      Description

      This rig is the very first computer I have built.  Not the first I have tinkered with however.  I originally intended it to last me about 10 years, and it looks like it will be able to achieve that.  "10 years" you say?  Why certainly.  I obtained some original parts from my older computers, although the main backbone of the computer was bought new.. Unfortunately, without upgrading the processor from Sandy to Ivy, my computer is going to be using PCI E 2.0 instead of 3.0.  Overall though I don't think it's that big of a problem until I start crossfiring a bunch of cards.  Speaking of cards; I'm still rocking a HD5870.  Been using it for a few years and it has served me well.  I think I'll feel a little emotional when I finally retire it.  Overall, this isn't a terrible build, although in hindsight I regret the CM storm scout.  It's really bad for watercooling.
