I've been in the internet marketing scene for a while and have earned some good coin so I decided to reward myself. My buddy and I spent the weekend buying the parts and putting it all together. I know this setup is overkill but I'm hoping to not have to replace/upgrade it for a while. The video card was also a splurge - the computer is also for playing games when I'm not working. The 8-core processor was also overkill but I run a lot of resource-intensive software. I've never had the pleasure of playing games on max graphics settings so this is a ton of fun for me! I've been brutally raped by penguin so I'm hoping this system will give me the encouragement I need to get my websites back up and earning. Thanks for all the amazing help and ideas everyone here at BHW has posted! Every post has pushed me one step closer to where I am today and will continue to push me further! Anyways - here is the computer and my current setup. Let me know what you think! I would also love to see what other people are using for their operations - Please post your pics Just bought all the parts: Parts Laid out: The motherboard (CPU Attached): My current setup: My setup(2): Finished Computer Side View: Finished Computer Front View: Sorry about the enormous low-resolution photos.
