[Build Log] Project Dad

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
WAS AN AMD BUILD, Changed to intel
So Dads birthday is coming up and I've decided to build him a system so he can play this thing he's been looking at called iRace(http://www.irace.net.au/) and because of my mind set. I'm building a system so he can Race with 3 monitors(single monitor Racing is terrible.)
His current racing setup. He build his cockpit himself.


Background info on my Father: Qualified Chef and Baker and all round handy man. Currently an R/C repair man at a local shop for both Nitro and Electric. Designed and help build the Mildura RC (M.A.D) Club nitro racetrack.
He devotes most of his time and money to his hobby.(Pics below)




This is not only a build, but it is also a montage to him. Even though I never admit it to him. He has been the biggest influence in mylife.

THE BUILD!
CPU: i5 2400 $200
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard $135
GPU: 2x MSI Radeon HD6850 Cyclone Power Edition OC
RAM: 8GB(2x4GB) Corsair XMS3 1333 $66
PSU: Corsair TX650 $115
DVD/BluRay: LG BH10LS30 10x Blu-ray Disc Writer $96
HDD: 2x1TB WD Green $112
SSD: Maybe..


Mouse: Logitech G9x $119
Keyboard: Logitech G110 $85

Monitors: 3xAcer V223HQBD 21.5in Widescreen LCD Monitor $387

TOTAL $1618
Because I keep a stock pile of parts I've decided to reuse some old parts of my own.


He will be getting my second case: Xigmatech Midgard. SHES A BIT DUSTY needs a clean


And my first non stock cooler: Coolermaster V6. This cooler has preformed greatly and will never be forgotten.


PSU Arrived today!!!

That would be sick attaching a PS3 and a PC onto that racing rig. Gran Turismo and iRacing. If only he had a 360, to play Forza 4, which is btw awesome

Btw, I think I see 3 GPUs on that rack. What are they? And a mobo with a stock cooler on it

I also made a PC for my bro like last week. 560ti, Fractal R3, i7960(old build + x58Sabertooth), Noctua U12, C300. You should try and include a SSD anw, after getting a M4, I just had to include an SSD after seeing how slow my bro's build boots on a WD Black, even though it wasnt me who was using the build.
