In case anyone is curious… my build is uhh… let’s say it’s going slow. I ordered and received all my parts, only to realize I wanted different stuff. I’ve returned pretty much everything except my SSD, my Case, my monitors and my CPU. Here is the list of parts:

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 in Black Pearl w/ Window
CPU: AMD FX 6300 Black Edition
Mobo: ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 750
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Dual Channel 8GB (Low Profile)
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
Cooler: Corsair H90 (140 mm closed loop liquid cooler)
Fans: Corsair AF 140 x 6 (3 intakes and 3 exhausts)
PSU: Corsair AX760 (Fully modular)
Monitors: Acer H236HL 23″ x 2

I think this build is a REALLY good value all around. Sure… it’s eaten up HOURS of my life but hey… it’s fun. Anyway, I think this will allow me to be much more productive, save money long-term on computing and have one of the most epic /r/unixporn submissions ever.
