I just want to get some opinions on what I did to the hard drive cage and the hard drive. The hard drive is mounted in a 5.25 bay with twist ties xD
I posted this build around 6 months ago and I have worked on cable management and such since then!
CPU: I was looking for something cheap and I saw benchmarks of it VS the 6300 and didn't really see a reason to spend another 20$ (at the time) but now i'm really regretting my decision because it is ALOT weaker in cpu bound games :(
CPU COOLER: Stock cooler was way too loud for my liking so I upgraded it and i'm very impressed with how quiet it is and how cool it keeps my CPU in the Texas heat xD
Motherboard: Looked promising at the time but i'm also regretting not spending a little more to get something that actually has some overclocking potential
RAM: I heard G.skill is the goddess of ram.
HDD: Needed alot of storage for cheap and after looking around Western Digital seemed very reliable.
Video Card: I was looking for something to max out games at 1080p and this thing does provide excellent performance for the money!!
Case: Heard good things about NZXT and this looked good and was cheap.
PSU: Heard horror stories about power supply's destroying computers so I did my research and Corsair seemed to be very reliable, it's quiet and my PC hasn't blown up yet so i'm happy :D
