Default New Gaming Rig...

Hey, everyone, jus wanted to say thanks for those who helped me w/ questions prior to the build and those who gave me advice on parts.

My case finally came in yesterday, and was the last thing I ordered. I assembled it right away when i got it and got everything working in 8-9hours or so; now only thing I need to upgrade is the cooling kit for the CPU[using stock for now] Idle wise it stays at 33-37c and workload gets to 38-42c...sooo lookin to OC it to around 3.3-3.7ghz; got any aftermarket cooling kit suggestion? =)

anyways, jus wanted to share the finish product...the specs are listed below.

I bet you that system will last you at least 4 years. Plus that system is super upgradable. Dang I wish I could afford a system like that.
