Built for daytrading markets. Needed to be fast and support multiple monitors. Computer is fast and serves its purpose to a charm :)
Perhaps a bit overkill for a non-gaming application. Are you sure you do not have intentions of gaming this thing a bit down the road?
Overall, your build appears to be more light gaming than major office function. It should serve you well and have a lot of un-tapped potential if you want to do other things.
The Radeon cards work a lot better for multi-monitor display but nice build
Thanks for all the positive comments! haha.. This was my first build, I really don't care about prices. Honestly I just needed a new computer, and wanted the experience of building one.
Thanks for the ideas on future builds
hey I just got the same case . how does the front led come on I see one molex connector but only have 2 wires connected to it. does that power both?
How's the case?
Micro ATX isn't that bad. Low price for budget builds, though it does have very few upgrade abilities. Since he got a locked processor and h77 motherboard, he's obviously not overclocking, thus the i5-3470 which performs nearly the same with an i5-3570k at stock. The RAM difference is negligible and prices might have changed since he bought it. The Crucial M4 is better than the Samsung 840 since the 840 is tlc. This build is actually a nice one for the price.
Thanks, you nailed the reasoning on the cpu, ssd, and RAM decisions! Thanks for the positive comments
Meh, I was just saying it could have been cheaper, yet equal (or better) in performance.
What? ATX board and i5-3570k cost more than the money you save from ram and SSD.
Oh really? Is 51 cents really that big of an issue?

Does the OP live near a microcenter? Online prices for the i5-3570k are like $20 more. Even if he did, the microcenter price for the 3470 is $40 cheaper than online, thus making the price difference between the two even bigger.
"No offense but your build is terrible"..really dude, you can't just say something negative and then say no offense like it changes something..lol
Reminds me of Talladega Nights. "With all due respect, sir." xD
