Well my first computer i ever bought was compaq presario and I've been using a HP laptop dv7 since, but it is dying on me now. I figured it's time for an update. I treated myself this year in buying these components having no knowledge on building whatsoever, but looked through a series of builds and educated myself through youtube. I have not really gotten into the cable management yet.
EDIT= added a cable management updated pic with open case view before/after.
