    Looks like all that is remaining is the CPU and SSD/HDD...so consider this a CPU/Storage bump for the day.

    @Boatvan has pledged an SSD and a HDD for the build- only thing we really need now is the cpu. Some backup and AV software and a couple more newer games would be helpful as well :)

    Need to double check the posts made/PM's received and update the specs- hope to do that this evening but I have a deadline to meet for work first :fear:

    Glad to help towards a worthy cause! It's got a nice GPU for gaming, now we just need to find a nice CPU for crunching.

    Looks like the hardware is pretty much covered! Awesome. I guess if anything falls through, be sure to let us know so we can keep looking to help finalize the hardware.

    Only thing left @Norton has listed that they could use more of is:

    * more games/other software (i.e. backup, AV, office, etc..) would be great

    Otherwise, nice work everyone!

    I wonder if we are going to need case fans at all ....hmmmm.
    I'll go look in my storage unit sometime in the next couple days & see what I have there, pretty sure i kept some corsair & phanteks + scythe iirc.

    We should be all set- thanks for the offer! :)

    Specs for the PC are completed with the exception of maybe some additional software or other small items- will post an update sometime this evening.

    Thanks to everyone who donated and supported this build effort!!! :toast: :respect:
