This was my first PC build. With a new baby on the way I was working with a limited budget, but wanted to leave myself options for future upgrades.
Since I don't do much gaming at all (occasionally play some Command & Conquor Uprising or other older games), I wanted to use an APU to eliminate cost of CPU & GPU. After much research I settled on the AMD A10-7850k.
MSI A78M-E35 motherboard gives me 3x PCI slots for future upgrades. For work I do some lots of data handling and calculations on large 1-minute databases so I opted for 16GB memory. SSD as boot drive lets system boot extremely fast.
The Corsair Air 240 case was awesome to work with. Great cable management, came with 3x 120 mm fans (which is all I am using for cooling. Went with a larger power supply so that I could upgrade components in the future without worrying about needing more power.
Only downside I am experiencing so far is when transcoding videos for Plex (while streaming via wireless on a Fire TV) I get occasional lag, however I believe this is more to do with the wireless or Fire TV.
Update 3/10/2016 - I posted a picture of the case with the LED's on, after re-routing some of the wiring and LED's.
