CPU – Intel i5 750
I was looking out for something that would seem to balance well with my GPUs. Nothing else really to say.
Cooler – Corsair H50
I wanted water cooling, but I didn’t feel ballsy enough to do a custom loop.
Motherboard – EVGA P55 SLI
It said SLI and my CPU fit in it.
Memory – Corsair XMS3 8GB (4x2GB)
I don’t do anything spectacular on my PC, so 8GB seemed plenty.
SSD – Intel 320 Series 40GB
Contains my Windows 8.1 install and nothing else.
HDD – Western Digital Blue 1TB
Contains everything else.
GPU – PNY GeForce GTS450 SLI
I wanted to have a flashy computer without the money dump. So having two mid-tier GPUs in SLI seemed compromising.
Case – XCLIO A380COLOR
I just REALLY wanted a flashy computer.
PSU – Antec 1200w
Someone on a forum said I needed a lot of good, clean power, and recommended this. It’s good, but way overkill for my build.
Mouse – Cyborg R.A.T 3
I thought the mouse looked cool. Plus I wanted a real gaming mouse.
