This is the very first computer that I have ever built. After a months-long internal struggle, I decided to ditch my Xbox and go PC gaming. This rig isn't going to set any performance records, but I wanted something that was easily upgradeable and could solidly run my Steam library. I look forward to upgrading this rig in the future, it was a blast to build! (mind the messy cables, por favor)
One quick thing. After booting up for the first time, and downloading Steam with no issues, I shut my computer down. I then moved it into the next room and tried to turn it on...nothing happened. No lights. No sounds. Nothing. After some friendly forum posters recommended I reset my CMOS (by removing the battery on the motherboard, waiting 15 mins, and then putting the battery back in), the computer was restored to working order. It could have turned a great day into a very sad day, but the computer has been working swimmingly for the past week and a half with no further issues.
