I built this computer about 2 months ago because my best computer at home was a laptop with a 1st Gen i3 at 2.4 ghz and graphics 2500 I believe. It could barely even run Minecraft, so I wanted to have an extremely upgradable pc for the money I had that would run minecraft well, and be ready for other games with a few upgrades. Quick Review of Purchased Parts CPU: The thing is a beast. I centered my build around this thing and it allows me to game and render 1080p video at the same time. It runs super cool even with the stock heatsink and does anything you'd want in a CPU for a great price. Motherboard: I bought this a few months ago on Newegg, but it's now off of Newegg. It does what it is supposed to, but I haven't tried dual channel, CPU OC, or anything fancy like that. The chiset is WAY outdated, so my CPU may even be restricted. Also I read that the chipset doesn't support HDMI, which I am not sure about because I am running One VGA and one DVI monitor. It's a pretty crappy board, but it gets the job done and its full ATX.
Memory: Its low quality 1 dim of 1333. It works, not much more I could ask for.
Storage: This HDD is awesome. I get boot times of under 30 seconds and great write times while recording or benching on fraps.
Video Card: It's MSI, it's reliable, it was $55, It gets great price for power and does not require much power at all. I have it OCed to 700 MHZ because why not. It got a heaven score of 301 and seems reliable as anything.
Case: This case is great for a flashy starter build. The case have 2 80mm Blue LED fans and 1 120mm fan. It runs well but I already had to solder one back together after a wire broke. There's no possible cable management in thins case, so its probably heating up my system. The HDD cage is terrible and it has terrible video card clearance, but its got good ventilation, is a great price, and looks cool.
PSU: Great so far. Semi-Modular, 80 Plus Bronze, SLI Ready. I love it so far.
1st: NZXT Tempest 410 Elite
2nd: 8b Black 1866 Corsair Vengeance Pro
3rd and 4th(Not sure which to do first): GTX 760 (When it's released) and Gigabyte AM3+ UD3 Motherboard
5th: A good 120gb ssd. If I had to buy now I'd go with the 840 pro, but I will decide for sure when I am ready
6th: Coolermaster Seidon 240
7th: 8 gb Black 1866 Corsair Vengeance
8th: Another 760 in 2 way SLI
This build IS NOT at all a respectable build right now, but the urge to have a decent computer and the experience of building one made me do it. I now have a business with some of my friends building people pc's for good prices, so it turned out well. Let me know what you think now and of my upgrade idea list and if you have any questions.
