        Hello PC enthusiasts!

OK I will start off saying that this is my second build, the first one being a potato, but i'm glad I stuck my neck out there. I am a fairly new PC builder that came from Xbox 360. I switched to PC gaming because I was tired of paying sixty dollars a year for Xbox Live, and all of the kids screaming into the mic on Call of Duty. I came across some YouTube videos that showed you how to build your own computer, and I was so scared at first but I decided to give it a try and boy was a glad I did. My first rig was quite horrible, but i'm glad I started off building a low end computer, because lets be honest I didn't know a thing about building one! OS: Wind 8.1 64bit Case : Rosewell Line M MOBO: MSI A78M-E35 CPU: AMD athlon x4 760k GPU: R7 260x 2GB OC RAM: Crusial Ballistic Sport 1x8 ddr3 1600 Storage: West Digital Blue 1tb 7200rpm PSU: Corsair cx430 I played on this computer for about two years, playing mostly Battlefield 4, and I got good fast getting used to playing on keyboard and mouse. I struggled to get sixty FPS on low settings on multiplayer, and compared to my new build this one is a potato, but I still loved it because I built it! I now still play on Battlefield 4 (MyCampGround_HHA) and I am ranked 7 world for attack helicopter kills, and I am apart of the Godlike competitive helicopter flying clan AcesHigh Gaming. OK so now you know a little bit about me, but lets get down to the juicy stuff, the new build! Overall the build went very smoothly without any dead on arrival parts, and everything fit perfectly in the the Fractal Design R4 case, which by the way is absolutely amazing! As you can tell in the pictures I did some modding to the case which consists of Plasti dipping the Hard drive trays and PCI expansion slots, along with the stencils designs on the outside of the case. Shout out to my friend and clan member of AcesHigh Gaming WiNgZxRaM for helping me design the stencils, he did an amazing job. The lettering and Nvidia sign were printed on thick paper, cut out, and then spray painted with Plastidip. The helicopter was printed on to a sticker for a label, cut out, and then peeled off the backing to expose the sticky part of the label. Other than that everything else is pretty strait forward with clean looking cable extentions, and tidy cable mananagement, and the custom LED lighting the brings this build together. All in all I am extremely happy with my build, but now i'm sad because it's done and it was so much fun to build! Thanks for reading this long and extensive description, and leave a comment with any suggestions or input, and I will respond back! Your fellow PC enthusiast, MyCampGround

HeyHey another battlefield guy. I was 9th in the world for the Attack Jet for the first 2 months of Bf4 before I stopped playing the game often. Ohhh the good-ol days. Nice build. I like the custom side panel. The nvidia logo looks sick in red. +1

Haha, guess your old build's pic snuck in there. I was about to give you the obligatory hard time for the CX-430. Good looking build, and really dig the touches you added (plasti-dipped graphics) - wish I was that creative/talented.
