And the build continues….

I picked a case finally! I went with Fractal Design’s Define R4, and it is such a nice solid case.  very minimal in design, yet it stands out.  I was very pleased with the quality, and the like, and just the overall attention to detail on the case.  I have photos I will post up soon, as well as nice little write up.  I also purchased PC Power and Cooling’s Silencer MK III.  It matches up perfectly with the interior of the case, w/ it’s white paint scheme, going well with the Defines white drive cages, and slot covers.  It also helps that the case was on sale at Microcenter, which I was able to pick up, and the PSU was also on sale.  Saved a good $60.00 or so.

And lastly, I picked out a video card.  My new rig will be visually powered by an HIS H785F2G2M Radeon 7850, with 2 GB of GDDR5 RAM.  It has a perfect 5 eggs in it’s user ratings, and for under $200.00, it’s a great value.  I cannot wait to get it all fully up and running.  I will list down my full specs on this rig, as well as thoughts on performance.  Maybe some benchmarks.
