Has anyone ever built their own PC? Or have you ever been interested in doing it? I just finished building a desktop for myself. It's actually the second one I've ever built, but the first was for a friend of my dad's. I've always stuck to using laptops, but when my last one went up I just decided to get a cheap laptop and build myself a gaming desktop - and I wound up getting a lot more power and upgradeability/serviceability for a lot less price. The parts for those interested: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ CPU Heatsink/Cooler ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 ATX Motherboard G.Skill Ares 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR3 1600 SDRAM Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM HDD PNY GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB Video Card NZXT Source 220 ATX Case SilverStone ST50F-ES 500W Power Supply Lite-On DVD Burner I want to upgrade to a Blu-ray drive in the fairly near future and add an SSD in the more distant future, but for now I'm absolutely thrilled with the way it turned out. A few of the parts were a pain to install, but in the end it powered up on the first try and everything is running wonderfully.
