Finally, my dream machine.

post #1 of 197
Thread Starter 
So it begins!

I can't begin to express my excitement here! I'm about to build the machine I've always wanted to build for myself and the parts started to arrive yesterday.

The brass tax:

CPU: Intel Core i7 3970x
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
GPU: EVGA Nvidia GTX 680 (Two of them)
SSD: Intel 520 240gb x2
RAM: 32 GB 1866 Mushkin Enhanced Redline
PSU: EVGA Supernova NEX1500
Monitor: DELL U3011 30"
Sound Card: ASUS Xonar Essence ST
Speakers: Corsair SP2500 2.1
Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013
Mouse: Razer Naga 2012

That's the bulk of it with a few other odds and ends (New router, NIC, etc).

The goods started arriving yesterday with the remainder slated to arrive on Monday.

Pics or it's not happening? tongue.gif

This is all I have for now.

Yes, I plan on folding. Team suggestions? tongue.gif

I've always wanted to post a build log. This will be fun!

More to come!
Pew pew pew!

Truth be told, it's excessive, but i don't care.

The machine is mostly being built for Folding and recreation. I've never done anything like this for myself and it's a celebration gift of sorts. Yay for promotions at work!
