Journey of a Gaming PC ~ Part 1

Faithful readers of my blog (the few of you that there are) may remember that I'm SUPER excited about my upcoming Gaming PC build I am doing. My journey began today, when I purchased all the components that I need for my PC! I am super excited to be able to build this gaming PC. While it'll take away some of my reading time (ok, a LOT) I do love gaming as well. :)

I'm so grateful to my Hubby who bought these for me. I've been researching tons for the past few months, getting the best build I could, for what I could spend.

I know this won't mean much to most of you, but for any of the computer geeks (I say that with love) I thought you might wanna see what I'm going to be up to. My case is above, and as for the rest of my parts ~

CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: MSI Z97-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda ES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: MSI Radeon R9 270X 2GB TWIN FROZR Video Card
Case: DIYPC Solar-M1-R ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified

Now I just wish it was HERE already. It's going to be hard waiting on that last part to arrive. Hopefully it'll all come quickly!! I hope you'll check back with me as I update you all on my parts as they come in and my rig as I build it!!

And, it's already named! :) Anyone wanna guess what my gaming PC will be called? Take a few guesses, and next time, I'll give a hint. :)

See ya all tomorrow for the first update of "Love of Books" Read-a-Thon. Gotta get in some books before all my time is spent elsewhere! :)

Journey of a Gaming PC ~ Part 2 ~ Waiting is Torture


  1. Nooo idea on your compy's name. Hints, please!

    Also, AHHH! I am so excited to (maybe?) get to play some games with you! You're going to love it.

    1. Hint ~ it's from a book ~ though not one you've read, so you probably won't figure it out :(

      Would love to play some games with you! :)

  2. So exciting that you're getting your own gaming pc! My boyfriend is planning to built his own gaming pc this summer. Although all the technical terms don't tell me much as I am not that knowledgeable. I usually ask other people for help when it comes to whcih computer to buy. I got a new pc last year and I am still really happy with how it performs and how I can play much more games then before and they look better.
