Description

First build, I use it to do light gaming it handles anything I throw at it and flies through daily tasks such as YouTube and researching things. But let me know what you think of it please I would like some criticism and feedback.

EDIT: at first I put down my PSU as an evga 500B. That was incorrect and is now changed to what is actually in the build.

EDIT2: I have re wired my system from its previous wiring. My cable management imo is much much better. Let me know what you think please.

On the contrary, I wouldn't worry about the PSU destroying your gear or burning your house down. EVGA's budgeted power supplies have proven to be very solid and up to the task for a great price point. JonnyGURU thoroughly tortured, tested and reviewed them and was shocked at how well they perform.

I use the 430W model in my 24/7 home NAS and for the last two years it's been a solid workhorse.

How's Doom running on it? +1 for W7 Pro. Maybe add an SSD later, they are so cheap these days.

If you wan't to upgrade your gpu, you could get the RX 480 which comes out on the 29th, it is supposed to have the performance equivalent of a gtx 970 or 980 for $200, but don't quote me on that, we don't have any solid benchmarks yet because it was just announced and hasn't been released yet

I agree with RaspberryPiFan about you PSU think about a RM750 or even a step up with evga. last thing you would want is 29.99 PSU taking out a couple hundred dollars worth of your equipment plus its also help with some cable management. its a good and safe investment. also with the actual release of the new pascal GTX 1080, you should consider maybe in the feature upgrading from the 2gb VRAM to a GTX 970 more vram more power and you'll get alot smoother gameplay and you;ll see a price drop for the older cards to.

Let's not do this whole capacitor dogma thing again shall we? You were doing so well with this account.

At-least I referred to a reputable source and an actual one this time? :P

You referred to a reputable source, but you ridiculously, over-the-top exaggerated what the review said. Let's review, shall we?

The review stated, and I quote:

... a notch down from the good ones. And I don't like the proximity of the VSB caps to heat producing parts, though I suppose they have to be. Even so, we really need the Japanese parts in that application for longevity's sake.

(and)

First, half a point comes off for the second tier capacitors.

Caps so bad - that he deducts a whopping half a point. And he doesn't say it's going to explode. He calls them second tier. Whereas, you said:

THOSE CAPS WILL DIE.

It is that polarization that doesn't fly here. If you want to say the caps are not as good quality as the Japanese caps, that's fine. There's no argument there. But keep things in proper perspective - this isn't a binary thing.

No-name caps on a Coolmax PSU might make me write about how awful the caps are... Something that will destroy a computer...

That sort of thing is what got you muted last time. I'd recommend you not.

Oh and for the record - I didn't mute your previous account because I disagreed with you on CX power supplies. I muted you because you didn't respect repeated warnings to cite facts and stop posting FUD.

What would you suggest instead?

I am not too concern with a non-K i5 paired with a GTX 750 Ti. However, if OP ever wanted to upgrade their GPU to something like a GTX 970/1070 or an R9 390. I would recommend EVGA's GQ, B2, G2 or P2. Somewhere 550w or 650w would be good unless their B2 750w is on sale which is their lowest watt of that version.
There is also Antec's High Current Gamer and Seasonic's M12II or G Series. Corsair's RMx is a possible option too.

I accidentally put down the evga 500B as what I had, but I've corrected it to what is actually in this build.
