Description

Built it to try out computer gaming. Copied another user's build but I can't find it to credit the original builder.

Brief Random notes:

even though the case was only $40 the build quality wasn't great.

I probably plugged in and unplugged the video card 8 times during the build.

Question for the people: what is the easiest way to compare my build to a comparable dell or hp computer (price wise)?

you probably want to go into disk manager and it should be shown as "unallocated". just create a drive using the unallocated space, and it should be fine

Corsair, XFX and PC Power and Cooling Silence - which is now owned by OCZ have Seasonic Make their guts for a lot of their PSUs this PSU is specifically made by Seasonic and rebranded by Power and Cooling. It is an amazing quality PSU for being modular at this price point and is great for a single card solution.

Did you format/primary partition the drive? That sounds like the issue to me

600W seems like a bit much, but it's not a big deal. Gives you some nice headroom. Great job! :D

If you want to compare this to a Dell computer go and configure one with similar specs on their site. It'll be pretty hard because Dell is very limited part wise, but you could do it just to get a general idea. You'll probably want to compare it to an low/mid range Alienware (made by dell)
