So I actually built this thing early last fall. But I've just been so busy I never came and posted it. But I took pictures and I'm proud of is since it's my first build. So I figured before it was so old the parts weren't even on the parts list anymore I should post it.
I built it for making music and youtube video's and stuff. Thought about going with a mac then the pc builder community convinced me to just build my own. Pretty happy so far. Just need to learn more about the software and programming side of things so I can really get the most out of this thing.
Build went pretty smooth. Watched some youtube videos and just was careful with all the parts. Not sure I picked the best mother board for what I'm doing. But after weeks and endless hours of researching each part, each parts stats and what they even mean I kind of got burnt out and just decided to pull the trigger on something.
I also decided last minute not to get a video card right away which I am now regretting. So that and some more ram to help smooth out the rendering process will probably be my next purchases (if I ever have money again lol.) Oh, and because I don't know much about doing so and haven't purchased a better CPU cooler yet, I haven't ventured into overclocking it. But I'd also like to start messing with that sometime soon.
Would love to hear any advice from you guys on how to get the most out of this thing and any feedback on my part choices. I'd really like to get more plugged into this community so I can really learn how to tweak settings for more performance and know this thing inside and out. Kind of just built it then haven't really spent anymore time getting to know her lol. Oh and I actually just officially posted my first video. only took me 8 months lol. check it out if you want https://youtu.be/7ha9mZ2doFc.
Okay, enjoy the pics and please hit me up with your comments and advice.
p.s. i remember people talking about there being places online to test computer speed and things like that. can anyone suggest a good one so I can get some stats to put up here?
