First of all thank you very much guys for your help. I have had no idea what to buy so your tips were essential! These are all the users that helped me:

Thank you again!

Now to the computer. 1) Price: It is possible that you can buy the same parts for much better price... Well I couldn't. I am Czech and here are just 3 major e-shops, where you can order these parts... the prices are everywhere almost the same. Amazon doesn't exist here and Ebay works just in Germany and that would mean to wait at least 10 days for the shipping + future complications with the warranty.

2) Build: It really was my first time and it also looked like it. I was trying to build it for almost 9 hours. After that I finally managed to install the OS (1:30 AM)... unluckily not even 30 minutes from installing all the needed drivers the PC got infectet with E-shield (Trojan horse) and so I decided to reinstall it, format all the hard drives, because there was no other quicker solution to it... Apropos I have already installed Avast and the only other two programms I downloaded and installed were Mozilla FireFox and KMPlayer - all from official websited... so I still don't know how I could happen, maybe some of the drivers were infected (had to download them from the official MSI page and boot them from a flash drive) It looks like it works properly now. But connecting all the cables and puting all the parts together was a nightmare. It really sucks, when you don't know how much force you can apply to put something together... for instance the CPU into the motherboard or the PSU cabels - not all of them make the "click" sound. However if it will remain at it's current state I find it a very interessting experience.

3) Cable management: I finally understood why almost everybody recommended me to buy a modular PSU. Yes, it was a huge pain to hide all the unused cabels. It doesn't look good anyway, eventhough I was trying pretty hard, but same of the cabels were just too short and I wasn't able to do it other way.

I hope I will find a way to add some photos.

I think you did very well !!

I am thinking you might be able to move the HDD (Western Digital) to the bottom hard drive cage and remove the middle cage for better air flow to the graphic card.

Well done +1

Ok, I think I can manage that :D. Thank you for the tip! Do you think it's possible to change the sata ports after the Windows installation? I accidentally put the WD HDD in SATA 1 and SSD in SATA 2 and the system is booting always at first from the SATA 1, even though it is installed on the SSD...weird

Yes of course you can move the drives from one SATA connector to another.

You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS though and it's not recommended to have any HDD other than the one you are installing the OS on, plugged into your PC when you do install the OS. If you have more than one drive plugged in when you install the OS, you may end up needing BOTH to boot the PC. So if you move or change one or one dies, you lose the ability to boot your PC.

Check your BIOS' boot options anyway.

Very occasionally and mainly old/older games like Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and 4, Age of Empires III, Chivalry,... Maybe I will have some spare time before the Uni begins, but during the year I don't play at all.

CAN YOU RUN MINECRAFT AT ULTRA SETTINGS? lol jk But seriously what games did u test with your sexy *** computer. Also http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rY8qMp is this a good build? Im Saving up to build it.

The only game I played was Chivalry Medival Warfare... it automatically selected the highest settings and it ran smoothly. Your build looks kinda like mine. I still don't know much about particular parts, I recommend you contact the guys I mentioned. They all responded in less than 10 hours and every last one of them were really happy to be able to help me. I bet you will have the same experience here. EDIT: Just your power supply might be too low for the graphic card...

if your going to get a case with a window, might as well show it off...see how it looks on the other side of the monitor

  • 57 months ago

I was going to, but the case isn't done very ideal... The glass is on the opposite side from the power buttons and the USB connectors, so I woundn't be able to use them as easily as I am able now. The other thing is that I am not very much proud of the cable management - even though I really was trying, due to my lack of skill and the short length of the cabels it doesn't look very nice... or at least I am not very happy with that so seeing my failure more often isn't something I am looking necessarily for. So why did I bought a case with a glass window? I wasn't going to :D, but the one I wanted stop selling a day before I made the purchase. This one was very simillar - price, color, mark, good references so I bought it.

Nice build man, all your efforts was not for nothing ! This is looking really good for a non-modular PSU

Opinion on the motherboard? It's the last component to my build and doesn't have many reviews.

  • 56 months ago

Sorry but I don't know what to say about it. It works just fine and it wasn't that difficult to connect the cabels to it. It might lack some ports, but I don't need those so it's fine for the things I need.

Your SSD is making me cringe... you should've gone for a crucial or Samsung drive. Other than that nice build

A lot of people told me that too, but on the other hand a lot said that it's a good one as well... + it was the most frequently bought one in the shop I was buying from. Can I ask you, where is the difference? Speed? Price? (The prices were all the the same in the e-shop.)

People say you don't need an after market for those types of CPUs... They lied.... That fan makes too much noise and creates air friction creating heat in the case making your Computer components .... die quickly.

Decent build but that PSU is a bit meh. I hope you don't end up having any problems with it and if you do I hope it doesn't hurt your other components. One thing you could do is maybe get a better CPU cooler. There are some amazing coolers for only about $35 that will be much better than the stock one.

Also is that an SM58 mic? Classic!

EDIT: Woah the skull on the desk is creepy dude!

CPU cooler is something that I will have to consider buying... The PC doesn't make much noise in comparison to my old laptop, but if you guys say that it might cause overheating... Yes it is a SM58 :D and the skull was a need for the study and with relief said - it will be a need in the second year as well =). EDIT: creepy? :D you should see it without the hat! With it it almost looks like it's smiling... or rather he if I determine that correctly.

That skull is 2spooky4me but still nice Mic! Those SM58's are really good value. Do you sing?

Definitely get a cooler. They're really important, even on a locked processor :)

I rule the Karaokeparty =D Just kidding (...I don't rule it :D), I needed a bit more decent mic for some videos with physical experiments for one competition. It paid off :)
