Description

To start I wanted to have a nearly all white computer that could do gaming at a level that I have never had the opportunity to have for myself. for this basis a patiently waited to buy the individual parts over the course of a year and now all I need is the graphics card(s) I purposely left this as my last item in case a newer higher end model came out while i would be building, I was originally getting a 780ti and now that i have to pay fall tuition I'm excited to say possibly a 980 ti if they get here soon enough. right now I am doing a play through of Mass Effect and playing at max settings using dedicated graphics, I'm having all the fun with my exploding sniper rifle!

On the actual build side I did not run into any problems aside from it being my first one I've ever built. I have to say I had my step by step from Linus and PCPP open at all times. It all came together great, but I was hooked. I soon dismantled my whole computer to recolor with Plastidip my motherboard's thermal armor, my case's PCI slot covers, and most recently my power supply. All in white. This is how it has turned out so far. To let my plans be known I hope to do a custom loop and then cable mod cables throughout in white of course... some day...

It's the same as any other job, retail experience helps and if you can be confident in yourself anyone will always look twice at someone who wants it. as far as actual restrictions it depends where you live just go in to your local store and ask, say you would like to be the next up and comer in the store and that you are excited to learn from everyone there. scroll to the bottom of the best buy website and hit careers and that is all the help you should need.

Love the build. I have the black enthoo luxe. But why aren't you using the psu cover?

The PSU cover felt like cheating, and i felt it would be more striking to have a stickered and really good looking power supply, the real fun will be when i plug in those CableMod cables !

When i mean all white i mean no colors but some little cables that will have to be fixed someday and some black grommets and and other accents are okay, what id love to do is find like a vinyl wrap to do the top of my cooler. but it will get done as it gets done...

Works Great I get start up under ten seconds even with only 50gb left on it. I was lucky though I got the ones that they shoved enterprise grade flash chips in it by accident.
