Hi Team, The goal of this machine is to try my hand at PC building while providing a computer that my wife can use. I still need to purchase a graphics card, I am leaning to either the Radeon 480 or the GTX 1060.
She will be using this for Dragon Age, SWTOR, and other older games. She doesn't need more than 60 fps as she is coming from an XBOX1, a PS4, and using her mac air to game on.
After building I suffered some issues with a hard freeze. However, it turns out when transporting the tower from my office to the upstairs office I bumped it and one of the cpu fan power cords was blocking the cpu fan causing the cpu to lock up. Dumb problem for a first timer.
*The Hitachi is a refurb from eBay.
Please forgive the potato photos. I am new to this so next time I will have more photos.
When I buy the graphics card I plan to add some led fans to the front of the case and look into a dust filter for the top of the case as my cats are trying to sit on it.
