Christmas Present for my Girlfriend

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, I just thought that I would show you the PC I built for my girlfriend as a gift for Christmas/her birthday.

Specs:
Motherboard: Foxconn A88GA-S
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE
GPU: BFG GTX 260
Case: NZXT S340
Cooler:Cooler Master Hyper 212+
PSU:Corsair CX 600
RAM:8 GB G.Skill Sniper series 1866 Mhz\
HDD: Western Digital Blue 120GB 2.5
Audio:Logitech Z313 2.1 Speaker system, Triton AX720 headset
Mouse: Roccat Lua
Keyboard: Microsoft Sidewinder X4
Monitor: HP 2011x
They may not be the highest specs, but any game she would be interested in would definitely run.

So an overview of the build process; this was probably the easiest build I've done in a long time. Thanks to the S340; I mean NZXT made a STELLAR case. The cable management is beyond easy, I looks good, feels great and above all else, is roomy. I have massive hands (21 CM from the base of my hand to the tip of my middle finger), and I felt like I was working in a cave. It also has ample airflow, I installed 3 140mm fans in her computer, as well as a 120 in the back So big props to NZXT for making a great budget case. The process was really simple. You guys know how it goes; insert CPU, mount cooler, install PSU, mount motherboard, install GPU, plug in cables, tidy up. Tidy up typically takes the longest time for me, however due to the case being as easy to work with as it was, It took no time at all. I had the system up and ready within 25-35 minutes

Here are some pictures of the build:




Since this is an early christmas present I expect to be spending more on it later in the year. Haha. Let me know what you guys think, I love to hear any criticisms.
