Hi

I recently built my first PC, done major amounts of research since the beginning of 2013 and finally started in March, wished I had taken pictures from the start to show the build progress but I had no idea I would be showing others lol.

Basically just wanted to show other rog members out there what they think of my build and if there are any ways in which I can Improve it here are the specs:

CPU: I5 3570k OC'D @ 4.4 ghz
MOBO: Maximus V Formula
Cooler: Corsair H80i + (2X Corsair SP120 Quiet Editions)
RAM: 8GB Corsair Dominator GT 1866 ghz
GPU: ASUS Direct CUII GTX 770
PSU: Corsair AX860I
SSD 1:Corsair Force GT 240gb (OS)
SSD 2:Corsair Force GT 120gb (Games)
HDD 1:Western Digital Blue 1TB (Files)
Fans: 2x Corsair AF140 Quiet Edition & 200mm Coolmaster Megaflow Red
Lighting: NZXT 2M White LED Sleeved KIT
Case: Corsair 650D
OS: WIndows 8 PRO

My Set up:

Monitor: ASUS VN247H
Mouse: Razer Mamba 2012
Keyboard: Corsair K70 Black
Speakers: Philips SPA5300
Headset: Turtle Beach XP400
Console: XBOX 360 Slim 250gb

Here are a few pics, sorry about the quality, the camera on the galaxy S3 is rubbish

I was looking to upgrade the CPU and Cooler to I7 3770K and a Corsair H100i, also add another 8gb of dominator ram to total 16gb.

Maybe in a few months after the next gen games have released e.g (BF4, Watch Dogs, COD Ghosts and GTA5) I might think about SLIing with another gtx 770?

Please let me know on what you guess think give your suggestions on my upgrade plan also ill be happy to answer and questions. 😄

rotate the picture before adding it, right click on it and open in windows photo viewer and rotate it there.
for the memory i suggest to use only ONE kit, not mix.
if you mix you can end up having problems whit it.
upgrade the CPU is no need, IF you realy want to upgrade it go for the 4 series.
the 3770? is only for hyper treading and you dont realy need that for a gaming pc.

and nice pc and clean cabling!!!
