    Why the 8GB 290x?! :O

    My current build:

    Hadron Air
    2500k
    GTX 960
    Avexir Core Blue 16GB
    SSD + HDD
    Sapphire PURE H67

    LG Ultrawide 29inch <3

    It's pretty sweet in terms of performance/monitor experience but I need to sort out the cable management in the chassis, as it looks gross through the window.

    Mine is a little old, but more than sufficient for what I do on it. I built it in late 2012 or early 2013, I don't remember exactly. I've been focused on college for the past few years rather than gaming..

    CPU: Intel Core i7-3770S. A power saving version of the 3770. I got a discount on it, and it's possible to raise the clock speed to 3.9GHz just like the normal 3770. It's basically the same die, just different default settings. I don't overclock anyway, so I took the deal.

    CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. A fairly standard CPU cooler, better than the stock Intel cooler.

    Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65. A motherboard with military-class components, and a blue/black colour scheme. It's very stable and well-designed.

    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 1866MHz. They have timings of 8-9-9-24, and I liked the colour blue on the heat spreaders. Good reviews, haven't had any issues yet.

    GPU: MSI GeForce 670 PE 2GD5/OC 2GB. Same brand as my Motherboard, also has military components and a matching colour scheme, plus I've had good experience with MSI in the past. It has a slight factory overclock, and I've just left that in place. It slightly outperforms a 680 in most games, or at least comes close to the same performance.

    PSU: Corsair Professional Series HX650W. This one has fairly solid components as well (Japanese capacitors), and it also has the black/blue colour scheme. I can't remember if it was 80Plus Bronze or Silver version, but I remember that a reviewer tested it to be one level above the efficiency you would expect.

    SSD: Crucial M4 512GB Sata III. I wanted better performance, my normal HDDs always fail within 3 years, and I rarely use more than 200GB on a hard drive anyway. I just don't need terabyte storage. So I went for a big SSD rather than the small SSD/big HDD. I didn't want to mess with partitioning. I made sure everything was Intel TRIM compliant to help extend the read/write cycles.

    Case: Antec Nine Hundred Two. I got this directly from Antec as B-Stock for $50. It was a very good deal, as the case came with a lot of good fans. Yes, it has the Blue/Black colour scheme.

    Monitor: LG 23ET83V-W Silver 23" IPS panel. It's supposed to be a touch screen monitor, and I liked my Microsoft Surface so much that it seemed like a nice idea. It worked fine for the first week, but then a part of the screen malfunctioned and now it acts like it's being pressed in a certain place all the time. It got to a point where I had to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in repeatedly, and then it got to the point that nothing I did would fix the problem. However, the monitor was so beautiful and so easy on my eyes that I didn't have the heart to send it back for repair/replacement. It's the best monitor I've ever had, and I wouldn't have been able to use the computer until it was replaced. So I just removed the USB cable and never used the touchscreen again.

    Mouse: CST L-Trac Laser Trackball 1600DPI. It's American made and costs about $100, but it's worth every penny. No need for a mousepad, very comfortable. It's based on the old Microspeed trackballs that were popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but it's very much improved. It's so accurate you can use it for CAD software, and it's great for gaming (if you like Trackballs) because the DPI is adjustable.

    Keyboard: Unicomp Classic 104 Black Buckling Spring USB. Yes, I spent $70 on a keyboard. For someone that writes as much as I do and types 80WPM, it's worth it. It's an updated version of the old IBM "clicky" keyboards, made by an American company called Unicomp. The keyboard is built like a tank, the tactile response is unbeatable, and government offices still buy the things in bulk. The workers bought the factory and the tooling when IBM closed their hardware division to move manufacturing overseas. It's based in Kentucky, I think.

    Optical drive: LG Black Blu-Ray burner. Basically, what it sounds like. I liked the fact that the emblem matched my monitor, nothing else really influenced the purchase.

    I don't have any pictures of the actual case, because it's at the bottom of my LAN station. The computer I'm talking about is the one on the left, though. The one on the right is a piece of junk with mostly old parts thrown together that still work. I occasionally use the ancient monitor on top for old games that look bad on the HD monitors, or as a place for secondary console readouts while doing something in Linux.

    I'll do it to show my rough prices rather than **** measuring, I think it's just as interesting to see what you can get with a budget. All bought September 2014

    CPU: 2500k (£90)
    GPU: GTX 780 (see below)
    RAM: 8GB (GPU + RAM = £130)
    Motherboard: Maximus IV Gene-Z (£40 I think)
    PSU: 750W Seasonic EVO (£80)
    Cooler: Hyper 212 (£20)
    Hard drive: 1TB Toshiba HDD (£45)
    OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit (£25)
    Case: RL04B (£30)
    And a disc drive and few fans for a few pound.

    Total: About £450

    Keyboard and mouse plain old Argos/charity shop/freebie stuff, monitor is 24 inch Samsung, 'cause the TV bit is a bit dodgy (because Samsung TVs are crap, don't buy them) so I use it as a monitor. But on the plus side I got a 42 inch Panasonic Full HD Plasma for £150 as the replacement TV. Local Facebook selling groups are awesome, that thing was £1000 if you bought it new.
