schweeeeeet

1st 2 mins 38 is the setup

Not anymore. His graphics cards are already out of date as they don't do DX11 and it looks like he has IDE cables in there instead of all SATA. Could also do away with all the lights, would run a little cooler too. I use to like all the lights on rigs but now they look tacky.

I'm building a new rig and it's all SATA for the drives. No more IDE as those cables block too much air and are no fun to work with. Also I hate lights in my case because if I keep my machine on at night to run something, the lights keep me awake. I can sleep through the sound but blue lights on my ceiling and walls just is annoying.

They've always looked tacky, you're just older now. ;)

Wow! you must really do a good job at keeping your docs and folders organized. I would love to be able to reinstall windows and everything every 4-6 months, but I always have files everywhere and it becomes too daunting of a task to back it (all/ I always back up my important stuff!) up.

Maybe I'm just getting old, but.... what a waste of money. I spent about 1200 USD on my desktop two years ago and got nearly the same windows score, and it played crysis maxed as well. As long as you shop smart, and dont assume just cause its the most expensive it the best, you can put together an awesome gaming rig for a fraction of the cost.

But to each his own I suppose....

I spent over $7000 dollars for building my computer, I have had it for 2 years now. And it still runs like a charm. My next build up, I think I will be spending around $8000 dollars. But this one, will be a killer rig
