    Hello everyone, my name is Blake and I just joined a few days ago. I was referred here by GLC from another forum, I am fairly new to computer building but am very interested in it, I built my first PC about 4 years ago and have been hooked ever since. I am 25 years old and have been married for 2 years now, we have our first child on the way so of course computer money is now getting cut down :D . I run a family business, we manufacture greyhound products and have been going since the early 90's. I just recently also started building computers in my spare time for other people, and I also do some computer repair and recovery. I just finished up my latest build about a month ago, my first gaming rig and I am already working on upgrading the GPU because I didn't go big enough. My rig consist of
    Case: Thermaltake v9 black edition
    Board: DP55wb
    Processor: I7-875k OC 4ghz
    Memory: Kingston ddr3 1333 8gb
    Graphics card: Asus GTS 450 Soon to be a GTX 560
    CPU cooler: Zerotherm core92
    HDD intel 40gb SSD, 2 Seagate 7200 rpm 1tb drives
    PSU: Coolmax CUG-950B Not sure about but performing well so far.
    Display: Panasonic 32" 1080p HDTV
    Gaming Mouse: Razer Lachesis

    I bought the Board, Processor and SSD through intel's channel partner program as a package for around $275, I will probably upgrade the board but I figured I might as well get some use out of it. I love the EFI boot feature it has, it just doesn't offer much in the way of overclocking features. Anyway enough about me, I look forward to getting to know you guys better and to learn a thing or to.

    Thanks GLC, I posted it twice because I didn't see the message about it needing approval first. Also thanks for the site recommendation, I have already learned quite a bit from just reading.

    Usually posts do not need approval - yours got caught in the spam filter for certain terms you used in your post. The only notification we get when that happens is in our admin forum.
