This is NOT a gaming PC. If you are looking to build a GAMING PC, please see my latest video here:

How to Build a Gaming PC - November 2012
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCohS...

As requested, this is a new computer build for 2012. A step-by-step walk-through of how to build a computer using components available in February, 2012.

This machine was built for a customer that wanted a FAST computer, NOT a gaming computer. However, if you add a video card (or two with the SLI cable included with the motherboard) this would be one heck of a gaming PC.

The customer wants to use two monitors at the same time and this motherboards built-in video controller (as well the HD video chip included inside of the Intel CPU) allows for one monitor to be plugged into the motherboards VGA port, and another monitor to be plugged into the motherboards DVI port.

This video was completely edited, rendered and then posted to YouTube using the computer built in this video.

Filming required two days. Editing required 3 days. Rendering required 3.5 hours, uploading was 6 hours and YouTube processing was 5 hours.
