I've been anti-PC gaming for a few years now, but recently got the itch to build a new rig again
. I'd have preferred to wait a bit to see what happens with the Intel Core i chips, Windows 7 and DX11 GPU's - but the laptop I use every day has started to overheat, so I thought what the hell - let's get me some PC gaming goodness!
Some of the bits - like the PSU are hugely overkill for the rig, but I got a sweet deal on that PSU, and it leaves me headroom to add another couple of GPU's in the future.
If anyone is interested in a step by step guide on building a rig, I'd be happy to photo my build and stick it on a Google site or something.
