Re: Building a new gaming rig
PC has been assembled for a while, running great. Have only had it freeze on me once or twice and that was after like 6 hours of gaming and the SSD reads at 128c. Only other problem I'm having is a CPU fan error. It's not detecting the CPU fan, I think my brother may have plugged it into a different fan slot or something. I'm using the Cooler Master V6-GT on an Asus Sabertooth 990FX Mobo. So far the only things I need now is to tweak my settings, possibly reconnect the fan or disable Q-Fan in the bios and I need to add a second hard drive. I've hooked my Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers to it and they sound pretty good, I'd invest in some true surround sound speakers but I just don't think it's worth it. I hooked up my Razer Lachesis and my Logitech G15 to game with, but I've since replaced my G15 with a G510 I got on discount. When I can afford it I'm buying a R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse and a Logitech G930 wireless headset, but for now I'm using the Lachesis and Logitech H390 usb headset.
I'll be adding in a spare 500GB HDD to put my games on, I won't be adding in a 1TB or larger HDD until I start filling up the 500GB drive first, I'm not a big downloader so I don't fill space up too fast.
My biggest planned upgrade will be going from this 5770 to a 6950, will be doing this when I can afford it, i.e. after I have a steady job which will hopefully be soon.
I can't wait for Battlefield 3.
Edit: I'm definitely going to have to buy a window unit for my room, this PC is a beast and it puts out a lot of heat for such a small room. Afraid I'll burn it out or cause myself to die of heat stroke if I were to ever get into a long gaming session on it, room gets well over 100f.
