As a long time Xbox 360 user, it was time for an upgrade!
First ever PC build; it will be primarily used for gaming and school needs. I had a budget of $900 and was lucky enough to have almost everything on my list go on sale at one time or another. Managed to save alot of money, plus there are still $40 in Mail in rebates to come. :) The GPU could be better but it had a $20 MIR and came with Metro: Last light for free.
Ultimate goal here being: Upgrade from a 360, don't spend(at the time) over $1000, and enjoy building it. Success on all fronts IMO. Keep in mind I'm not going to OC anytime soon, but still feel i could continue to upgrade the GPU if need be and what not. Tried to do a little cable management, and for the most part its not bad, but ill continue to tweak it here and there.
Saved around $115 total. Also, I redid my cable management its alot better now. :)
Comments? Suggestions? Thoughts?
*EDIT*:I have since added alot of new parts as well as overclocked the CPU to 4.3. I even overclocked the GPU to 1215Mhz just using the Precision software provided by EVGA. I'm still learning but I've come along way since then. :)
