Default My build complete and awsome....

This is the computer I built a couple days ago with your guys help and let me tell you, this thing is awsome. Plays all my games on high settings, awsome graphics, multi tasking has never been easier. I am running this thing stock and to tell you the truth, I see no need to even OC this computer. Takes anything I throw at it. Thanks for the help guys, couldn't be happier.

Thumbs up Re: My build complete and awsome....

Everything looks awesome except...buying the antivirus. $40? Nope. AVG or Avast could have served you well....for free. You could have used that $$ towards a game.
Oh, and the floppy drive...I didn't know they were still being used.
I've been wanting to buy that exact case. But I remember a couple of months ago it was $10 cheaper.

Other than that, awesome build.
Good luck

You still need floppys if you want to do anything with RAID or bios flashing, but yeh otherwise they are obsolete.

The floppy drive isnt even hooked up because I would rarely use it and I hate ribon cables. The case I have needs a floppy drive in it or there is a gap in the front Otherwise the case is awsome. As far as the anti virus, It really is a great AV. I dont mind paying the money for it.

You can make a flash drive bootable now a days and just load any bios flash or RAID drivers into it. Floppies are gone man, let it go! :P

You can do all that stuff with a USB stick. I haven't had a floppy in any of my PCs for years
