New/first build!

I've always wanted to build my own gaming PC. Now, I'm going to do so.

Here's a list of components: TOTAL $1,116.89

MSI was nice enough to provide me the motherboard and the GPU.

Any thoughts on it? Can't wait to get everything!

I would always lean towards a Corsiar, Seasonic or Antec power supply.

Yeah, I should have, but oh well. Looks good, decent price. I think I've used their PSUs before when doing some small repair work for some people. I think 750W was a bit too much. Wasn't sure, so I went for 750W anyway .

I'd go for a Cooler Master case and perhaps a bit more memory. The memory isn't needed but the gaming computers I've seen tend to have 16+GB RAM.

Looks good. Like Skulblaka, I'm not so keen on the case, but you gotta build it.
Hope you've got a decent IPS panel monitor in mind to do justice to all this goodness. See: Viewsonic VP2365wb

I'm still rocking my Acer P244W. Love it . Don't really feel the need for a better display.

I was a bit hesitant with the case, but maybe it's one of those products that look better in person . Just wish it didn't have the USB 3.0 cable hanging out of the back. Wish it used an internal header or something.

UPDATE! Just finished getting everything put together. Working on getting all the drivers and whatnot installed onto Windows 7 Professional (x64, SP1).

Here are a few pics:


For being my first build EVER, I'd say that I did pretty good . Cables could've been neater if I used a modular PSU, but I shoved all the extra crap behind the other side panel.

Looks good for your first time, what I have learned is that the foundations of the system is pretty important. Meaning, you want to have the space and capacity of the hardware for future upgrades.

Going forward, just so you know, Rosewill is the Newegg product brand.
Hopefully the PSU, will last as long as some of the name brands.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
