Description

This is my first full build. I am quite happy on how it turned out, and extremely happy with my cable management.

This is a replacement for my "old" laptop that had an i3 330um at 1.6 Ghz, Nvidia 310m, 8 Gigs of RAM, and a 750 Gig HDD. That used to be my go to rig for everything but now this is its replacement.

The story of its name is a bit of an odd one. Its not my usual naming scheme for my computers. I usually take the brand name of the computer, and add a y to the end(ex; my old laptop was Asusy). However, there is no real brand name for a custom build pc. So I took my last name and added a number to the end. It sounds kinda cool but I don't know how FowleTwo sounds :P.

Let me know how you think I did, or if you have any feedback at all. All feedback welcome as long as its constructive :)

I also have a question for all you guys out there. Is that amount of GPU sag normal/acceptable? It seems a bit much to me.

Can you elaborate on your question about GPU sag? Do you mean the GPU from your laptop compared to the CPU?

Nice build and you should be very pleased with the cable management, although it's not all that hard in that case.

What are you talking about? i think he's talking about how the GPU is leaning down/lowering. I think it's fine, if you're sure all the screws are tightened down + make sure the cpu cooler isn't touching it/leaning on it (hard to see on the pictures) then you'll be fine.

Oh, never mind, I didn't even notice that in the pic. The 770 backplate could help straighten it out.
