After going through 3 laptops, new or refurbished only for them to break down on me, I finally decided to build a PC. This is my first ever build, and I couldn't been more happier that it works like a charm.
This is NOT for gaming. Possible emulation but other than that, no PC gaming. Will be used for daily use, some photo and video editing, maybe for college later, browsing, all that good stuff.
Don't have much to say about the CPU and motherboard. Needed RAM about 8. Anything less than 4 drives me nuts. Got SanDisk SSD and am very pleased and surprised by how long my computer boots up. Was going to go with Kingston but I hear many complaints about it so went with SanDisk, for they were cheap and not many people had problems with SanDisk. Haven't bought a HDD yet but that will come later. Liked the case, it was cheap and looked ok. Hear 430W was the ideal number for the power supply so got that as well. Plus I am supposed to be getting my $20 rebate soon. Disk drive works great, and so does the W/less adapter.
The score isn't all that good, but then again I don't care much for graphics.
I did my best with cable management. I am ok with how the inside looks but think I could do better. Maybe one day when I have the time to rearrange but other than that this is the best I could do.
