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.
