    Before I start I should mention that I have been contemplating and planning this build for some time now. Due to a turn of events that caused me to rip apart my PC this projects has been pushed forward. Most of the work shown is just some pics I took along the way and no pictures have been taken specifically for this thread/build log. Please note that the updates may be out of order since im putting things together as I get them and have the time.
    If there is something you want to know about the build or something you think I should add in the log please let me know. I will read all input and answer all questions as best I can, your input is appreciated!

The computer will need to be capable of basic usage including web browsing, mail and content consumption as well as a high-end gaming and Adobe content-creation (Photoshop, Premier, Illustrator). The machine will need to be future-proofed for at least 6 months with current parts and at least 5 years with less than half the parts replaced.

    TheKDub got a reaction from BookerDeWitt in Which GPU/s do you recommend for gaming.   
    I'd go with the R9 280X, as djdwosk97 said, if you can afford it go for a R9 290 or 290x.

    TheKDub reacted to ACatWithThumbs in Why are PC gamers *usually* such jerks to console gamers?   
    Because most console gamers are ignorant and talk crap that just isn't true.
    Platform wars in general are complete BS because every platform has its benefits.


    Console gamer of 2012 : Graphics don't matter 620p/30Fps is good enough.
    Console gamer of 2013 : XboxOne can only do 720p Ps4 is so much better because it can do 1080p hahahaha
    Console gamer of 2014 : 1080p and 60Fps don't matter 720p/900p/30fps is good enough it's all about the gameplay.

    PC gamer of 2012 : Consoles graphics suck and games are more expensive on consoles.
    PC gamer of 2013 : Consoles graphics suck and games are more expensive on consoles.
    PC gamer of 2014 : Consoles graphics suck and games are more expensive on consoles.

    At least PC gamers stay to there opinion.
