So, A week ago, I dropped 1600 on a new rig, and all the parts arrived a couple of days later. After much swearing, fiddling, and buying god damned Molex to 8 pin ATX power adaptors, I got it running. Windows is installed, and everything's running peachy, aside from the fact that windows doesn't recognise my second 1 TB storage drive, as I have windows installed on a 120GB SSD. The strange thing is, when windows was installing, it asked which drive I wanted to install it on, so it knows it's there, it just... doesn't?
Either way, I feel like I've made quite an accomplishment by building this thing by myself, and I expected alot more setbacks than this.
Also: System specs are: Intel Core i5 2500k
Asus P67 Sabertooth motherboard
nvidia GTX 570 Twin Frozr III GPU
2 x 2 GB Corsair vengeance RAM
Intel 320 120GB SSD
1 TB Seagate Hard drive
850 watt PSU, from my old rig, not sure about manufacturer or anything like that, didn't build it myself.
