And I pulled apart a dead desktop I had lying around so I could salvage the harddrive. Too many precious memories in this baby to destroy. But omg, it's my very first time building a computer from the motherboard up and I'm super excited because I've been using my current desktop for many years now and I think it's time for an upgrade.
Note: I'm building a gaming PC/supercomputer that can take me to infinity.
Currently I'm using an AMD build but I'm considering an Intel switch if I don't end up splurging above my 600 limit [lol fml].
And this is what my blueprint looks like:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth X58
Hard drive: Seagate [1TB]
Video Card: [Undetermined, probably an XFX graphics card with dual display, iono]
And not including the tower and Blu-ray player/DVD burner I'm looking at... a project that may be a little above my price range. And if my current desktop wasn't on life support I wish I could say that I had all the patience in the world, really. But um, my goal is to get this done by December. Yeah :]
So omg you guise. And so it begins.
Wish me luck ♥♥♥.
