    That's right, sorry I had forgot that you suggested that.

    I would like that, but at the moment I don't own any of those games and my current computer is to under power to play them, I can hardly get through Minecraft, without it crashing!

    Yesterday Philip, from PCPartPicker, posted a video on a $700 gaming build.I changed out the video card and added an optical drive, OS, and a monitor. So it's no longer $700, but it's still in my price range. What do you think? Intel Core i3-4130, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660, BitFenix Comrade - System Build - PCPartPicker

    P.S Nividia is giving away a free copy of Watch Dogs with the order of a new GTX 660 or higher video card!

    Looks good!


    Looks good! Here are a few I've built recently... The 3M Scotch pads are filters and they were sitting there temporarily... I put one of those in front of every fan to trap some of the duct and I clean them often...

    Wow! You've been busy! This is a little off subject, but have you ever set up triple boot on any of your computers?

    Does it all run pretty well? I'd like to have Windows 8.1, Hackintosh, and Linux Mint.

    I have dual booted operating systems but I never liked it so now I use VM's (VirtualBox) and I have about a dozen virtual machines, each a different OS that I test on. It's my job and my hobby....

    It runs pretty well but a Hackintosh is pretty advanced and requires a very certain CPU, GPU, RAM, ETC. I would not recommend a Hackintosh.

    But how to I know! I'm using AMD!

    I built a hackintosh once and considered it a huge waste of money, time and effort. About 5 years later, I bought a MacBook pro. I truly find the OS without the hardware experience to be disappointing.
