Yo, my name is Samuel and I just ordered a new custom gaming rig. I used to play on PS3, but felt like I really did not belong there, so I just bought a ThermalTake level 10 gt case, Asus motherboard (can't remember name atm), Amd fx-8120 proccessor, corsair 16gb vengeance ram, 750w corsair PSU and Nvidia geeforce gtx560 2gb. I came here to make friends and learn to OC my CPU. I hope I like it here and I really hope you enjoy having me here aswell, ohh and by the way, I am from New-Brunswick, Canada ;D

Once Z hears another Canadian made it into this forum...welcome to OCN! Don't mind the flame that you will get from your CPU. But welcome to at least the most helpful forum that I have ever been to.

Yes, well at first I chose a no name brand and then I thought about an expression I heard that" The car is only good as the driver" so i used 80. $ more but I have a feeling I won't regret it.

Don't worry so much about the no-brand PSU, I've bought a PSU that wasn't very popular in brand naming but it powers my Q6600 and GTX465! 500w, of course it'll power it with the right connections.

If you go under your user control panel there is an area where you can type in your specs like most of us have in our posts. It is really nifty and saves you from having to say what is in your system.

Welcome to PC gaming. Once you learn the mouse and keyboard your gameplay will dramatically improve. Also, welcome to the community. There is someone is pretty much every section who knows their stuff and can guide you. You will learn plenty here.

A lot of my PC knowledge came from joining a gaming clan. Luckily, there are a lot of tech savvy people that I met and it helped a lot not only with gaming and computers, but in pursuing my degree and career. You will truly learn a lot.

One last thing, the level of competitiveness in online games is much larger. Enjoy the new rig and enjoy the graphics and power of PC gaming.
