Project///Motivation

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

 

Hello, and welcome to my second build log. This will be my first real one, because Project Revenge wasn't truly a build log. I'm more than happy to say, I'm a new man & motivated to do big things! I got introduced to OCN, when I bought my first Sony Vaio for $2,000 in 2006. Ever since the day I found out the Best Buy employee lied and told me my computer was water cooled... it motivated me to join the community, and learn about building computers and altering their attributes.

I just recently finished Project Revenge on December 15, 2009. The problem is: It wasn't what I really wanted. So this time I'm doing it right, with a totally different mind state.

Parts:
AMD Phenom X4 965 C3 Black Edition
G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB 1600MHz 7-8-7-24-2T
Asus Crosshair III Formula
Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB
Cooler Master Storm Scout
2x ATi Radeon XFX 5770 (reference)
Corsair H50
3x Cooler Master R4 Red LED


New Parts:
Nvidia Gigabyte GTX 470 (model B)
2x Intel x25-V 40GB's


Parts to be purchased:
Cooler Master HAF 932
Nvidia 470
Crosshair 4 Extreme
AMD Bulldozer
more to come....


Stay tuned.


--------------------
Forget it, I'm going with Intel!

CASE:HAF 932, black bkgrnd + UV splash!
GPU:Gigabyte [B Model] GTX 470
GPU:Gigabyte [B Model] GTX 470
CPU:Intel i5-2500k (or i7-2600k)

PSU:SeaSonic X-750

----------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: 1 year later, surprise twist is Bulldozer failed!

(sorry I had to)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EDIT #2 in 2013

Yeah, no thanks AMD (at least, CPU wise)

Hello, Intel.... I don't feel like waiting for Haswell-Extreme or Skylake, so I'll hop on the Ivy Bridge-Extreme bridge.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 

Change is good, even if it took however long it took, and here starts my build:

 

CPU: Intel i7-4930k

MOBO: ASUS Dark?

MEMORY: TBA
SSD: Samsung PRO 512GB
HDD/SSD: TBA
GPU: 290X?
PSU: SeaSonic X-750
CASE: TBA
COOLING: H110
COOLING: TBA
SOUND: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
SOUND: Samson SR850
SOUND: Samson C01 XLR Condenser Microphone
MONITOR: TBA
MOUSE: TBA

MOUSEPAD: BB RocketFish
KEYBOARD:
KBT Race


I did promise pictures of my old benz, and now we have to wait for a new bimmer to be purchased (the vehicle only effects the color scheme, and it will be either black or white)

Reserved for pictures of my new car (still not figured out yet).

I forgot to mention this is the main reason why I am building a new computer (or transforming my old one into a greater one!).

Such a sad story.. one of the employees wearing a tie told me my Sony Vaio was water-cooled. I signed up to OCN to ask the question back in 07, and here I am.


Good news!

I just got a free HAF 932, and it's brand new missing both side panels.

My lil' brother picked up a brand new Nikon D3000!

I am 100% I will be sharing pictures.

I just have a lot of things going on right now.. I want a new car, aquarium...etc

Give me time to wait on the bulldozer + crosshair 4 extreme... I'll be back later!

Ok, I'm back... still working on the car smile.gif

I really want to get something different... scratch the HAF X. I just got disgusted with my HAF 932 + Storm Scout!

Not sure what to get, any suggestions on something classy?

When the heck is BF3 coming out, so I can decide to get 2x 470s or one card?
I could only imagine purchasing a 120Hz LCD monitor and wanting 120FPS constant in BF3 (which I know is darn right asking too much from my pockets). So I won't take the thread that far. For now, I want a case and was hoping to ask the community for suggestions on upgraded parts for my current sig rig.

I was hoping to not mention budget (I guess it's needed, but I'm a very picky shopper & like to buy things when they are supposably on sale), because I would be shopping on Black Friday and CyberMonday.

Something under $300 at the moment, so if I'm lucky I will wait and see if the price drops during the electronic shopping days smile.gif

Seriously, it's time to change it up a bit. I'm going with Intel, can we just transfer this thread over to the other side - please - ?
