Description

My first full build and I didn't run into any problems. Nothing DOA which was my biggest fear after reading all the newegg reviews of every part. I don't plan on using this for much gaming so maybe next time a smaller mobo/case since I won't need more than one graphics card and a couple of drives. The NZXT white case looks great though!

I am liking what I see here, a lot of people only want to see a 680 and 3770k, but when you have a budget, you stick to it!

Very nice all around build, great for zipping around the desktop and programs thanks to that great SSD. Yes you could have saved some money with an M4 and bought a graphics card but if gaming isnt your priority than I can respect that.

As for the cabling, good job considering the case, I would perhaps advise to see if you cant run the CPU power up the right side of the board and around, its a bit in the way and your overall system would look fantastic that way.

The power supply is about as cheap as they come but you wont be stressing it much so I am not worried.

Interesting build. You're going to get heck for not having a GPU, but if you're not gaming then why spend the extra, eh?

Only thing I'm really confused about is the HDD. Why something so small? If your general purposes (Making an assumption here) are music, videos, and internet stuff perhaps an external would have made more sense cost-wise?

Why no GPU? What are your uses? I also would trust a $20 PSU. I really don't understand this build at all...

not entirely, their silence series are the only ones I'd personally trust at the moment but that being said there are other more well known reliable high quality parts usually within the same price range which would make it extremely difficult to choose this over them. That being said though, I don't see it being wise to trust a list of $100+ parts each with one of the most important parts of the system being a cheap budget PSU to give everything clean effecient power. The last thing in a build you ever should go budget cheap on is the PSU.

Route the 4 pin behind the motherboard. Also spend 100 on a gtx 650 gpu.

Shoulda dropped the SSD, get a 7770, or a 650 ti and cheaper RAM, and a better, more reliable PSU.

You know if you went with a amd based build you could have got a rig that could play bf3 for this price?

even if you don't game it increases the longevity of your build

There is an SSD in the parts list, Helen Keller.
