So this list is what you want to upgrade to, but need advise for potential alternatives, correct?

nope as this says "This is where you lay out the plans for your rig and post status updates or simply record the building process of your rig. This is known as a log."

I'm currently waiting on parts to arrive and it was getting difficult to keep track of how much money I was spending overall so I decided to utilize this forum

Right now! smile.gif

Case came, I was not impressed with the condition of the box:
Box Condition (Click to show)



some pics of the case: I didn't realize the top and bottom is plastic. I understand but it makes it feel cheap.




I'm hoping that a rad will fit on the front of the case with the drive bay removed which i need to remove for the video card.

Look what else came, Ram!



More parts are scheduled to arrive tomorrow.

video card and cooler get here next week, I'm actually waiting on a package from antec I need the stand offs for the intel processor and they were awesome enough to send me a free replacement: me and antec (Click to show)
Remnant - "I got my 620 a while back and didn't think I would ever need it longer than my cpu. I stupidly got rid of the parts needed to mount my 620 on my recently acquired socket 1155 i5-2500k. Is there any way that I could get the mounting parts that I need?"

Antec - "Hi Remnant,

Thank you for contacting Antec. We'll ship a mounting kit right out to you.

Your spare parts order has been entered.\

windows 8.1 installed, currently using as a basic htpc until the remainder of parts get here, could be up to 2 weeks.
I didn't sell the motherboard that I didn't need, instead I gave it to my father in law to rebuild his server which is good to me. I just want it to get used smile.gif

also pretty sure I'm not going to be able to use my front audio. the connectors are in front of the pcie. . . I'm pretty sure it would get in the way of the gpu doh.gif
