My Tier 9 build w/pics - FltSim57 - 04-03-2012

I finished my build about two weeks ago and amazingly still runs great. What a performance machine and I build it my self? Its amazing how gratifying it is to say I build it myself Cool
Anyway thanks again to all who helped me out and a special thanks to MathieuB for having available a site like this to help us with any questions.
I had no problems at all (surprisingly)There were moments that I wasn't sure if something is right or not but it turned out good. I took a few photos....sorry they are not that great .

As far as running Flight simulator X on this thing I am amazed how well it runs now even loaded with some 15-20 or so addons.Wink

The only thing I would change next time is get a bigger SSD. I had to re install Flight sim on The hdd with 2TB. 180 GB not enough for th OS and FSX. But I installed the Adobe Master Suite on there and the speed now is awsome.

Congratulations on your new build and what a build it is!

"Its amazing how gratifying it is to say I build it myself"
I know, right? Big Grin

Thank you MathieuB for all your help and for making picking hardware an easy task with your Tier system.

Now that I know what to expect and backed with your expert guides I want to build a pc for my friend . He is looking for something in the lower Tier section. He is not interested in gaming.

Looks great, Congrats on the successful build!


RE: My Tier 9 build w/pics - Brandonsr - 04-04-2012

awesome build!!! Have you played any games in eyefinity yet?


RE: My Tier 9 build w/pics - FltSim57 - 04-04-2012

Thanks guys and poppy yes I played Battlefield 3 but mostly Flight Simulator X. Battlefield 3 looks and performs amazingly....but I think Flight Simulator X is the real test on any computer build because it is the most demanding program I think.

Beautiful. Congrats man. I know it may be posted elsewhere in the forums, but what components did your build include? I can see a few from the photo but not everything.


RE: My Tier 9 build w/pics - FltSim57 - 04-04-2012

I follow the suggestions from Tier 9 orange but I change the video card to the Saphire 7970 card and went with the i7 2600K cpu and the Case I prefered the Cooler master HAF X.


RE: My Tier 9 build w/pics - mattr4569 - 04-04-2012

How do you like the case? I'm thinking of using the HAF 932 for my build and I know it is similar to the HAF X.
