So, I made this computer for myself to do some editing with and some part time gaming. I am a student currently attending high school however I am intending to go into film school and also making my own videos and films and my s**t dell laptop with its integrated gpu just wasn't going to cut it.

So, I worked for 6 months at KFC and gained enough money so that I could buy this bad boy and pursue my passion of filming and telling stories. I didn't want to make it entirely for gaming but the ocasional game such as battlefield or a bit of Photoshop recording tutorials and video rendering. See I use programs such as photoshop, premiere, after effects and starting to use a bit of Auto Cad.

So, before making comments about the terrible cable management, this is my first time making the computer for myself. I was pretty happy with it but I had real trouble with this case and power supply. Especially the cpu connector and the fact that the PSU was completer non-modular and the cables were quite poorly constructed. Something that actually worked really well was the other cables. The computer isn't really that loud but the keyboard in a office like environment is actually annoying for my peers.

Anyway I tried to make the video for this but had to come in due to the terrible weather outdoors only enabled me to get a couple of the shots. But the video will be coming soon.

These pictures make me think I'd be some kind of slogan for "PCs need sun too!" I've never seen pictures on this site taken from 'outdoors' hahaha.

Nice parts though but some of the pictures are really badly focused and there's a ton of glare on the boxes. Also why didn't you get an 'ac' compliant Wi-Fi card? They're literally the same price as old 'n' band cards. Never heard of that brand of PSU before either.
