    First Build!

    Hey. So, i came into a fair amount of cash a few weeks ago and had been planning a new-build for a while. Had only had shop bought pc's in the past and thought i'd try my hand and building my own. I ended up blowing a just under £700 GBP on the beast, it was worth it though. It turned out beautifully. Went with: Amd Athlon II X4 645 Processor @ 3.1ghz 8Gb Corsair XMS3 classic DDR3 @ 1333mhz MSI 870-G55 Mobo w/ OC Genie button and Support for crossfire 1GB Palit GeForce 465 Smart Edition graphics card 500GB Segate HDD @ 7200rpm ArcticCooling Freezer 7 Pro v2 CPU Cooler 700W EzCool Modular PSU w/ SLI/Crossfire support Sony DVD+R cd drive Win7 home 4x 120mm Akasa Blue LED'd case fans All finished off nicely in a CoolerMaster 430 Elite case w/ side window. All in all, im quite proud of myself. Its enough of a beast for my purposes. It runs fairly quiet and idles at between 11C and 18C, temps recorded from the official AMD OverDrive program and the CoreTemp program. Here's some pics mid build and finished products: Do bear in mind that i've tidied the cables since taking pics XD http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0408.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0409.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0410.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0411.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0412.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0413.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0416.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Image0417.jpg http://i499.photobucket.com/albums/rr360/azur3lupus/Duke/Coretempsidle.png What do you guys think?
