Description

Decided to finally put together a starter build due to the great information found on this website. Shopped around for the best deals. I realize that a 750Watts power supply is overkill but couldn't pass up the price at the time. Cheaper than Seasonic 650Watts. I want to put in a decent graphics card and SSD soon. Also want to overclock as well as getting a new computer desk (to hide the wires). Love the case and the USB 3.0 on the front of the case which the motherboard supports out of the box. No problems setting everything up. Easy install. Using it for gaming, photo and a little video editing.

High five for that part selection (except for the mobo - not fond of it)! Also, it appears you put the hard drives in backwards. The rest of the cable management could use work, but I've seen worse (it won't suffocate your parts, at least).

Bravo! In terms of a graphics card, if you have the money, look at the GTX 770 or maybe a 7970.

What GPU are you gonna add?

Nice build could have better cable man. (I have the same case and I did a little better)

I thought the hard drives snapped in rather tightly. Luckily I bought a couple extra caddies since I broke one trying to get it out. Now they are in correctly. Thanks for the tip.

The low voltage ram was on the motherboard's compatibility list. Otherwise, I wouldn't have got it. It has some room to overclock and runs cooler.

Finally added a video card. Found a good deal on a 7970 and got it before it went out of stock.

Why low voltage RAM. Intel advises 1.5V. I guess you are overclocking it.

Excellent prices and great build so far.

Get a GPU and start gaming!
