My Computer

32" and 22"(22" has been replaced by a newer model)

So for a long time I was the computer guy of my little group of friends.  I had virtually built my dream build so many times that I knew what was good and what wasn’t. I knew what went well with something else. I knew the right numbers for everything. Then when I got laid off from work I had one last paycheck to buy the computer I had been planning for the prior two or more years. I decided to go with a better price to performance ratio and built and AMD system. At that time the best processor was the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition. I built my system around this. I bought a decent motherboard at the time, It was a Foxconn A7DA S 3.0. I initially bought 4GB of G.Skill RAM, and went with a nice Zalman pure black pearl nickel plated copper heatsink. I decided to sacrifice directx 11 for a more powerful card when it came to graphics. I bought the Sapphire ATI Radeon  HD 4890 Vapor-X. The Vapor-X is a special cooler design by Sapphire that is basically a block with the same principal as a heat-pipe.  I was very pleased by this card and as a matter of fact I still am. The only other parts I didn’t upgrade and still haven’t were the power supply and the case. I had already had a 700w Apevia PSU and an old Alienware full tower case.  I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 and overclocked it to 3885 mhz, and was set. Tell me what you think!
Right after build
