New to the site! Hoping to learn some stuff!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok hey guys so my name is Johnny, I'm 23 and I live in Newfoundland, Canada. I'm an everyday gamer, lover of Ninja Turtles and everything DC, and I'm an aspiring chef.

So I joined a few minutes ago because I had a question that needs answering and I couldn't figure it out. I've built 2 computers in my PC gaming lifetime, the 2nd of which I only built 2 months ago. I've always checked the forums around here or have been led here through a Google search looking for answers to questions I've had and I've always noticed that the people here are smart as hell when it comes to anything computer related and it makes me feel like I really don't know all that much at all.

So anyway yeah, basically here to hopefully learn some stuff and get to chat with like minded computer/video game guru's, geeks and nerds or whatever term you'd consider yourself.(I'm not big for labels, especially since I don't consider myself great at any of those yet)

Ok, so yeah. That's me in a nutshell.


Also, I'd love for someone to rate my PC that I just built since I haven't really had any outside opinion from anybody whose knowledgeable about the stuff.

CASE----Cooler Master Haf XB ( It's a cube case )
MOBO--Asus Maximus V Gene Micro ATX
PSU---Corsair 850W Modular Enthusiast Power Supply
GPU--HIS Radeon Ice-Q 7870 2gb Ghz Edition
RAM--G.Skill Trident X Series 16Gb (2400OC)
HDD--Seagate 2TB SATA-II
CPU--Intel i5 3570k 3.4Ghz
Monitor--24" Asus LED 1080p

Other stuff with it
Got 2 120mm CoolerMaster Sickleflow UV Green Fans in the front of the case for looks
LG Blu-Ray Drive
Zalman CNPS 9700 CPU Fan
Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse
Merc Stealth Keyboard


Like I said, I don't consider myself a guru or anything with any of this stuff, which is why I've come here, I just bought what I researched and found worked well and was compatible together. At the same time I figured this would be a great jumping on point especially if I was looking to upgrade to something else 3-4 years down the line.
