First Build, First Build Log.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I have always been plagued by low end graphics cards in my computers and finally decided to build my own. After years of playing games on sub par settings or not at all, I will finally have my way with them. I have already received the case, cpu cooler, and keyboard. The rest of the build shows up tomorrow.

My specs:
Case: Fractal Design Define R3
Processor: i5 2500k
CPU Cooler: CM Hyper 212 plus
RAM: 8gb RipJaws X 1600
MOBO: AsRock P67 Extreme4
GPU: Two MSI 6950's in crossfire
SSD: 120gb OCZ Vertex 3
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3
PSU: Corsair 750HX
Extra Case Fans: 3 x Scythe "ULTRA KAZE"
DVD Drive: ASUS

I purchased the parts last thursday and on my newegg high the next day, I impulse bought the extra case fans and my new keyboard, the Razer Black Widow Ultimate. I got the keyboard in today and I am very please with it. I use to scoff at Razer products but this product has really changed my view of them.

I'm open to any questions or game recommendations to play on my new rig.

I'll post up some pictures tomorrow.

Why not buy HD6990 and then add another one in the future. Just thinking!
