I feel that most companies that build gaming computers put a large amount of overkill into their machines. This is just an opinion though.

Early December last year I walked into Fry's for a video car for a budget build (which I still have the parts laying around for ) $1900 later.........

Since then I've added another Geforce 670 4Gb vid card, and a couple more case fans.


All in all, not my favorite build that I've done, but it'll do for now. (Impulse build lol)



Here are pics from the day it was built:

Wow, didn't know we had so many system builders on here, this is awesome! You guys have some sick rigs, that's for sure. Also loving the nice cable management guys and gals. Great refresher from some of the rigs I see on on reddit, haha.

Here's my rig.

This is my old setup, I needed two monitors since I upgraded at work not too long ago.



The new setup


The PC - i5 2500K, 8GB Corsair Vengeance, XFX 6870 1GB, ASUS MB, WD 300GB Raptor HDD, WD 1TB Black HDD, Corsair 650w HX PSU, & Lian-Li MATX tower.





Past & Present


Here's my workstation. The PC is an HP circa 2010 with some pretty sad specs. Should be getting replaced soon.

This is the old setup


The New Setup




And here's some more of my work I've been doing in my spare time.

I've built a couple more since I created that album.

Hey everyone! I've never built a PC before, but I want to make a PC that will absolutely melt my face when I play Battlefield 4. I'll probably be hooking it up to my 55" Vizio. Any suggestions of where to start?

Well... I don't need it for anything else, so basically whatever it takes to melt my face in BF4 awesomeness. I can get Windows for free (not pirated) so that frees up about $150.

Love the computers you guys have.
My home PC started as a under $1000 build, in Feb. of 2010 (I was still a college intern). It has undergone a few upgrades along the years, with the major rebuild being in January 2013.

Original build equipment (Feb. 2010):
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (fitted with 5 Antec cooling fans)
ASUS P7P55D EVO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Power Supply
2 x Hitachi 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
1 x LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM

2011 upgrades:
Second ATI Radeon HD 5750, using CrossFire
Upgrade to 8GB RAM

2012 upgrades:
None

2013 upgrades:
ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
A couple red LEDs for the case

I definitely need to work on some cable management though. My case is not nearly as clean as the ones I've seen on this thread.
