Hello

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'm a 22 year old student currently studying Computer Engineering at Old Dominion University, and am scheduled to graduate spring 2012. I decided to join OCN as soon I will be building my first completely custom desktop. Only 3 things are being salvaged from my old computer, the sound card, the monitor, and the speakers. Just wanted to post this to put my name out there and see what everyone thinks of my new computers specs.

Welcome! That setup should be inexpensive and serve you well. We could maybe suggest changes if you'll let us know what you're using the computer for, whether you're planning to overclock, what your budget is, etc.

Welcome to OCN!

Your sig rig looks good as it is. Not exactly sure how much power you need for your work, but if you haven't overclocked your 950 yet you should try.

The rig is going to be used primarily for school work (a lot of programming) and gaming. Probably going to get a second video card in a couple months.
