Description

This system started off with a humble i7-3820 and a very overpriced Gigabyte Assassin 2 motherboard and a GTX 650. Later on I bought a R9 290x that had a mosfet go bad and lit on fire after I thought it was a PSU issue and tried a 1300w PSU on it. 2 days after that I bent a pin on the motherboard and ended up selling the CPU/mobo combo and getting a 4790k and a  Z97x SOC (what is it with me and Gigabyte boards I hate them) and now we are here. 6 months later still with a ad GTX 650 waiting to get another good deal on a 290x.

Only thing still in there is the case. The rest is dead or sold (I hated that PSU)
