I built this computer because I was tired of having outdated technology at home. All the computers before this were all from about 12 years ago, and I was tired of them. I also needed a senior project for high school and building a computer got accepted, so this killed two birds with on stone. I chose the name "Pretium et Euismod" because it means "Price and Performance" in latin, and this computer has a great price/performance ratio.
CPU: I chose the FX-6300 because after all my research, it is the best bang for your buck CPU currently on the market for gaming and 3D Modeling, the two things I will be doing most besides internet browsing. I also got it to be a steady OC of 3.7GHz which isn't too bad for only using a stock cooler.
MOBO: I chose this board mainly because of budget. I needed a board that would support what I had, but also give good performance. But this board has some issues: 1.) It left no room for the wireless card I bought because the GPU covers it up, so I wasted $15 there, and 2.) The 4-Pin Power Connector for the CPU was crammed in a corner, so there was almost no room to make the cable fit, but I managed to get it in but only by bringing the cable across the whole board which makes it look kinda bad. Over-all though, the mobo is pretty good.
RAM: I know, the blue color doesn't fit the rest of the build, and it's only 1333 not 1600. But it was on sale, and I needed to cut cost down as much as I could. I plan on getting the Team Zeus Red 8GB set once I save up the money. But the RAM works for now, and that's all I can really ask for.
Storage: The WD 1TB drive was affordable, it's decently fast, and it will definitely be enough storage for everything I'm gonna have on it. Later on I do plan on getting an SSD, but I still have to save up for it.
GPU: I went with the R7 260X over the R9 270X because I needed to stay within my $500 budget, and I needed to be very strict about it. Before making the switch down though, I researched the two, and there isn't much a performance difference until you get into high-end video editing and such; so for gaming it's just fine.
Case: the NZXT 210 is simply a good solid case, and it's black. The only two requirements I had when I was purchasing one. Later on I plan on taking some of the brackets and internal bays and such and painting them red so I can get better Red/Black theme going on, but for now everything is just fine.
PSU: I originally planned on going with a 600W PSU, but after a little more research, I decided to save a few bucks and get the Corsair 500W instead.
Disk Drive: I didn't need a blu-ray disk reader/writer, so I went with a highly rated and cheap DVD Read/Write drive instead. It was worked great so far, and I hope it keeps it up.
Cable Management: The pictures don't really show cable management too well, but I was able to get unnecessary cables out of the way pretty easily, and with plenty of room to work with because of the Micro ATX board I have room to add more components later on.
All-in-all this first build was really fun, and I absolutely cannot wait to build another one. Next time, I do plan on doing some more compatibility research so that I don't have another wireless card incident like in this one. Thanks to everyone on here for showing me what real computers are, and for all that I have learned by reading and watching what you all have done. Sorry about the bad pictures, I have an old camera, and had glare. :/
