(This is a serious build that I actually did this time, unlike my Ultra Mega Deathmachine post)
Here's my baby, my first completed build. I got the 2310 for $150, amazing for the price I got it. WEI is in the last uploaded image.
Motherboard got a little bit crammed after the video card was installed but nothing else to expect from the price. I am very happy with it though, Sata 6gb/s and gigabit LAN is uncommon for an H61 board.
Memory is great, 4GB is sufficient as I use this primarily for gaming and a little editing in Vegas.
Storage is good, this has been running for a few weeks and it hasn't failed on me yet.
Video card is AMAZING for the price, I highly recommend it.
I was really unhappy with the 430, I installed some extra Antec TriCools as it only comes with one fan, and though it has great airflow, it has **** all cable management options. I did the best I could with what I had available to me in terms of management.
Power supply is great. Supplies power.
Optical drive is an optical drive. it works.
Windows 7 was Windows 7.
Since PCPartPicker doesn't include taxes or shipping in barely any of the parts listed, this cost me about $900 total in the end. Still worth it. Doesn't go below 60fps on Just Cause 2, Minecraft, Blacklight: Retribution, or any of the games in my Steam library at my native 1680x1050 (steamcommunity.com/id/thedenizen).
I'm using a megashitty Microsoft keyboard and Nexxtech mouse at the moment with horrid headphones, I will be upgrading those three eventually.
