Greetings OC3D!

After wanting to do it for a VERY long time, I'm finally putting together my first build. I'm going for a medium to high end gaming rig with a blue and black color scheme. Here's my wishlist for parts so far:

http://secure.newegg...Number=16600391

Along with these parts, I am getting some BitFenix Spectre Pro Blue LED fans, some Alchemy cable extensions (again, in blue), and maybe some LEDs.

I already have the 650D case, the 850W PSU, the G-SKILL Memory, and the Vertex 4 SSD. The reason it's been taking me so long to get these parts together is I am just waiting for deals on everything (for example, I know the 850W is overkill for this build but I got it for a GREAT deal). Hopefully I will have all the parts accumulated by the end of June and will be able to get my build together shortly after! Any feedback/suggestions are welcome, and I'll try to keep this post updated with pictures if you are interested! I am going to put A LOT of time into this thing and can almost guarantee it will look amazing!

PS: This was my first post, so take this as an introduction as well

Nice overview of the case



Power supply in the case, waiting for the rest of the hardware:



Side view:



RAM waiting for a motherboard:



SSD box (SSD is currently in my laptop until I can use it in this build):



A crappy picture of where I think I have to put the case (don't think there's enough room under my desk, case is bigger than I thought):

Money is tight, and I don't plan on doing any serious overclocking so I don't need anything too crazy.

EDIT: Just added some pictures if anyone wants to see what I have so far.

I'm setting up a custom water loop eventually so I won't need your n00b closed loop H100 Haha your build looks awesome man, can't wait until I can get mine together!

PS: Anyone got any build-name ideas? I'm thinking something to do with night/dusk/something blue.

I'm looking for build names, not the name of the next book in the Twilight series! I kid I kid, in all seriousness I don't think I'll really name it unless I come up with something really clever, I've never been one to do that sort of thing. Thanks for the help!
