    Cool [Build Log] First Gaming Computer: Build Pics

    Hey guys!

    So after a long time of deciding what my build should be, i've finally started ordering the components.
    I have 3 Components so far. The GPU, CPU and Motherboard, although the GPU and CPU are at my friends place cuz he bought them from Japan. I'll just be posting pics on here of the components and the unboxing etc.

    But first, here's my build:

    SiBii Gaming Computer:

    Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene
    GPU: MSi R7970 Lightning GHz Edition
    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K
    PSU: NZXT Hale 90 650W 80+ Gold
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB 1600MHz (2x8GB)
    SSD: Samsung 840 Series 120GB
    CASE: Zalman Z11 Plus

    Some might wonder, "Where's your HDD?"
    Well my budget got a little tight so i decided to get it later
    HDD1: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
    HDD2: Seagate Barracuda 2TB

    I won't be unboxing it completely yet. I'm going to wait for all the components to arrive so i can build and then i'll take some pictures of the unboxing. Might even vid it

    I'll post up pictures of the CPU and GPU when I get them over to my place. Soon my precious, soon.

    Hahaha not yet. Soon! and then you'll see me with my happy face and all xD

    In the mean time! I got the CPU and GPU over to my place and got some decent pictures.
    You'll see that the GPU will already be out of the box and that's because when my friend was coming from Japan he couldn't place the box as it was so he had to open it up. But yeah, enjoy!

    Here you see the GPU and it's box. Also the CPU and some cables and a certificate
