My attempt at building a reasonably good build that would last a few years on its own, I am from India and prices for components are not cheap and some major ones not at all available, after hunting for a long time(two months) contacting multiple resellers and dealers had to import memory from newegg usa, and mobo from Dubai.
Over all it was a great experience building a desktop pc from scratch.
Yesterday changed the monitor from RL2455HM(TN) to EW2440l(VA) For overall performance Also changed keyboard and mouse, one of the kind logitech distributor offered me a g510s for just INR.3500($55) last image has me logging in to wot.
added the windows experience index image as you can see the low score is due to hdd only, the on die GPU scores 6.9 which is great, I have tried to be as laymen as possible with my explanations and have tried to avoid technical jargons and numbers, but if you have a question or suggestion please feel free.
Wanted a on-board graphics solution for cheap,trust me you won't go wrong with it.
Massive cooling performance.
There are not many good boards out there for fm2+, one con if you are using this board and the carbide 240air - the front panel usb header doesnot fit (jusb4)all the way in because of a stupid placement of a capacitor and another port(jusb3) very close (right next to each other) AAAAAA!
Mind blowing bhoom!
I know some of you may frown at me or even leave some advice, but guys i have completed my hw & networking course and i have been a hardware engineer and a dell engineer for a very long time have owned asus g73jh, own all alienware 14,17,18 models and trust me ssd's donot out perform 7200hdd in any way except loading and saving game content.
Originally wanted a mini itx build even bought a cooler Master elite 130, but then came across this online and feel in love, Con - once you remove the front panel for installation purpose and put it back together it feels flimsy and loose, My suggestion there are for plastic clips or tabs holding it to the main chassis once you remove the side panels try releasing these four clips or tabs to release the front panel.
Felt this was morethen enough, even with a good gpu install in the future its morethen sufficient.
Had one lying around
Just bought it for gaming purpose, happy with it.
Keyboard is great cheap solution, mouse is just cheaper and bCrap
