I have been meaning to build a new PC for a while. Moving to the USA kinda slowed down the start. I will update this thread as things progress but the first two parts are expected to be delivered next week. A Corsair HX850i PSU and a Corsair 780T case. 

Next up will be the motherboard, memory and CPU. But pay day will have to come first. I will add pics once bits arrive and asee it gets built too. My keyboard for it came all the way from the UK. A Corsair K70 RGB, as I couldn't be doing with a crappy US layout keyboard.

Yep. Already seeing a difference in price. Also gotta love US delivery ETA'so. They say Monday... but FedEx said it should arrive tomorrow. In the UK it would arive 2 weeks later with them saying they tried to deliver 3 times before that...

SKALLE, YOU CAN STOP MOANING AT ME TO START BUILDING IT NOW... Hopefully a few more bits will arrive in the next week or two though.

Haven't updated in a while as I have been busy, but a few weeks back I got these two...

And then today I came home to what I can only describe as a big box full of what felt like Christmas in October...

There was also a 2TB WD Black HDD which isn't in the photo that arrived.

So I will be putting everything together over the weekend when I find the time to actually concentrate on it all as we have family coming into town as well. But all the needed parts are here in time for some Battlefield 1.

Just a couple of pics from yesterday...

Now the fun starts. Going from barely hitting 30fps, sometimes as low as 12fps over the last 6-9months (if not longer) in Battlefield 4 at points to being at 200+ is a nice change, that is for sure. My GPU in my old computer was definitely dying a slow death. Just need install mumble and sort out a new headset now so I can join you guys at the weekends in BF1 or Kermz at night after I get back from work, as he never sleeps anyways!
