A couple of years ago I bought my first computer at staples. I have around $2,000 into it at this point. I thought I was getting an amazing deal (500g hard drive, 4 gigs of DDR2, 400w power supply etc) so yeah now i know I got totally ripped off. After doing tons of research on parts, risk, prices and comparisons. I decided to build my first computer. I bought EVERYTHING from newegg. The main purpose of this computer is multi tasking, quick books, accounting etc. I do not game at all. Right now the only thing I think I need major help on is some "Cable management lol".
Tell me what you guys think? What did I do wrong? What will greatly improve this system for an inexpensive price? Any suggestions?
Thank a lot!
PS. It took 4 hours and 20 minutes from start to finish.
