Looks really good! I'm just dreading a surge of laptop-centric completed builds. Thanks a lot for adding this category though, it makes sense as most of the retailers who deal PC parts also do laptops (also it makes it easier to see as newer mobile hardware comes out).

They're 2 years old and somewhat outdated by now, that's a fair price I'd say if shipping is extra.

Zip ties. Lots and lots of black zip ties. You can zip tie all the cables together, and then the ones that are behind the monitor can be zip tied to run down the centre of the monitor, the ones behind the PC can go down the hidden side of the PC and be routed under.

I think I can spare enough comment karma to say you really need to manage those cables
Pretty clean overall though. I like the corner aesthetic

They're red (3pin). I didn't use them in this case but I have used them in other cases, they seem to be good for stock fans. Don't rely on them for high static pressure.

They look good, and they get air from one place to another. They're decent intake fans but I replaced them anyways.

Basic stuff (ties, risers) and 3 fans.

Ah... yeah it's too bad Microsoft is so damn proprietary so you can't use Libreoffice or any other Linux-friendly software.

Yeah anytime I try to emulate a Windows feature (e.g. a game) I end up wasting an hour looking for workarounds and it ends up taking up too much disk space and not even being an enjoyable experience.

They need to be more like us here in Canada. (We not only have a metric schizaton of hydro power but also nuclear from the biggest reactors in the world, putting power at a very sane 7.5 cents (CAD) a kWh

That's great! I've been using Debian/Ubuntu on my primary computer for 3 years now (and I'm 14 :), the only reason I was on Windows is because I got a free key... it was tempting but now it's gone I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

That's a lot of distros. Applause... that's amazing. I'm stuck on Ubuntu because I am a game addict, but once I get a life I'll have to check out more distros (non-Debian based ones). I guess I never asked for help because of my pride; I had installed Ubuntu numerous times, even on this PC, so I felt like it was my fault it wasn't working properly :) turns out it is because my BIOS was out of date (the hidden curse of new parts)

Paragraph 2... I agree completely. I may not have been there since the beginning but I can certainly appreciate how invasive, bloated and poorly coded Windows is (especially developing in C#. It's basically MSDN or stackoverflow if you want to go lower-level than basic dancing lights). I must have spent 3 hours trying to get Windows how I wanted it to act, and it took maybe 15 minutes (after the chaotic install) to get Ubuntu to do the same.
I can't wait to say goodbye to all this conglomerate TOS;DR spyware like Google... at least I'm free from Microsoft or Facebook for now.

What do you think I should try as my next foray into Linux? I have a spare SSD and I'm eager to have a go at something new!

I just had to Wikipedia that and it was an OS made themed on the Third Temple, that a delusional, schizophrenic, bipolar programmer made after being deliberately instructed by God to do so.

Time to switch OSes again

I agree. Only games that are really made for linux (C++ is almost mandatory) can run smoothly, not to mention the lack of G sync and freesync over HDMI.

Windows 10 is decent. I like that there's customizability, but it's definitely not any more lightweight (bootup times are a driving factor for me).

Here in Canada there is only one place that sells it (Canada Computers), and the price never shows up on the site. When I add it as a custom part, it displays as the Chopin SECC with Stickers, and the price doesn't show, hence my frustration.

I guess Android is technically a modified Linux and macOS is a modified BSD, which was an inspiration for Linux...?

No hard feelings?
I guess the "big 3" would be Windows, macOS and Linux, which all have their uses... but once you get on Linux it's hard to get off (same goes with Windows or macOS)

Thanks! PC building is frightfully absorbing, but I love it :)

I have an MSI Gaming X one from Ebay for $140 and it's pretty bad build quality, but I'm not throwing it around or anything, it gets the job done.

It's not a bad deal, strictly speaking, but all those parts are fairly dated (1-2 years old). It's as much as you can expect from a prebuilt, but honestly if you're on this site already you may as well build your own PC. It's Dell so IIRC they use proprietary power connectors which means you can't change the motherboard or PSU. (maybe it's HP that does that correct me if I'm wrong)

Ah I see. You're right, you definitely don't need to be at the office to account. Someone has to, though if you work rather than own a firm I guess that's not your problem.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "in your opinion, which jobs make the happiest people?"

From working in an accounting office, I can say that once you've got a clientele, you can't move. You need to buy official letterhead with your address, and you need to be able to meet with clients throughout the work day in a professional environment. There are also different tax laws in different provinces that require studying. The people who work there are really happy, though I don't think that's because they are accountants.

From my perspective, trades make the happiest people. They are fulfilled people, who spend their lives doing a task to excellency, and getting paid really well for it. Plumbers often seem really happy just to be plumbing! Despite the comparative lack of flexibility in work, I think tradespeople are the happiest.
