Description

I really do regret getting some of the items I did. I should have waited a while longer so I could think more and get a REALLY GOOD Gaming Desktop. Overall though, it is a really good computer. I usually play Call of Duty and occasionally planetside 2.

Reasons why I choose the parts

I chose the i7 4770 because I really never wanted to overclock my cpu because it reduces the life span of the cpu. MSI Z87-G45 gaming motherboard is really good and works perfectly fine. I love msi's bios menu. Really easy to understand. The G Skill Ripjaws X 16gb is really good and makes my programs run really fast. The 1tb hard drive is really good. Sadly it only gave me a 5 .9 on the windows experience index. The MSI GTX760 is amazing. I love how you can overclock it, put it on silent mode and overall is really nice and quiet. Same goes with the Corsair CX750. Cable managment might not be the best and I REGRET NOT GETTING THE CX750M but overall it is quiet and easily powers up all my devices. Asus VX-238H-W is a really nice monitor. I use it for my computer and my xbox. The quality is really crisp and clean. I also love the response time. I should have gotten a corsair gaming keyboard and mouse. I tried it at a friends home, was so comfortable and felt really nice. The keyboard and mouse that I have aren't that bad.

If I could get all that money back, I would definitely spend it on this build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2nYhx. ALL COMMENTS ARE APPRECIATED AND ARE READ.

Like others said, cable management straight sux. Fix it if you're going to sell. Be proud of your build and display that pride.

I just feel like nobody would pay $1350 for this. I'm assuming you aren't including monitor, plus the cable management kinda stinks even though the case is a really good one for that. I feel like you could have done so much more for your purposes, but you just didn't do your research.

By the way, for the games you play/things you do, you REALLY didn't need an i7, plus you got a Z87 (overclocking) motherboard although you said you didn't do that, and lastly the PSU is way overkill for the build.

Good luck selling it and getting a new one.

The Z87 chipset is useful for many things, not just overclocking.

Please, Please, PLEASE, If you selling this fix the cable management. I don't want to be rude but it's terrible. I don't think you ran any of the cable through the gromits behind the mobo tray. Especially with a viewing window in the side of the case it looks REALLY bad. I know it's a pain with a non modular PSU, but if you want a good reputation as a professional when its comes to building, cable management is #1. I like your choice of parts. A 4770 is kind of pushing the boundary of a budget build. In the future I would suggest a cheaper intel CPU and throw the extra cash into an SSD. I would say an SSD should be a crucial part of any build (min 120Gb). Other than the cable management it's a good build. But the cabling takes it from good to terrible.

Fix the cable management if you are selling this, especially since this thing has a window.

I'm not sure if you're aware, but there's a whole other side panel that you can take off to hide some of your cables. One more thing... It feels weird seeing a build at this price with quality parts, but no SSD.

MSI has a H87 version of your motherboard with the same color scheme and layout that would have been more suitable for a non k series processor. In a nutshell though, Z87 has CPU overclocking and can run triple (3 GPU) SLI/Crossfire while H87 lacks CPU overclocking and can only do run normal (2 GPU) SLI/Crossfire configurations. H87 also has fewer port options which may be a deal breaker for some.

I understand a lot of people are saying my cable managment sucks. I do agree but I want to ask you guys that if I unplug everything and then try to make it a cleaner job, will anything get ruined in the proccess?

Dissasembly and reassembly should not cause any damage to your PC. I've done it to mine several times for upgrades through out the years.

You are also unlikely to get over retail price for a used built pc, unless you already own a business.
