Custom build!

I'm baaaack! I finally managed to get my computer built. It still needs its own RAM (I'm borrowing one of Kalli's 4gb cards) but it liiives. I made it from the following items:
* Apevia X-Dreamer 4: Pink case
* Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard
* Intel Core i3-3220 Dual-Core processor
* Asus LED monitor (purchased first, actually, because the former was essentially junk)
* Corsair Builder Series CX 600 power supply

So yeah. It's up; I'm using it right now! I already had the keyboard/mouse/speakers on hand. Kalli solved the mystery of why shit wasn't running properly yesterday, though neither of us have managed to fix the motherboard's inability to recognize its LAN port. I think it might be dead, but everything else is so nice that I honestly can't be bothered with going through returns. Kalli loaned me her wireless card and since we've got a wireless router here in the room my internet speeds are perfect. I'm not using it for gaming. If I need a direct line I'll just use one of these.

In short: this is why I haven't been doing much with dolls lately. I needed to finish my custom build! (College, also.) Besides, I'm pleased that I got nearly every item on the above list for at least $20 less than it's currently listed for. I hit the after-Christmas sales. ;)
