well as the title said. this is my first ever computer build. after watching long hours of videos on youtube on how to build a pc and also htpc with a coolermaster elite 120 case I decided to take the bold step and it was fun to be honest. although it wasn't rosy at the beginning, I had to sweat and finally struggled to fit the coolermaster geminii 4 on the motherboard which I enventually ditched. The build was completed mid October and I spent 2 nights to complete it (had to go to work during the day). I made some wrong judgment though in selecting my parts. I went for a corsair vengeance 2x4GB ram which was a bit tall and I couldn't get it to fit on the motherboard with the coolermaster cpu cooler installed. I had to ditch the cooler and went for the Intel sock one. I should have gone for a higher PSU say 500W instead of 430W that I went for. this was due to the fact that I relied on the wattage estimate that pcpartpicker provided which was below 400W. although I am not having any issues with the build and I have played sleeping dogs and GTAIV at maximum settings and for long hours without any issues whatsoever. anyway all in all, it was fun during the whole process.
