Description

This is my first build ever!!!!!! and it was fun. Its not really for gaming just web browsing, movies and a lot of school work -_- lol. I love all the parts and everything worked perfectly the first time. The only thing I would say is that cable management is a bit hard for this case so mine may not look to pretty but I still like the case. Thats about it. Thank you PCPartPicker and everyone else who helped me out. :)

Good job on getting fast RAM, there's a noticeable difference with it when you use it, especially with the A10 you have. You may want to consider getting an external hard drive, or a normal one to put into your computer for storage purposes. 120GB doesn't last long if you don't regularly clear it out. And you have to deal with the system partition, which drops that 120 even lower.

With an A10, you shouldn't have a problem playing some of the less graphics intensive games out there, but, since you aren't really gaming with it, the A10 is more than enough.

Pretty smart build. Agreed that you might want to look into some additional HDD storage.

Nice work on your cables for a first as well.

Good work.

I was thinking the same. Check out the reviews on Newegg, they seem to be all good

Great build! I chose the same processor and RAM. Motherboard is Asrock FM2A75 pro 4-m, though. Is the RAM working good for you? Cuz on G.Skill site it doesn't show any FM2 motherboards compatible with it. http://gskill.com/products.php?index=403

Nicely Done.

+1 on good ram choice. Should really help since you are using an APU. Even with difficult cable management, you did a pretty good job tucking and tying up those cables. You definitely will not regret buying a storage drive, and the good news is they are cheap.

i'll add my complements to the fast RAM; the A10 is probably the best CPU for what you'll be doing, and with great integrated graphics to boot! you made some overall great decisions here for a first time.

consider getting a hard drive later on, unless you happen to have an external drive lying around. you can easily get a 1TB drive for another $80-90.

I was planning on dropping in a hdd that I had from my dead hp computer but I found that it uses a those old huge ribbon cable and I don't want to use that or I don't even think I can with this motherboard so I'm just going to save up and get another 120gb SSD when or if I need it. I was just wondering if it will affect my boot time a lot if I have documents on the same drive as the operating system.

That's an IDE drive! You CAN get an adapter for about 10 bucks. Yeah, performance'll be kinda ******. But you're paying 10 bucks for storage and will be able to keep the SSD cleaned up for programs only. I have a few laying around also.

Having documents on your main SSD shouldn't lower your boot time but eventually you might run out of space if you use the 120g SSD for everything.

When you do add a 2nd drive I would probably save a few bucks and put in a normal HDD instead of an SSD.

For the 90+ you'd put into another 120GB SSD, you could easily get a 1TB HDD to just use for storage and such. Plus, documents are prone to being made and deleted often by the user, and SSDs, while capable of doing this, often take a hit in total life when you consistently add and erase data.

Great choices Im actually a fan of the Rosewill micro atx case. Only a few good budget micro atx cases out there and rosewill line m is oneof them.

+1 for the fast ram. APU loves that. Get MOAR STORAGE. A cheap WD Blue drive would work fine
