It’s the last major component in my New PC Build Project. Initially on ordering parts for the PC Build I had originally ordered a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 980Ti Extreme, but decided since my build likely wasn’t going to be finished till early summer I just decided to return the unopened box to Amazon and wait for the new GPU which was right around the corner anyway. So I’ve been patiently waiting for the brand new Pascal generation of Nvidia GPU’s which was unveiled yesterday May 6th 2016.
I’ll likely be putting in my order for a GTX 1080 as soon as when available for around $600. Word is it’s more powerful than the Titan X GPU. I just can’t wait.
I’ve been out of gaming entirely for almost two years! This is my very personal project to build my own Gaming PC Rig and get back into some gaming and other things. I’ve never built a computer before, but I thought it would be a good challenge and fun to do as a project. As well build the computer I want since it will be mostly for gaming overall.
After spending quite a bit of time researching on YouTube (few months) and on different PC forums I think it was time to at least get things started. This build will take some time! So it won’t be fast! Got some parts delivered from Amazon yesterday. Currently have about half the parts, (MSI Motherboard be here next Wednesday) minus all the Radiators and all the Water Cooling Components. Configuring the Water Cooling build will most likely be the most difficult part of the build with components and configuration.
After waiting almost 6 weeks to get the custom case so far I’ve mostly assembled the CaseLabs TH10A (Case Color: GunMetal) case which is HUGE and was a lot of fun to assemble. However In assembling it definitely gave me a huge appreciation of how well crafted in detail and assembled CaseLabs cases really are and can last a lifetime. Today have to head out to Micro Center, a little road trip to pickup the i7 6700K CPU which they have on sale for a good deal for $314 and also pick the EK CPU Water Block.
Hope this turns out to be fun, minus the hole in my pocket for one of my hobby.

It’s hard to be in PC gaming if you don’t have a gaming PC rig. I don’t current own a PC worthy of gaming in 2016. My MacBook Pro is about 8 years old now and though it works fine for just everyday stuff and surfing the internet, it’s not good for gaming in today’s world of gaming. I’ve been out of gaming for all of 2015. Been thinking about getting a new PC for quite a while now, months it seems but just couldn’t decide. Somehow after binge watching a lot of YouTube vids if I remember, I thought it might be a good idea to maybe build my own. But then I didn’t know much about building a PC let alone a gaming rig. I’ve never messed around with attempting to build a PC before either.
Over the course of the last month I’ve watched quite a bit of YouTube getting caught up on just how to go about building a PC and gaming rig watching all kinds of builds from many the YouTube personalities, some quite popular as well. I enjoyed watching a bunch of videos by Carey Holzman who now also does the DIY Garage for NeweggTV and a pleasure to watch build gaming rig and learn from. I’ve learned quite a bit in the process, but I’m still learning. Learning something new is always interesting. But I think I have the confidence that I can build my own and likely learn more in the process as well. If anything it seems like something fun to do being apart of gaming.
So after watching many builds I set aside part picking the parts for my own future gaming rig. I decided I didn’t exactly want a cheap PC. I wanted a good gaming rig that kicks ass, with good quality parts and can play anything on the market smoothly. I wanted a gaming PC where I’m not playing catchup with todays games and something that will last quite a few years without needing to upgrade much. As well something thats easily expandable into the future if I needed to upgrade. At this point I think this project will cost me more than I thought when I started out, but for my hobby I’ll be happy about it if it works out.
After picking out the parts for my Ultimate Gaming Rig on PCPartPicker this is what it looks like so far below on the link. I’m flexible in making changes if possible. Though the core parts I likely want in my build for my gaming be
Let me know what you guys think in the comments.
Not one the reason I supported the game since Kickstarter but as the game comes together, definitely something I can see enjoying in the persistent universe. I can see betting on racing or taking my Kruger P-72 Archimedes on haul to the racing circuit when time allows.
Definitely one the absolute best racing video’s I’ve seen for SC so far in Alpha.
My blog is just mainly about me playing online games and sometime RL while playing games. But I’ve always been a huge movie fan and a fan of watching good new release movies. As well I watch some online film talk about movies and their review. Often I mostly watch AMC Theaters Movie Talk for the latest news on YouTube, along with a few others if they are good to know whats coming soon. Reviewing Movies is not my kinda thing really… I just say if I like it or not. But gamers like movies too. In an age where you, yes you with your own passion can author and add your voice to the world of online media Blogs, Podcasts, YouTube Vid Channels as a Gamer. How exactly do you start or how exactly do you also start in the world of Online Film Review today?
I came across this Video watching AMC Movie Talk today. I decided to post it that someone else might find it of interest who may want to start a movie blog, video blog or YouTube Movie Review Channel. It’s not one their normal video or review at AMC Movie Talk. But because so many people keep asking the question John at AMC Movie Talk did a review about how does one get started in Online Film Reviews. It’s a bit long at almost 2 hours about the subject. But if its something that appeals to you, your likely to watch most of it for the interest or learn how to get started. Watching something for that long don’t bore me as i find all sorts of things interesting to learn. It struck me how much similar in some ways it is to just starting a blog about anything and sticking with it or maybe even starting your own Podcast, YouTube Channel if your really good at that kind of thing about gaming or movies.
I have no interest in starting a blog doing online film reviews. But who’s not to say you might be interested in that sort of thing or even starting your own blog about gaming, the advice is the same. There are never enough voices in blogging or video media! If your really good you will stand out in time if you stick with it and become a success. We all come and go everyday and for some of us our interest may change. But if starting a media blog doing online film review appeals to you, well the video might be of interest to you. Yet everything that’s mentioned in the video above… works for just starting a blog itself and being successful at it also. All great tips and information.
So if you’ve ever wanted to start an Online Media Blog, Podcast, Video Blog, YouTube Vid Channel, whether it be in Online Gaming or Online Movie Films Review… you have all the advice in the world to get started already. Just get started and get on with it.
