety of stress tests for a 1 week time period.

Case: Corsair Carbide 400r http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V Pro http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131819
PSU: Antec HCG-750 750W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371049
CPU: i5-3570k @ 3.4ghz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504
Heatsink: Currently using stock heatsink
RAM: 8 Gigs of corsair vengeance LP http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233389
GPU: PNY GTX660ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133467
SSD: Samsung 830 128GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147137
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Keyboard: Steelseries 6gv2
Mouse: Logitech MX518
Monitors 21"5 Lg and 24" HP

Total cost of setup(estimate): $1800

Once I know the pc is 100% stable, I am planning on adding 2 more case fans for a total of 5 fans. I might also overclock later so i would get an aftermarket heatsink(preferably the hyper212 EVO) if i go that route. I am also planning on changing my mouse maybe within the next 2 months. Still unsure of the longterm plan for the gpu. Im deciding whether or not to add a second gtx660ti or just replace the card with something better but either way, i wont be touching the gpu for at least a year or two.

I know a lot of people that ask me why i went with PNY for the video card when i should have went with something like MSI or EVGA. Its not that i distrust those 2 companies but i have had a lot of good experience with PNY and so far they have not let me down so until they do, im sticking with them.
