PGM100REJB.gif

[Intro]
I'm new to this community but I've been lurking for a while and it's time for me to build a new computer. I'm going to be building it with the color scheme of the Ibanez PGM 100 -- I'm going to call it the PGM 1000 as I will use a Fractal Design Core 1000 for the case.

[Parts list]
Noppoo Choc Mini MX Brown switches (ordered 10/29/12)
Fractal Design Core 1000 (ordered 10/30/12)
550 Paracord in blue and hot pink 50ft ea (ordered 10/29/12)
GIGABYTE GA-Z77MX-D3H Micro ATX
EVGA GeForce GTX 650
Cosair AX750 PSU
Intel Core i7-3770 CPU
Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III SSD x 2
Corsair Vengeance LP 32GB RAM
ASUS VS Series 2ms Monitor

[Planned mods]
Colored keycaps for Choc mini in hot pink and blue
Sleeve all cables with hot pink and blue paracord
Mod Core 1000 case with F-hole on side panel
Rit dye fans in hot pink

Anticipated finish date: Jan 11 2013

Any other ideas or suggestions? I'll post pictures as the items arrive.

Core 1000 arrived!



Case wires (power sw, led, hdd, restart..) sleeved up and ready to go


I'm going to cut the F-holes on the case side panel sometime soon.

looking forward to see the build. just curious though why such a high powered system but a GTX 650? seems like such a waste of raw horsepower in the cpu to not also have a rocking gpu, are you gonna upgrade once done with the build? anyway subbed thumb.gif
