    I'm too lazy to copy the actual specs over, so you can just view them (and a few pictures at the bottom) over here: http://fortesp.com/specs.html

    First hand built computer, which was a ton of fun to actually build - much more gratifying then buying a crappy pre-built HP or Dell. Only planned upgrade is possibly a new GPU at Star Citizen's release and adding in another 8GB of RAM.

    Total cost was around $520~ for the case and internal parts. All the peripherals were bought over the course of two years and I'm too lazy to find how much they all cost.

    It's not quite built yet but I'm getting it done by Wednesday...

    CPU: AMD FX-8350
    RAM: 8GB 1600MHz
    GPU: Amd HD 7870
    Storage: 1x 1tb HDD, 1x 320GB HDD,
    Case: Aerocool Strike-X GT Devil Mid-Tower Gaming Case

    [​IMG]
    What I want to add/change: Pretty much everything but the case, the HDD's, the Disk drive will be replaced eventually. My old motherboard fucked itself so I'm using this until the end of the year. Hoping to get a 4tb hard drive and a ssd for my os. I also want to get a GTX 780ti but they cost about £500 so idk.

    Other: Mouse - Roccat Pyra (still got it from my laptop)

    want to add/change: Probably going to get another mouse and new headset (I gues bot Roccat :D )
    notes: Never get you part by Alternate: they realy tried to rip me of. When i build my pc it didn't boot because it needed a biosflash, so we went to Alternade and they told it didn't boot because I destroyed the motherboard by pushing to hard on the CPU or something..., they told me that i probably just needed to buy another motherbord (of €114). So we went to a complete other store, asked for an bios flash and they just did it, they didn't even bother that i bought the parts somewhere else, and everything worked just fine! :eek:

    No need for 32GB of RAM unless you're doing rendering or working with large graphics/media files, other than that there's no reason to go above 16 (no game needs that much).
