Don't know what you're going to use it for, but if you're gaming on it, it's overpowered on the CPU side, could have shifted more to a better GPU (nothing a later upgrade can't fix though). The 830 would have been a better choice for a SSD and the PSU is overkill (wattage-wise).

Anywho, sorry for being a negative nancy. Congratulations!

Thanks Growled ;-)

and I got this CPU cuz it was a good deal at microcenter... only 169 instead of 230 like newegg had it!!! Plus it's easier to upgrade the GPU.

Also I love Antec and I needed a modular PSU. and The wattage is needed for upgrades. Got a good deal on it too.

I am also doing a lot of Hyper-V stuff so I need a good CPU.


What's nuts is I have 59 min runtime on my Back-UPs XS1000 reported by APC on this system... and I will have 39 minutes runtime gaming on skyrim at max settings!!!! This system is very efficient also becuase I have no optical drives, not many case fans and no LEDs or bling like my old system did. I also have no card readers or PCI card devices installed either... using onboard sound.

I installed my OS with a USB Pen drive and I went from the first install screen to desktop in just 10 minutes!!!!

Enjoy the ride... so to speak :D

All real solid components, Three Hundred (Two) FTW - great looking, dirt cheap for the quality and spacing it offers. Haven't seen the revised edition, got the old one myself. I think they've even fixed fan controller wires so now they're attached to the back instead of I-don't-know-where-to-put-the-wretched-things, yes?
