    Ok I finally got my parts in today for my new build. Iv replaced every part of a computer before however this is my first build from the ground up. So I want some input from the TPU community as to what I should name my system. Here are the specs.

    Case: Ultra m998
    PSU: Corsair 750
    Mobo: MSI DKA790GX "Platinum"
    CPU: AMD 8650
    Cooling: Thermaltake "V1"
    RAM: 4 gigs Patriot "Viper" 8500
    GPU: Visiontek ATI 4850

    Now I'v included a few names in the poll which I kinda liked but I'm open to suggestions. Also what do you guys think of my system thus far?

    I like it. I just don't think its worthy of the title. After all it only has a 8650.
    Asylum says thanks.

    How about the Paraplegic Dragon, since it only has 3 cores on the proc and 1 4000 series graphics card.

    "E-Mail" would be sufficient to describe the functionality of the system :D

    I think it's a little more powerful than just an e-mail system. Its for gaming. Not benchmarks.

    But seriously, being creative?

    "Expressmail"
    "UPS" (Ultimate Postal System)

    hmm I guess I could go on like that ;)

    The FX SB is slower.
    Simply because I plan on getting a PII in a few months. Didn't want to spend to much money now. FYI I got everything I listed for 450 bucks. Someone I work with also works at Tiger Direct here in Miami.

    Thats a cool idea man. I just don't like that show. The wife is HOT however.
    Exavier says thanks.

    You should call your system "Blond haired buttercream frosted murder cake!"
