Quite a while ago I decided I wanted to build my own computer, and after a lot of researching, reviewing benchmarks and reviews, and changing things several times, I think I'm almost ready. I was wondering what you guys think of my build, and maybe how I can improve it with better parts, or how to save money in some areas. I wanted a SSD for the OS, but the build it already over one thousand dollars, which I wanted it to be cheaper. One thing I'm going to say up front is not to nag about my AMD processor, no matter what you say, I'm not going to change my mind ;)
