[Build Log] ~~ "Venom" Completed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Welcome to Venom's Build Log!

Since I was a kid I always liked PC gaming, I grew up on it. Old time favorites are MechWarrior, Command&Conquer, Wild Metal Country, Descent, Half Life. Heck, I still remember the two button joysticks and floppy disk larger than Russia. So I decided I wanted to build the ultimate gaming PC for myself so I can get back into PC gaming. I'm also building this baby for programming and game design since that's what I'm majoring in.

I know this build is overkill but it's also my pet project, some people its pimping their car, for me its this PC. This build has started off slow due to the fact I lack a job but I start working next week so I can finally get things in motion. Most of the parts I have now my lovely girlfriend has bought for me and that helps me out a lot since she will continue to help me buy parts.

Oh yeah, as for the name "Venom" I have recently rekindled my flame for Batman after a short while. So I've been Batman crazy with merchandise and comics and thought, "Hey, I'll make this bad boy after Bane seeing how powerful this rig will be!" That's why the green tubes symbolizing the venom, the red motherboard will symbolize his eye color when the mask is on. I do plan to paint this case but not sure of the pattern yet, I was going for old school Bane mask on the side or front but we'll see.

I quickly want to thank quite a few people on here who helped we with parts selection and questions I had over the past...forever! Hope you guys don't mind me shouting out your names:

Now! On to the parts List!

Parts List!

I do plan to make this build last quite a long while. I will post the whole list, what I currently have and whats next on my purchase list. Most items I will get from Newegg. I saw on TV that by the end of the year there will be a law passed for online tax. Tax on computer parts is butt rape so I'm trying to get these parts ASAP.

I am not sure what I did, but I am glad that I could be of help. You might want to consider a used 580 for your VC.
Good luck luck with the build!
