Thread Starter 
Alright guys. I've been working on getting parts for this system for a while now, and it is nearing completion. I thought I would post up the build log as it happens. First, the parts list.

Parts I own:

Asus DirectCU II 7770 (2gb)
Corsair Force GT 120gb
Logitech G19

My goal right now is to get a system running, and upgrade it later.
These upgrades will be:
AMD PileDriver CPU
3 x Corsair Force GT120gb (For a total of 4, in raid 0)
2 x Western Digital 2tb Green drives (Raid 1, for redundancy)
Corsair AX1200i

Whoops. I forgot to say that I plan to upgrade to the next gen AMD CPU (PileDriver) when they come out. I will be getting the top of the line in that series. That's why I got the cheapest CPU now (FX-4100). I won't have a use for it later on, so I would rather waste $100 than $250.

It will be plenty, especially with 1 monitor playing at 1080.

Actually, I will be running multiple monitors. I just didn't list that out in the OP. However, this will be on the next gen PileDriver CPU. I will get the highest edition of that chip when ti comes out. It should handle it just fine.

Look what the UPS man dragged in.... And by dragged, I literally mean dragged. It looks like this box went through hell to get here.

I ordered my Logitech G19 from Amazon.com. I ordered it on the 18th. I got 5-8 day free shipping. It is estimated to be here on the 19th. Aah, the joys of living in Arizona (Amazon is also in Arizona).

I also ordered my Corsair Force GT, and Asus monitor from Newegg on the 18th. They should be here the 20th. I payed for 3-5 day shipping.

I have never had this much luck with UPS before... Is this like them trying to make up for it or something? Because it's working.
