this is my first build, ever! my old computer was a 500$ laptop that had a broken screen so I used it as a desktop. it got a lot of viruses after two years and it cant run any games besides payday 2 on low (extremely laggy) fallout new vegas on medium (with some lag) and minecraft on medium low. so I was looking into buying a desktop for 800$ my friend told me that I could build one that was 3X better for 100$ less. I wanted to prove him wrong so I started doing some research and needless to say he was right. after months of research I began making money and buying this thing part by part. I am now awaiting the arrival of the graphics card next week to finish it up. (please note that I have no clue what I'm doing outside of all the youtube videos I have watched.) if you have any suggestions feel free to tell me because I need all the help I can get!
please excuse the picture quality I used my ipad mini, (that has an ok camera,) and a desk lamp for lighting
if you are wondering why i have windows 8 for free; my friend, (the one who told me to build a computer,) is getting one from his uncle for me because his uncle works at some business and they have extras.
also you can't buy the gpu I got for the same price because the day after i bought it, it was discontinued on newegg.
(Update) I did some cable management and it looks much better now! thank you everyone for you suggestions
Update graphics card is here I will post pictures ASAP
