So I finally got everything together for my build and put it together last night. I did the best I could as far as cable management. The PSU was a gift, but the first thing I'll be investing in is a modular one. Additionally, my wife now trusts me to build her pc in January. I call it, "The Warmachine."

My Specs:

MSI 970a Mobo

AMD FX-4100 3.6ghz

Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8GB Ram

XFX Radeon 7850

Cooler Master HAF 922 Case

Hope you guys like it :)

I would like to just have more than 2g of RAM. :(

Looks great though! My brother made/had his friends buy him a PC essentially. One friend got him some $500 motherboard with 8g of RAM as well. Another friend got him the CM headset, mouse, and computer case. I think he only had to pay for [i[maybe[/i] half of the $1500 or so it cost in the end, haha. I'll get a new one for christmas/birthday though. :D

ONE STEP DOWN:
CoolerMaster Case w/750w PSU Asus Maximus II Formula MOBO (X-FI Sound) Intel Core 2 Extreme Q9650 Quad 3.0ghz CPU CoolerMaster Hyper N520 CPU Cooler 8gb (4x2) G.Skill DDR2 PC2-8500 (1066) Ram Crucial M4 128GB SSD Western Digital Raptor X 150gb 10000rpm HDD Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm HDD Nvidia Geforce GTX 570 HD 1280mb.

I call my rig one step down because I'm still using the older INtel Quad Cores instead of the newer over-priced I7s. I've got about $3000 invested. (including peripherals) But this PC is still running strong since 2009. WIth the newer Vid card its still able to play most games on max settings. Very happy with this and congrats on your new build. Looks great sir!

That's why I went AMD...I like their prices better! That and every pc I've ever owned has had AMD hardware and I've never had a problem. I love your build! I've got about 1300 into mine including peripherals and a water cooler that I haven't installed yet. And that's the thing I have learned about pc's in this whole process that if you build them right they will last a long time!
