Edit: forgot to mention it, but in those picture I forgot to put the SATA cable in. It's quite low-profile so it doesn't make that much of a difference, but just wanted to throw it out here.
First build here. Going for a budget build. The name is as such because I wasn't expecting my cable management to be outstanding, which it wasn't. It's better than I thought. As you can see in the picture I just jumbled all my cables together in a rats nest and stuck them on the top-right corner of the case. Not using a DVD-drive so I thought might as well use the space. Haven't overclocked yet but I plan on going for it soon.
CPU: Great budget CPU. I'm not sure why AMD processors are never used in possible budget builds. 4 cores? Count me in! The only downside here is the fact that it uses the FM2+ socket, which I heard AMD doesn't plan on releasing any new CPU's for in the next year. The only other processors I could buy for that slot are APU's, which I don't need because I already have a GPU. This could prove a possible bottleneck in the future if I need to upgrade my GPU for newer games.
Mobo: Good little mobo. Nice little BIOS. No issues yet. Went for micro-atx because I wanted it to fit under my desk and generally be portable. I live in a busy household, a massive tower would not have fit in. Edit: A few issues in BIOS: every once and awhile the BIOS will crash shortly after I launch it, and will sometimes just crash randomly while I'm fiddling in it. Generally, the BIOS is very unstable, especially if I try overclocking literally anything (even the RAM). I think that a BIOS update should just fix this.
RAM: You may be wondering; why did I buy 1x8gb instead of 2x4gb? The reason is because the mobo only has two RAM slots, so I thought I'd invest now to have a free one for an upgrade in case I ever need 16gb for editing or something. I think that's worth abandoning dual-channel.
Storage: Went on the list, hit "price lowest to highest" for 1tb, this was the cheapest. Not much to say, I'm too inexperienced to critique a hard drive. I would have gone for SSD but it went over my budget.
GPU: I ordered this before the 960 was out, fyi. Very good card, very good price. I was expecting the card to look like a kid's toy, but it is surprisingly good quality for the cheapest 285. Quite heavy, looks durable... It can be a bit loud, but I don't mind that much. I'm hoping the CPU doesn't bottleneck much, I tried to match the CPU and GPU performance-wise.
Case: Cheapest nice-looking case. Good for what I'm using it for, I wouldn't recommend it for anything more than a budget build. Cable management is non-existent unless you cram all the cables in a corner like I did.
PSU: Quiet, cheap, 80+ Bronze, 550W, Thermaltake. No issues yet, however this was a 4th tier PSU, so it might struggle once I get overclocking. 550W might be cutting it a bit close but it's been fine so far. Can't say the same for in a year or so.
Possible upgrades: First upgrade will obviously be an after-market CPU cooler. I was thinking a 212 Hyper Evo, which I can buy with rebate money. RAM is always an option too, of course, that's why I only got one stick. I don't need it yet but if I start using memory-heavy software I will. If the PSU proves troublesome, or starts to lag behind the rest of the system, I'll have to get a 600-800W one, hopefully 80+ gold. The case it quite good for the price but quite bad in general. I new one would never hurt. I'll only get to upgrading the CPU once a better FM2+ processor that isn't an APU rears it's head. I'll be unable to get any better with the GPU because literally anything better than a R9 285 will get bottlenecked to hell by my CPU.
