I would like to thank ASUS, Intel, Razer, Nvidia, Gskill, Antec for providing all of the awesome hardware! This is seriously an incredible contest!
WARNING LOTS OF PHOTOS! I DID A STEP BY STEP GUIDE/REVIEW/WORKLOG. BE PREPARED
So first of all my end goal is to build a home arcade system to play Streetfighter 4 in 3D along with other games! So here it goes!
Here are the goodies!
Antec 850 quattro! this is sexy
it came with tons of modular accessories!
and this heavy duty PSU!
Next up is the ASUS GTX260 from Nvidia!
This unit is different from traditional reference design boards that competitors usually offer. it has a 5.8OZ copper heatsink. ASUS does always does an awesome job engineering their own cards to take a reference card to the next level. although its not better than the top, its still better than referance.
Its great to see all the goodies it came with but i wont need any of it.
and here it is!
These spring screws make it easy for watercooling upgrades. im assuming this is why ASUS sent us this card vs referance. its better and easier to modify!
i took it apart to apply higher quality thermal paste but i may go water soon...
thanks for the ROG shirt!
the SSD from Samsung came on a 3.5inch bracket but i wont need it
128GB SSD from samsung! BLING BLING
