I wanted to start gaming again on PC so I put this together and over clocked it. I got all the parts from Microcenter. Their prices on the main components were better than online. The prices for the cooler and the PSU were more than what I would have paid online though.
Edit Thanks for all of the feedback / comments! I definitely need to straighten up the cables. It still feels like a work in progress. I was in a hurry to start playing Elite Dangerous.
Also, the name "Gaming Rig" may have been a little misleading, I want to use it for gaming, but I also do a lot of photo editing (Lightroom, HDR Efx Pro, Photoshop) and video editing with Premier. On my laptop, those programs eat up a lot of memory so I wanted to go high on the RAM.
If you're interested, here are the benchmarks from realbench.
