I wanted a fast computer for my wife because the I3 we had took over two minutes to boot, would (sometimes) crash if you had more than 3 windows open simultaneously and after updating to Windows 10, the keyboard and mouse would intermittently work. I know I could have updated the bios, but this was more fun. My wife is a teacher and needs to keep a lot of windows open simultaneously, so I wanted speed, fast storage and enough memory to handle the multitude of documents she needs to grade papers and speeches.
There was only one problem I had with the build. When I ordered the memory, I originally went with Amazon. Somehow the memory order changed from 240 pin to 204 pin. That took an extra week to get things going, and while I was going to wait anyway, I ordered the full 32GB instead of the 16GB that I sent back. I forgot to get new pics of the new memory.
The case is a dream to work with, plenty of room. I couldn't find any videos to guide me with the CPU cooler install. I tried quite a few different locations, and ended up installing the radiator on the outside of the metal case and the fan on the inside. It gets covered with the plastic top, so it worked out well.
The videos card was given to me, and since we aren't gamers, we only need decent graphics for the two monitors we are using. The power supply and the 1TB HD came out of the old computer, so there isn't a price on these, however you could add about $200.00 - $250.00 to the build price. Overall, this was a lot cheaper than I expected, and runs a LOT faster than either my or I planned.
Open to comments and suggestions. The next build will be for me, to do CAD/CAM work.
