You could have built something much better for the price.
for $1200 i think you could have done a little better, why put in a $140 ssd when you only put $170 into your graphics...
Your cable management doesn't look bad, but your front intake could be severely choked :(
ya, with this case, there's really not much room in the back for cables :/ at least my side is intake as well
I really like the side window on that case, lots of viewing pleasure.
Ok seriously, what's wrong with my part choice? The SSD makes it star up fast and I'm fine with not having like a 770 GPU, the graphics work fine, the computer works fine! It's my first build, sorry I'm not up to par but I think it's good. It works like a beaut. I DID fix my cable management btw but seriously, why jump down my throat?
Good job on your first build. +1
Nothing is "wrong" with your part choice. Many of the people on this site are either brand snobs or opposite (all about the theoretical "best" price) and think computers are for gaming only. From what I have observed, people will down vote for any of the following reasons:
No or fuzzy pictures, not having a paragraph of text about each part, opinions (spending more (or not enough) than they FEEL you should, or whatever else opinion BS), or because the YouTube video they watched said X was better than Y.
So do not be discouraged by the people on this site.
Are you excited about your new computer? Yes, Good!
Does it do what you need it to do? Yes, Great!
Did you have fun and learn with the build? Yes, Awesome!
That is what matters. :D
Great parts except for the CPU cooler and GPU imo. You could have got a lot better ones for just a bit more.
Work on that cable management as well!
Mother of God.
Personally, I would've dropped the SSD, and gotten a 7850 OC, or 7870 ghz. Nice build though, but like DjArtifact said, you could've done a bit better on the hardware. :P
A lot of room for improvement with cable management, but the part choice is wonderful. Awesome build.
The cable management can be ignored considering he has (I think) top and back exhaust with a side intake and water cooling, but the part choice isn't even close to being wonderful.
Sorry wasn't really paying much attention when I wrote that. Correction, part choice isn't actually that good. Would've gone with a different GPU.
