This build is a very simple computer, meant to run bingo software and keep the book for a concession stand. Nothing too crazy or interesting.

The original motherboard I picked out turned out to be DoA, but fortunately I had a spare one lying around.

I'm quite pleased with how the cable management turned out, and with luck I won't have to replace it for another 10 or so years.

A more detailed description please!

I'm guessing this is a HTPC? If so, you did a pretty good job on parts. Though you don't really need an i3 and 8gb of memory.

+1 for cable management and heaps of pics

My bad. This is a computer that they are going to use to run bingo software as well as keeping the books. The old one is a Windows XP build that funny enough was built by my dad.

What is the purpose of this build? The description wasn't very clear, or existing...

May I ask why you didn't do a build based on an AMD APU? At this price-point, it's only logical.

I agree on this, but then again, when all your doing is "Bingo" it's not a big deal

Could've shaved off some dollars though.

True

I think the AMD route could have been taken for a lot better price/performance ratio. Your motherboard is a little pricey for the CPU it uses and the ram was definitely overpaid for. Money didn't seem to be a focal point so I guess it's not that big of a deal.

I paid significantly less by abusing price matching at my local memory express. Plus, it wasn't me picking up the bill.
