I am guessing the ryzen 5 2400G has integrated graphics? Nice build too.
I am in the same boat as you. I went to school for IT and got an AAS degree in IT. I am looking to upgrade my computer to something that can run some VMs. I don't have a list for you, but I can tell you the VMs are mainly CPU and RAM dependent. I would say you want 16gb of memory and personally if it was my computer, I would buy a nice xeon chip.
+1 for the CompTIA A+ book, is your friend studying for it?
Newegg has a service where they do that, it is an extra charge during the checkout process.
Little too late. My dad purchased mobo, cpu, gpu today from microcenter. anyway, I don't need gpu power, all I do is runescape, social media, and office tasks.
I think it looks ugly.
this reminds me of that one LinusTechTips video.
+1 for having TechSource on your monitor.
Nope, you answered everything I was wondering about.
Ed from TechSource would be proud of that build.
don't know for sure, but I have seen other builds where people get intel parts for cheap because of a relative working for Intel.
+1 for the great build and nice smile. :)
I am voting for the Nano S build.
+1 for the Resident Evil reference, using a backplate of Umbrella Corporation.
Reminds me of LinusTechTips 7 pc's in 1 case.
I have an 240gb AData one in my desktop and a 128gb ssd in my laptop. All are working after many years. No issues with them for me.
work on the cable management.
during reassembly, if you did not use an anti static wrist band, some static could have gone from your body to a component and fried one of the electrical components?
if it is getting to POST, then the cables are all plugged in. try booting computer with one ram stick installed, maybe one or both of the ram sticks are bad. put a linux distro on a usb drive and boot to it and run a memory check or disk check. the 4690K has onboard graphics, try booting computer without the gtx 780 installed.
The corsair 760T does not come with a PSU shroud, so I made one out of cardboard and black duct tape.
+11111111 for LinusTechTips
does it work in cases not made my NZXT?
Ya, I realized that. Might buy a 4x4 kit of corsair memory using my tax refund or buy some for my birthday.
I am thinking about buying the 250gb version of your ssd. Is it easy to install windows on an m.2 ssd?
I am just curious. If i sold my current desktop build. Could you make a parts list for $1000 max. still being mini itx and using the elite 110 case?
maybe a 750ti or a 950 if it can be fit in the budget
that is good, because I recently started playing runescape again.
+1 for the LinusTechTips
that is a great build, but i have a question. What do you do for a job to afford a computer that costs 5,000 dollars. if you are that loaded, can you pay off my tuition loans, and get my car new brakes? haha
nice build. but seeing the h100i loop bent like that hurts my eyes.
holy moly that is a lot of SSDs/HDDs. not build though, I like your choice of parts.
I like how you have chosen the newest intel CPU and a big beefy air cooler. they should serve you well. You can definetly go cheaper on the SSD. I have an a-data 256gb ssd and I have had no issues with it, and it only cost me around 80 bucks USD. You will like windows 10. they bring back the start menu in some form.
very good budget build. the z97 board allows for upgrade in the future, and a mid tower case that will fit and support SLI or Crossfired GPU's. you could also go water cooling too. good job on cable management considering you are using a semi-modular power supply.
very nice choice of parts. You have the go-to intel core cpu and a gtx 970 GPU, and you can't forget the H440 for its amazing cable management. i am liking the red/black theme. I am more of a zebra theme though.
nice build with older parts. I am curious how that CPU cooler is performing without any fans?
How is your back panel working. I had a Corsair 500R but had to buy a new case, because one of the screw holes for the cable management panel stripped from the bulging from my PSU cables?
pretty good build. You seemed to have thought out what parts would be good for you. You definetly could of gone with a cheaper case, but I like the Enthoo Pro because it has excellent cable management. You will probably want to upgrade the power supply if you upgrade CPU / GPU for your schooling. If you use cpu intensive programs, getting a xeon cpu may help. They are the price of an i5 but minus the integrated graphics and are perfect for cpu intensive programs.
work on cable management. that will increase air flow to your components.
your build is evil because of the total being $666. nice build though. I like these small builds.
I have that same desk. It's an awesome desk for the price. Also nice build.
you will want to add a cpu cooler, as the i7 6600K does not come with one. The hyper 212 evo is the go-to air cooler for rigs these days, but for a higher overclock, a good air cooler could be the be quit dark rock pro3 or one of the big noctua air coolers.
Nexus 5 is still a great phone, I think the picture quality is comparable to my galaxy note 4.
why an overclockable CPU when the motherboard does not support overclocking? other than that, nice build.
Yes that would be correct.
the modem and router are in the office, with the modem connected to what I think it using the kind of cord that gives your tv cable channels. all of my families devices are all connected to internet via wi-fi.
strange setup. One could of made a GTX Titan build with this kind of $$$. and also for this price range, where is the solid state drive.
i used dreamspark. it downloads in .ISO format. if your desktop or laptop had a dvd drive that can write dvd's too, then just burn the ISO to a cd. otherwise use a utility that converts ISO to a bootable USB drive. been doing this for years. works great.
+1 for the cube of rubik. Are you able to solve one?
to afford these builds, you must be selling like lambo's and ferrari on commission based income.
do you have some six figure salary, what is your job that allows spending thousands on a single build?
