Description

Hey all,

This is my first PC build so don`t eat me. I started coding about 6 months ago so I didn't want anything over the top. I also wanted to keep it at a low budget which I feel I was successful for an entry build. Bringing it to life was an amazing feeling.

It runs great, very quiet and looks better than I had anticipated.

It takes seconds to boot up and I have no lag when Im using it. With that said, I dont game but would be curious to know how it would perform so maybe one day I will try.

(I was originally going to buy the ASRock B450M Pro4 but was looking to keep my costs down and so far I haven't regretted doing so)

Haven`t had any problems other than RGBFusion 2.0 which apparently is extremely common.

Cheers!

Very good part choices. Care to show pics of the insides?

That 2200G will play most games out there, though you may have to reduce settings.

I'd probably also be just a tiny bit careful with posting pictures with your coding on the site, it's great but you may need to be careful about anyone stealing your code. (Should be fine, though.)

Thank you, definitely! (mind the mess -_- still learning how to hide the cables)

I just downloaded WarThunder to see how it runs and its actually really good! no lag and the picture quality is great! The hottest my CPU got was 50° and that`s after probably 2+ hours of playing.

Its always up so I wasn't even thinking about that lol. Its just a small project Im working on and have probably changed it 5 times now so Im not too worried but will definitely be more careful going forward, Thanks for the heads up!

Pretty good as far as the insides go - I've seen worse. Tips:

  • Route the motherboard cable through the back side of the case and through the holes.
  • Same with the CPU. You should be able to figure out the appropriate holes.
  • Stuff the extra cables around behind the back panel and into the 3.5" bay, or, if they can fit, just behind the back panel.

Pretty good for a first build.

You missed a ; on line 44. (JK).

In all seriousness, this is nice!

Welcome to the wonderful world of programming. HTML is a nice way to start. It's easy to read, you get immediate results without having to compile, and it's prettier than a text based console application.

It'll be even more "fun" once you get to MVC, if that's the direction you go. By "fun", I mean involved, sometimes overwhelming, sometimes frustrating, and really satisfying to see come together.

Great build for coding and a decent amount of games, welcome to the PC Master Race. I understand why you'd want Windows Pro but the ADATA XPG RAM timings are 16-18-18 (or 16-20-20 depending on the 3200MHz 2x8gb kit) if you switched that for the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB(2x8) 3200MHz kit (16-18-18 timings) and switched the 2200G(4 cores, 4 threads, 3.5GHz base, 3.7Ghz boost) for the new 1600AF you'd get 6 cores, 12 threads, 3.2GHz base and 3.4GHz boost (3.6GHz on 1 core) you could get a something like a ASRock RX 570 4GB GPU for just 5$ more. That's just my personal opinion, I don't understand why that kit of memory is 180$ and with what I proposed you'd get alot better performance for games and work station tasks.

Actually the 1600AF went up in price to 100$ instead of 85$. So that^ would be 20$ more than your build.

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

May I have a link to the section or sub-section for re-selling in their ToS? I became curious about the subject and have been researching it. I found transferring of the OEM Key. Section 4-b https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Useterms/Retail/Windows/10/UseTerms_Retail_Windows_10_English.htm

Looks nice bro! But always make sure the psu is facing down instead of the fan facing upwards to promote better airflow

Thank you! Wont really be doing any gaming on this one. Next build will be a gaming/work station though!

Oh wow no gaming? Save some money on the graphics card for your next build. Go with a 1650 or 1650super maybe a AMD 5500. Is there an esthetic desire as well? If not you could save $$ on the PSU like nonmodular.

Or spend that money on a faster CPU and get any cheap graphics card honestly lol..
