So I decided to get back into the PC gaming world so I just figured I would show off my new build. I was looking into current six core 2011 socket cpus for my build but my father, who kinda runs a part time computer business had a brand new still sealed Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R motherboard so I decided to look around for what was avaliable on it. After shopping on ebay I ran across a Xeon E5645 six core its clocked at 2.4ghz with a 2.6ghz turbo boost and I managed to buy it for $41. I then decided on the cooler master MasterCase 5 Pro chassis. I was going to have to overclock and wanted a better water cooler than air but without having to build a custom loop so I went for the Swiftech H140X Liquid cooler for its custom look and upgrade ability. That enabled my 3.6ghz overclock. The motherboard didnt have a usb 3.0 connection so I bought a USB 3.1/ type C card. Also Purchased an Intel dual band wifi card. I went with the creative labs sound blaster recon3d sound card because of the price i was able to pick it up on ebay "$29" and it gave me the 600ohm head phone amp. Last but not least I went with the Sapphire Radeon R9 Nano. I have wanted this card since i saw it and I know that there is a little better performance for the money but the card looks great in the build and I love the small form factor with the amazing performance. Anyway guys thanks for looking at my build Its not the biggest baddest thing out but its so far been an amazing performer and It was definitely fun building it.
