So I'm sure you may have done it before in the past where you slowly piece together an awesome beast over time. Finally finshed it. Then came the Air Force so I sold off the machine and got a nice higher-end laptop. Mistake. So I sold it and decided "in time" I'll get another machine. Well I work computers still now and everyone started to pressure me into building another for gaming and such. SO I started doing what I did before by buying deal components offline one by one, returning a few. The end result is as follows:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz ---$89
MSI 990FXA-GD80V2 ---$149
MSI R7870 HAWK Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 ---$239

Seagate 2TB Internal Hard Drive ---$19
