My first PC build, opinions wanted!
My budget is $650 (It may be over that at times with no sales)
Why I chose these parts:
CPU: Good budget CPU, I have heard many good things about it
Motherboard: Has almost all connectors I would ever need (note below), including the PS/2 ports I need for my mouse and keyboard, and had great reviews
RAM: Fast, high amount, inexpensive, good reviews
HDD: I really only need 1TB, no SSD needed. GREAT HDD, amazing reviews, good price.
GPU: The 1050ti is new, inexpensive, and has good ratings
Case: Looks nice (not necessary), cheap, has FIVE preinstalled fans, 3 USB ports (I only really need 2), more internal slots than I need (futureproof and reusable for multiple builds!)
PSU: Cheap and good PSU
Random fan-cable-splitter: The motherboard has 3 case fan ports, the one-to-three cable makes all 5 case fans usable. Cheap and good.
