Nothing unique here. First build, looking for tips/opinions/ohgodImustbemissingsomething. Looking to stay at or below this price range as an OS is still unsecured (for extraneous reasons).
Planning on using it for general use (internet browsing, music, word processing). Only unusual programs I'll be using are AutoCAD and possibly Reason.
And of course as a low-mid level gaming rig. Not too interested in running new releases on high settings. Still working on a list of old games that my laptop (RIP) couldn't run with it's integrated graphics card. Things like DOW2, Diablo 3, XCOM remake, Chivalry, various steam sales.
As for the thermal paste, I read somewhere that its worth replacing the stock stuff on the cooler. Thanks ahead of time!
