Hi,

I'm new as a poster on the forum, but I'm a frequent reader. I'm about to place an order on NewEgg for my new gaming machine, and it would be great to get your feedback on my build. It was 1-2 years since I built my old computer and things change so quickly so I probably have made a few mistakes (oversized on some parts and undersized on others).

Thanks for your feedback!

Hi mate and welcome, sorry for the delay.

Have you gone ahead with this yet? This looks like quite a serious build and I wouldn't mind suggesting some changes if it's not too late.

Regards,

Troy
