Damn I'm like a kid on Christmas ready to open presents. I ordered the rest of my build, even paid for rush processing. When I ordered my video card it was processed and shipped by 10:30 the following morning and I received it the next day from NJ. This time they take an entire day to process and ship from TN. I'll be lucky to get it for the weekend. Damn I'm impatient...

That's what I ended up doing, something must have gone down wrong on the original install. It's working much better now, but all I have is Borderlands 2 lol

Quick question to those of you with corsair PSUs, did it come in a sort of velvet bag? Kind of like a bottle of crown royal. I am insanely impressed with this PSU. It was slightly more expensive ($20+ vs other similar options) but damn its built so freaking well.

This case is sick too. Take a look at one in person if you have a chance, Cooler master storm trooper full tower. It's got filters in front of every fan, a storage cubby, tons of space, and great wiring routes. My wiring looks MUCH better this time, almost good enough to show you guys

Also, I caved and bought a corsair 60gb SSD. Hopefully it's just as good as their ram and PSUs!

Not to be a negative nancy, but don't plan on putting too much on a 60gb drive.

Very true, and a downside of wanting the performance boost. Fortunately I have a pretty much empty 1tb hdd ready to take the brunt of my downloads.

I figure start with a 60gb and get a bigger one as the prices come down.

It was only $50 for a 60gb SATAIII corsair SSD, so I could easily justify that cost since everything else was much cheaper than I budgeted for.

Right now, I have a 2TB WD Green drive I use to store video/music/docs/etc., a 1TB 7200RPM drive for the majority of my applications and games, and a 128GB M4 for my OS, smaller apps, and the occasional game. Then I have a 2TB external for backups. I started out my build with just the 1TB drive and shortly after got the SSD, but quickly realized that 1TB was just not enough for me.

Quick question, noticed my stoarage drive(WD Caviar Black 2tb) isn't showing up in my computer, shows up in bios and isn't making any beeping or sounds of any sort. It's spinning and warm so I know it's not dead.

Just not sure why it isn't coming up in my computer.

Hopefully you haven't written anything to the drive yet.

I think I'm going to have that realization too. Hopefully HDDs and SSDs keep getting cheaper and I'll just add storage as sales come and go.

Hopefully my SSD ships by tomorrow. I'm waiting until them before I completely set my computer up.

HDDs aren't supposed to decrease in price substantially until 2014.

Probably not the right thread, I suppose, but does anyone else use BOINC? Not really a traditional means of testing for stability of an OC, but I've found it puts a pretty good strain on the system for a 24/7 OC.
