My first home built gaming computer project, dubbed Jedi. Began in September 2013 with the purchase of the chassis, completed in February 2015 with the addition of the graphics card.

Nice work for a small budget like that!

But, your using older parts, if you didn't have them already then i'd get a H97 mobo and a i5 4460 instead.

One more pic with everything installed please? :)

Thanks! Yeah, they are older parts. I started buying things in September of 2013, and I've just been accumulating stuff since then. Life kept getting in the way of my computer money.

I'm a little embarrassed showing off the inside, it's kind of a mess in there because it's such a tiny case and I've literally no room for cable management. I decided to go without any optical drives so I had space in the 5.25" bays to shove excess cabling lol, but air flow isn't impeded at all and internal temperatures stay well within a safe operating range. But I'll take a couple more and throw 'em up.

Nice budget build.

A good option for cable mangement is some Velcro brand hook and loop straps, Even in cases where you can't route behind the motherboard tray they do a good job of keeping your cables bundled together and out of the way.

Thank you for your suggestion! I may do that one day.
