Used for media consumption. Gaming, streaming, and media storage. Didn't need anything too fancy but wanted something a little impressive. Will probably buy a better CPU Cooler and possibly a monitor in the next month or so.
I really like it, but why such a high wattage PSU?
Basically this is something I plan on upgrading throughout the years and having such a high wattage means I won't have to worry about power demands. Plus it wasn't very expensive so I figured why not get it.
ok, that makes sense :)
The PSU is overkill. You could have gotten away with a 500 watt unit and put the difference in 7200 rpm hard drive.
I got the overkill psu in case I decide to upgrade the video card to something intense thats running on multiple monitors. Or in case I need extra power for things like possible water cooling. I'll admit it's definitely overkill but It was a preemptive measure, and I got it for a good price so I didn't mind.
Kinda actually like the case. Different atleast. Most people just buy either Corsair, fractal, bitfenix, nzxt and cooler master. But this case is a first for me, reminds me of a cooler master case, from the HAF series can't remember what it is called. but it doesn't have that nice side panel windows.
nice build +1
Btw move your video card to the top slot. just to be sure it get's the best bandwidth.
Thank you, I think it's very nice as well and you can take the other side off for extremely simple cable management.
Can you upload a picture?
Awesome for the price!!
