This is my very first build and it took me a five months saving up for this. i'll use it for gaming at 1080p and simple 3D rendering stuff. My budget was $730. Parts in my country are BIT more expensive than the US so i'll have to downgrade to Ivy... :'(
i5 3470: A nice cpu and it's just enough for what i do.
Z77 Pro4M: I know - a locked cpu in a Z chipset. The other option is H77-Pro4M, but the price differences between these two are 1.5 dollars.......................
Corsair Value Ram: Nice ram and 8gb was recommended for me.
250gb hard drive: This is an OLD and a TEMPORARY hard drive. I WILL ADD AN SSD AND SOME MORE TERABYTES SOME DAY.
GTX 760: This is a great card. Some people were wondering why not Asus or Msi - These two brand cost a hundred dollars more than this Zotac one..... Anyways I get 5 years warranty and Batman XD.
N200: I love this chassis. I did my best in cable management and yes, you can route your 24pin cable through the back. The shop owner surprised me with a windowed version. Yay!
M12ii 520w: Appreciate modular power supplies. It makes assemble so simple. Just another great psu from Seasonic.
Any critics are much appreciated.
