Initially I'll play Far Cry 4, Battlefield 4, Day Z, and GTA 5 when it comes out at the end of Jan 2015. I also plan on using this with Adobe after effects or similar video editing software.
It's been 7 years since I last built a PC, so I had a few beginner questions - like what connectors do I use for these PCIe connections on the video card and locating pins on the motherboard for the chassis wiring. So I'm taking it slow, reading the manuals and watching a lot of YouTube videos as I go.
I haven't powered it up yet - that will be tomorrow!
Wow - No Magic smoke was released! everything worked the 1st time, except one of the power cables wasn't supplying the expected wattage, so I ended up using the molex to pcie adapter cable.
I had to stop for a couple of days while AT&T upgraded my dSL to U-Verse - no internet connection meant no patches etc.
