Oldie but a Newbie

Evening all, Names Ken, but most people call me Mountaineer as I am very dedicated to my favorite college football team the West Virginia Mountaineers. Been a member of the forums for several years, but I've always been one of those lurkers in the background. A little about myself: I'm a Dairy Dept. Manager at one of my local Walmarts and I actually like my job. I'm an avid fisherman, hunter and spend a lot of my summer camping.

I've been building pc's for about 15-20 yrs, but everything I've done to this point have always been a cheap as I could go to play current games. I think the most I've ever spent on a PC is around $600 US and I've always build AMD systems. I've never even owned an Intel CPU. That is until now. I decided it was finally time to step up and run with the big boys and just ordered a 7700k. The new build is gonna take me a few months to get my parts together but I will be doing a full build log when I get all my parts. I'll be making some other posts throughout the forums just to get some opinions and input for the new build as well.

G'day Welcome to the forums and it's a shame you went 7700k as the new AMD Zen cpu's are due out and for the same price point maybe you could of had the performance of an 8 core 6900k processor in an 8 core AMD
