Thanks guys! It's always good to build with a modular PSU :P It is so easy to do a good job at cable management with the AX 760. I hope I'll be building more in the future! Oh and he was so excited haha lol, It works flawlessly.

potatochobit, I just finished a word processing and general internet surfing PC for my grandmother. Despite all my objections, she insisted upon having Win8 on it. That was the first time I have ever used a copy of Win8 and it was a nightmare setting it up. They changed so much about it.

haha, yea, except I wouldn't have gone with the Level 10 GT...I really wanted him to get the Trooper but nooooooooooo...lol. Solid Rig, loads windows in literally seconds :O Gotta get myself a Samsung 840 pro...

 

you built a nice computer and actually CHOSE windows 8? 

 

lol.....

hahaha!!! What's wrong with windows 8? lol, I mean I left that decision to him...He wanted to go with Win 7 but his mum told him to get the latest lol. I've been using windows 8 for quite some time now (on my laptop) and to me, It's pretty good, the main reason I like it is because it is so snappy. And Thanks!

Looks clean, but could of saved some cash and got a 7950 instead.

Nah, he wanted 'the best of the best', he wanted a Titan, 7990 or 690 :/ And I was like "you don't need that much power for a 1600x900 res monitor..." lol. So the 7970GHz was the best bets, It is also future proofed...:)

Yea I do realise there are more SSDs out there lol :P but what I meant was, the 840 pro seems to be a trustworthy SSD. I want to be able to feel 'safe' about my data lol. I recently found out OCZ SSDs are pretty bad in terms of long term use...Sad.
