New i7 build w/ pics

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Just got some goodies delivered to me today, so I thought I'd share with you all.

Moments after the UPS delivery


Got the 1200 a bit earlier from FedEx


View of all the stuff that came today out of their boxes
Not shown: Thermalright TRUE 120 and Logitech Z-5500 speakers


Closeup without the 1200


Can't forget about the 1200


Unfortunately, I can't start putting everything together until Friday because that's when me TRUE will come. Gonna probably be the longest two days of my life.

Nice! Gonna be an awesome built.

Curious though, why the 1k watt power supply when you have one GTX 275? Did you plan on getting a second later?

No matter what, you've definitely got enough power, lol.

Yep, in fact I'm contemplating buying one now so it can arrive by Friday (with one day shipping).

I guess I could try. Seems like it would be a hassle to take it off two days later though. I won't lie though, I'm very tempted. Maybe I'll just put the hard drives and Blu-ray drive in for tonight.

The TRUE is a nice heatsink.

Again, it's for futureproofing. Who knows, I may even get three 275s down the road and that's when I'll really need the PSU.
