Description

I basically just use it to play/record Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO) gameplay.

If you don't mind input the PSU is overkill at least 400-500w+ will save you a lot of money to get a better GPU, 16GB 1866MHz is too much power and money, 8GB 1333-1600MHz is more then enough.

If that's all you use it for, you probably didn't need to spend $1100 on it...

EDIT: That GPU is also terribly underpowered.

mind you, that's with peripherals; without, it's about $900

even $900 dedicated to one game without a decent GPU is silly.

You should use the grommets to run the cables through.

i agree with the others comments, the psu and ram you overspent on. 400 to 500w psu would of sufficed if you were just going basic, 8gb of 1333 or 1600 makes more sense for this build. Cable management needs work.... could of made better use of your money -1

i'm confused. you spent good money on parts that won't immediately affect performance (case, PSU) but didn't bother with the parts that do (no SSD, low-tier GPU). i can understand if you're planning on upgrading within a few months and bought the parts to get yourself situated, but if not you overpaid for things you won't be able to take advantage of when you could've emphasized function before form. if you do have plans to upgrade soon, definitely one of the first should be to replace that GTX650 with something around a GTX760/R9 270X, and then maybe consider an SSD.

also, it would be in your best interest to take advantage of the case's cable management and your fancy power supply's modular cabling. not only would it make it look neater, but it will also improve airflow inside the case.

Memory overpriced, useless GPU, too much power supply.

This is not a balanced build.

Not a bad build, until I got that GPU. If you had a budget, you couldn't have done better. Only need 8GB for gaming, subtract a Franklin ($100). That case is not being used to it's fullest. Could have saved $40 and got a smaller case. That power supply is over powered for your use. Could have saved a few bucks there too.
