Typically the slot closest to the CPU socket is the fastest and runs at gen3 16x so moving it down for aesthetics probably wouldn't be worth it.

Building it was just a pain trying to route cables awkwardly because I, unfortunately, did not research the motherboard enough. Interestingly enough even though I was scrapping about half of my parts from a dell nothing was dead or broken. But yeah for the longest time I had terrible cable management it was just ugly but I made some very needed improvements in my latest build you can check it out on my profile.

Good build, I don't really see why you chose the i3 since this looks more like you're stretching for the upper end of gaming. I'm in no means saying an i3 is bad because I myself gamed on one for two years(not by choice) but just because of the other specs i would have guessed you might have gone for an i5. but great first build mine was not nearly as smooth +1 from me.

The builds will perform almost identically the main price drain on the one I built for you was the case as it is a very high quality "console-style" case. I'd recommend either.

Naturally I would recommend checking Craigslist or eBay quick and see what your options are there but if you still have issues I'll be happy to do a little revamp

Hope you like what I threw together the idea was small as possible that's the reason for the strix card and I only put in one stick of 8Gb in case you wanted to upgrade.

Great first build! I got a lot of hate for cable management and not enough feed back on the parts so here: I love the form factor and the cpu choice GPU choice is great(all though I have a GTX 960 my self) Always good to have an SSD I like how you made a budget computer not, some overpowered machine used to do over the top things (PS aren't all "budget" builds over the original budget?)

I have the N200 and its a good case other than cable management and the HDMI port is blocked. One piece of advice: take a dryer sheet and use it as a fan filter because a lot of dust gets in there.

So I was taking some things into consideration, first your requirements, then I looked at what other people chose for you, and then I saw you were lenient on how much you could spend.

Feel free to add a new cpu cooler when you want to overclock, the case I picked should fit everything nicely and look not too bad either. reply or PM if you have questions.

I am a little confused, you have a 600w semi-modular PSU and yet the cable management could have been improved. I would suggest taking advantage of those cable grommets and redoing the cables. but great part choice 1+

I really love this build, great choice of case, motherboard, and SSD. One thing is you could have gotten the 970, which hardly has a performance difference for $200 less. Great job +1

I have a very similar build, but the only "odd" thing I see is the 4 2GB sticks of RAM. Considering you have probably 4-8 slots for memory, you are wasting your money, if you want upgrade in the future; a single stick of 8 would do the same job.

Anyways +1

I like your build, I built my first build with a 750 Ti and it works really great, but sense you don't have graphically intense games...you don't really need it! I would plan to upgrade it soon, soon as in a couple months. Keep building

:D +1

edit: Just to say it is good that you chose better parts because you won't need to upgrade as soon, the only major thing you should change is the GPU

I agree, I don't see why you would go with Windows 7 when you could have bought Windows 8.1 which is better optimized and uses less resources than 7.

The 630 is outdated so go with something like the 750 Ti by EVGA i have the FTW edition and it handles titanfall on high settings with 8xMSAA it even overclocks itself to run better. It can also destroy the Minecraft shaders mod. I am writing this from my phone so please excuse typos.

I had the same problem when upgrading my build, and I was so conflicted because I was worried it wouldn't work. I went out on a limb and bought the parts. Turns out you can activate your windows very easy when you motherboard swap on windows 8.1. it worked really well. And I am using my machine to write this, so that's proof it works without a hassle. (you will have to boot with the Storage device with the OS on it, so windows can deactivate itself, just an FYI)

And just a note: No I will not "finish" the parts list because I listed the parts above.

I had no wiggle room at all, this was maxing my budget. I picked everything and I didnt have money for something that I didn't need right away (the cooler) and this works very fine I am able to stretch 60-70 fps on Titanfall on High settings

And I tried my best with the cable management, but the N200 is a very unforgiving case when it comes to that. And it doesn't exactly matter to me because I don't have a window.

Thanks to all who commented.

The fact was that the motherboard was infact a bit weird but it works and I tied down most of the cables.
