I'm going to college so I wanted something with a little more quality than a laptop. I just finished this build a few weeks ago and no problems yet. The title gives away why I went with an i7. I regret not going XL ATX on the mother board modular on the power supply . Over all I love it. It is also my first build. The keyboard, mouse, monitor, and speakers are from an old dell inspiron that was built in 2008 i think. Sense I'll be in an 7 bed apartment with only one Ethernet cable I need the wireless network adapter. The 16gb of RAM most say are overkill but for CAD programs that's good. So games? I'll be mostly doing steam and minecraft. The price has probably changed by now but I got everything for $1585.49. So tell me what do you think, did I do good or bad?
I needed something with some beef.
I wish I went bigger but it does the job.
I just wanted overkill it.
I did a test run with minecraft and after I turn down the render distance to 14 it ran smooth.
I love this case. I wanted a STAR WARS feel to it and that's what I got.
Should have gone with a modular.
This is just my back up hard drive for if this crashes. My sisters tell its more common in college than anywhere else.
