SWITCH3D
NZXT Switch 810 Build
105

So this build originally started with a budget of $800 and quickly spiraled out of control.
Due to going over my budget by such a large margin I am going to have to hold off on a few things I would like to do, namely water cooling.
I did decide to go with a case that will be able to accommodate water cooling when I get there (hopefully in a few more months).

Parts List

MB: EVGA Z68 FTW
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K
PSU: NZXT HALE90 1000W
GPU: EVGA 560 ti 448 Cores Classified
Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB DDR3 1600
Cooling: EVGA Superclock CPU Cooler
Case: NZXT Switch 810 Black
SSD: SAMSUNG 830 128GB
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB x2

This build is going to be used mostly for gaming (WoW and SWTOR), folding when it isn't busy and some light Photoshop work.
Everything has already been purchased now I just need to wait for the last few items to arrive so I can start putting this together.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I do. biggrin.gif

Update: 2-9-12

I just received the tracking information for my case, hard drives and a few extra case fans! Hopefully I will have everything for the build by this weekend so I can really get to work.

Update: 2-10-12

Case arrived today and so did a few other items, now I just need to get home from work! I am going to try and get everything setup tonight. I did a test run of the board and proc last night and everything seems to be working fine. biggrin.gif

I will update with some pictures after I get everything going. I still have a few things I want to pick up but they are going to need to wait.

The list of things still left to buy:

MDPC Sleeving Grey/Titanium Combination (Nils is closed until the 12th of February)
Water Cooling - Need to save up some more funds (Hopefully this summer) Thinking about the XSPC Rasa kit but it will depend if I can get more $$$ or not.

Yes that is air cooling you see in the background. At least it is not stock lol.

I am working for the next few days and still have to wait on the case.
Once I have some more daylight and more parts I will take a few more pics and hopefully start showing some progress.

They are on sale again for $199 at Newegg.

I actually picked mine up cheaper, I had a special 10% off coupon I used when it was already on sale for $189 smile.gif
