Helped my brother build this for his wife. Not too shabby considering he gave me a whole 24 hours notice to put these parts together.
Could have saved a little with the mobo, dont really need to go with a Z series if you dont have an unlocked CPU. Great build for a mid tier! Most Intel CPU's such as the one you picked are still perfect for gaming and everyday applications! +1 :)
Probably could have. Currently this is the cheapest MSI atx 1150 socket mobo though by like one dollar. That CAD extra cost always blows my mind.
Yeah I was bit choked that they didn't have an H97 motherboard. My brother gave this to his wife for her birthday. He asked me to help him the day before and this was this or an H81 mobo. I don't think they have installed any games on this yet though, so no word on actual performance. But yeah should be decent!
Nice job. +1
How about some more pics and description
I had a REALLY hard time getting these pictures. But yeah I want more too. I forgot to take them while it was here at my place. Now it's at my brother's place. The spot it's in I had to take pictures of the inside blind. Back of the camera was right against a bed.
Well shoot. Thanks though
