My buddy has been bugging me for a new machine since his laptop decided it didn't like Windows 10 (I told him not to upgrade). I used this guide from /r/buildapc to base some selections off of, as well as some input from some of my home builder friends as well as components I used in my first build (I'm brand loyal like that). He doesn't do much hardcore gaming, so all in all I think it turned out pretty well for where the price point (~$500) wanted to be.
This was my second home build, and my first using the microATX form factor motherboard. My previous build was for my personal machine which is a mondo-sized tower with a full form mobo that makes installing everything a lot easier (especially when you've got big fingers).
All in all it was relatively painless and while the chords in the power supply aren't as pretty as some more expensive models, it turned out pretty well.
