Description

Alright, let's see what reading, getting input and watching youtube videos will do.

All my parts ordered. Trying to keep within a relatively close budget of $800. I'm already over but total cost purchasing came out to

Subtotal: $856.66 Tax: $ 56.13 Shipping: $ 12.90 Misc: $ 2.50 (Superbizz adds a signature confirmation) Total: $ 928.19 Rebates: $- 65.00


Grand Total: $ 863.19

I better remember to do my mail in rebates.

Okay it's built! Yay.

So yes I picked a mid tower for the Mini ITX Mobo, 'cause well...I wanted plenty of room to screw around inside for my first build. Plan is to get a smaller case 'cause, one their much cuter to look at and two, I now know what I'm doing.

I also lucked out. I was able to get a copy of Win10 from a cousin so it did save more money in my build. I ended up more in the $790 range because of it. The only problem I had was the HDD was DOA. So once that's done processing, I'll order a new one.

So far, like it. I haven't run any games as of yet but for school work and watching youtube it's doing perfectly fine. Monitor was given by a friend and I had a keyboard and mouse lying around.

It is quite funny to see a M-ITX board in an ATX case. But the parts choice is solid! +1

Title Is True

That little mobo in that pc makes the case look huge and unfinished. Kind of lonely. Ok now I need a hug.

Still +1 on your build.

Why the Z170 and a locked processor? Gigabyte I believe has a mini B150 gaming board with wifi for about the same price if not a few bucks less.

Why mini itx ? you could have gone with Atx or micro Atx at the same price you have paid ....

To answer almost everyone's questions.

I literally had no idea what I was doing when I picked parts. I didn't even notice it till I started getting stuff in. At the same time, I really just picked what would make me happy and made sense for myself. I figure if I botched something or I needed to make a different choice so it'd run better I'd have a nice little starting point rather than having nothing.

Just clocked it and it's about 15-25 seconds all together to have the whole thing booted up. I quite like using the SSD. It is my only option at this current moment
