Building my new desktop

After 5 years of gaming on a laptop, I finally decided to go all out this Black Friday and build myself a powerful gaming desktop. After some researching around (aka poking around Logical Increments and Tom’s Hardware) and getting some advice/assistance from friends, I put together my first desktop, a pretty mean machine too. And of course, this called for many pictures as well as an obligatory FRAPS test.


Blade & Soul (CN) at max settings, killing a random world boss.
YouTube compression completely killed the video quality unfortunately :( See the higher quality version here

Looking forward to making some fun PvP videos with this new setup!
