This is the first build I have done in a very long time.. Goals are for gaming and some video/image editing on the side. At the time of this posting I haven't ordered anything yet but I have the build list ready to go. Just waiting for my tax returns to hit and I'm off to go shopping!

I call this project, Hydra - because of the multiple monitors I will have and my fascination with dragons. I realize the PSU is "overkill" to start with, but I plan to add an additional video card just for kicks
