Wanted to take a new step and build my own machine. I did some searching around for some modest parts that would provide a decent machine and so far it seems that it is indeed a step up from what I previously had at my disposal. I like to play some games but am heavy into photo editing so I needed something that would suit my needs better than my laptop that had a Dual Core i5-480m, with 8gb of ram and a 750gb hard drive all pre-configured from Dell.
So far I need to work on my cable management but the build has the one cd/dvd bay at the top occupied and the first hard drive bay occupied to allow for some alright airflow. The case had a 120 mm blue led fan (1300 rpm speed) included with it but I installed a secondary cooling unit to keep better air flow.
It took a little time to complete the build being as this was my first time attempting to do this but with the help of a few tutorials and youtube videos I was able to complete it and then begin the software instillation process
