The Fellowship of the Rig

Steamhawke / Jan 28, 2014
Merry Christmas, everybody!

To help me pursue my dreams of being an online stripper gamer, my awesome girlfriend has helped me purchase the components for a brand new rig. After her cat spilled milk all over her laptop, she has been in need of a new computer, and figured she'd try a desktop instead of a laptop this time. So I'm cleaning up my current, respectable machine to give to her, and building a fancy new box to bring you the latest and greatest plays in 2014.

In tune with the world's constant shift to make electronics smaller, yet more powerful, I've assembled a pretty beastly build using a Mini ITX case and motherboard as the base. All of the components have arrived, and I'm ready to start cramming everything into its tiny form factor. Here's where we're at now:

Case: CoolerMaster Elite 130
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87N - WIFI
Power Supply: Seasonic G Series 550W
Processor:Intel Core i5-4670K (3.5Ghz)
CPU Cooler: CoolerMaster Seidon 120M
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaw - 1600 (16GB)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC
Solid-State Drive: Samsung 840 EVO (250GB)
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda (2TB)
Optical Drive: LG DVD Burner (Because I still burn CDs/DvDs)
