Gaming machine; built top replace my old gaming rig. Got to love microcenter's 2 year "we replace it no matter what's wrong" purchase add on
My first build was with a 3rd gen i5, with the Z77 Mpower mobo, and a GTX 690, as seen form the older pictures. Something happened, I have no idea what, that caused the GFX card and mobo to die, and killing the i5 with it. (No idea = clocked everything way to high way too fast cause I was greedy for that speed...) Within my return period, I traded out the MPower and the i5 ivy for the GD65 and the i7 Haswell, and the 690 for 2x 780's. 200 bucks more, but I am much happier with the results.
My first GD-65 board was dead right out of the box, but there was no trouble with the return, and I got extra SATA cables and a second super sweet dragon case badge.
The Apple Display I have is the 30 inch 2560x1600 matte finish aluminum screen, not the new fancy pants ridiculous amounts of glare glass one. It wasn't available on the list, though.
