Hello everyone! This was my first ever computer build. This computer was built for my parents. They don't do much more than check e-mail and browse the web. I am into gaming, hence why it's much more powerful than what they need. I aimed for a budget of $1000. All of the prices below are after the mail-in-rebates.
This computer is running Windows 8.1 Pro. I haven't had much time to run any performance tests yet, but hopefully will post results when I get around to it. Compared to the 8 year old computer that it replaced, this computer is blazing fast. Also, it is so much more quiet even with many more fans!
I will admit right away that cable management was the hardest part for building the computer. Good clean cable management is a type of art. Although the cable management isn't perfect, I think it should do! Let me know what you think!
PS: Sorry for the terrible pictures. I took them on my phone.
