post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Just built a new pc for the first time in 10 years! Have been surviving off supermarket laptops and finally got the go ahead to get some better hardware. Signed up here to read all the advice on watercooling, overclocking etc.

Basic specs: Corsair Carbide Air 540, MSI 990FXA-GD65, AMD FX-8320, 24GB DDR3, 128Gb OZ SSD, 500GB+500GB SATA, HD7750 2GB

Currently running dual monitors in Eyefinity but keeping eyes peeled for a three monitor bargain on eBay (although the IPS screens do look nice biggrin.gif )

So yeah, anyone recommend a good starter game?
