Put some more pictures on!

From what I can see, you might want to work on the cable management a little bit.

Otherwise, your partslist is perfect. Nice work!

Looks super nice for a first time build. Really nice job with the cable management and the parts choices.

If I were you, I wouldn't put in an extra 480 down the road. I would sell it and get a higher performance single GPU. You won't run into any problems that come with dual GPUs in games that way.

General rule of thumb: Never sli/crossfire GPUs that can't outperform a single GPU. Only do dual GPUs if you need more than what single high performance GPU can do. Also, it will require less power.

But that's just my two cents. Great work, awesome build! +1

Looks absolutely stunning. Proof that the Noctua signature color can look amazing and you don't need a sick *** custom loop to make your computer look awesome.

Fantastic work!

There definitely should have been more mounting screws in there. Also, I'd say you won't really need to upgrade from that i3 for a while. Maybe one you get a new GPU, a CPU upgrade would be in order. Otherwise, you got good parts for your price. Nice work for a first build!

That will be great for everyday usage. They'll notice so much of a difference with that SSD and RAM.

Hope they like it, nice work!

You picked great parts for the price. I would have gone with an rx 470, 60, or 1060 but the 960 is a great card anyway.

Nice work!

Maybe 4.0 GHz. Only do that if your cpu isn't cutting it anymore. I should be alright for a while still.

Nice first build! You did a great job on a budget. That bad boy will dominate at 1080p.

As for a PSU, as long as it's +500w and at least 80Plus bronze, you should be good. Don't go too cheap.

Pretty decent list for the price. You could probably kick up the clock speed on the FX chip though.

Nice!

That is one of the coolest, simplest case mods I've ever seen. It looks sooooo nice. Also, great job with the cable management.

You did a great job revamping the system without just scraping it and building a new one, which I think most people would have done.

Awesome, awesome work. +1

Some more pictures and more description would be nice.

Otherwise, this is a really solid first time build . Maybe could have gone for the 1060 or the RX 480 instead but this might have been from a while ago, I don't know.

Nice work!

I'm suprised you're not dominating games at 1080p. Maybe you could mess with some of the settings on your graphics card or Windows. The RX 480 is a really nice card.

Orherwise, you did a great job with the parts. It's a perfect not overkill setup that will last you a while. Nice work!

If I were you, I would have gotten an i5 and less ram to make room for a GTX 10 series GPU. You'd probably see a greater performance gain that way with the money spent. But your build will definetely last a long time. No upgrades for a while.

Congrats on your first build! Looks good!

You did a great job picking parts for your first build. Nice work! You might want to check that CPU cooler though.

Comment reply on Xedden's Completed Build: My First Build (Before Upgrades)

Definitely upgrade the GPU first. The Pentium should be able to hold up for at least a little while longer. The gpu will make much more of a difference.

Get the 950/60 or even the new RX 460/70. All under $200.

I'd say the upgrade order should be GPU, SSD, CPU, RAM, PSU.

Nice build!

No shame in your cable management. It's your first build and cable management doesn't effect your temps too much anyway. You got some nice parts for the price! Good build!

Looks great! You did a great job picking out good parts for the price. Looks awesome! If you don't like the way that cooler looks, just replace that tan fan with a while one. It'll make the computer look so much better.

Nope, most of it's parts are long gone. they're all scattered through a bunch of other computers I've built. The only part I still have from it is the power supply, HDD and ram, haha. Oh, and a green case fan I added in later.

I got a Vostro 400 kinda like that. I'll be putting that up on the site soon.

As for the keyboard, those things last forever. I have a soft spot in my heart for those trusty Dells.

I used to be a Razer fanboy. I kinda regret it but the mouse shown in the last picture has done me really well. Still using it today.
