Description

My first build. Intended as a low budget work PC. Used this website for most of the information on choosing these parts. Thank you all.

Mainly for programming, browsing, streaming videos, occasional photo editing.

Future upgrade with an SSD.

Monitor, Keyboard, mouse, bluray drive all available from an old system.

$550 - total price after I get all MIR and cash back.

Looks good! However, unless you don't care about the aesthetics of your builds, the fan on the window was a poor choice. Wire hanging out like that bug me personally :p

If you pulled the power supply cables straight up for more management, you may be able to put the fan between the power supply and HDD cages :) It also appears you have a spot to put it at the top :)

Thank you. I seldom opens the case, also it does not have a side panel window. Side fan is 180mm, so I doubt if it will fit the top or the bottom spots as you suggested.

Yes I see :( Nothing but a little modding to the case ;)

When I first built mine in a cheap case with a cheap power supply, (but with high end hardware, its now in a full build) I modded the case a little bit to fit everything I needed. The PSU wouldnt even fit in it, but there is always the chance of modding :)

Personally I would have bought a 212 EVO for the bit of extra cash, and bought a 2 TB HDD. That's just me though.

Regardless, very good choices. If you don't really game very much on the system I would've gotten an APU but they aren't the greatest when it comes to CPU intensive things as far as I know.

So either way, +1~

Thank you. I have to remove the side fan to fit Evo, so thought of trying with this. so far its good and very quite for my needs.

If you ever get the money, you should get another radeon 7770 to do some Crossfire, it will play games a lot smoother.

Looks really good. I'm hoping to make my first gaming build with this case.

Thanks. The case is really good. 4 fans, dust filters, memory card slot and good looking. Not had any issues yet. All for 30$ if I get the rebate.

How did you connect all the fans on this case? my fans have two molex and two 3 pin fans.

I know. I was in a hurry and that was the only one available in nearby bestbuy, couldn't wait for shipping.

I hate when I'm stuck in situations like that... Great build though!
