Looks to be the makings of a really nice PC this time around(again). excited to see Her completed
@Norton Hey I'm picking up shipping expenses again, Fedex FTW.
That's awesome (extremely generous yet again of you) , much appreciated
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
Spoiler: FedEx brought a goodie
Thanks To @JATownes
Very nice! Thanks @JATownes
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.
This is coming together nicely! It's so awesome seeing the community here really step up for a great cause
Giving this thread some love
Everything looks great @Norton
I certainly agree. It's always nice when a project comes together well
Thread bump- updates tonight
No luck on a cpu yet so I opened up a WTB thread for one in the FS section
Bump for a little CPU love.

WANT TO HELP?
Please post here to show your support. If you would like to donate to the build you can post or PM me with your offer!
Im hoping to be able to contribute some Funds towards the CPU cause @Norton , Ill need a week tho.
To The top You go !
cpu has been found- details TBA soon
Thanks to the search skills of @thebluebumblebee and some purchasing assistance from a few members we have a BNIB Core i7-4770S for the build.
@Norton, are you still looking for a keyboard?
If he wants to donate one that is fine too. I have some, but I am not trying to keep others for donating what they want!
to the Top!
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!!!
