Description

I needed a PC that could handle intensive video editing using primarily Adobe Premiere Pro and photo editing using Photoshop. My laptop was freezing up and overheating due to insufficient RAM and processing speed. Also I needed a place to save all my videos and photos. I wanted to build on a budget but also had a sharp look. There were some non-essential parts that I saved some money on; this included the video card, keyboard, mouse, case, PSU, and CPU cooler. The essentials were the processor, RAM, MOBO, and SSD. There were some reused parts that I didn't include and that was a 23 inch Dell Monitor, 27inch LG Monitor and a Ergotron Desktop for the LG Monitor.

Future Ideas: - Get a bunch of Corsair Fans with the blue trim the non-led ones. - Water cool it with Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX. - Upgrade to a NZXT H440 Black and blue case. - Get more RAM when needed. - Ger more hard drives, starting to run out. - Blue Sleeved PSU Cables - Get a 4k Monitor, or 27inch Monitor, or UltraWide Monitor, waiting for better prices to bbe used with my other Ergotron Arm

Name... Pandorum?

Always buy desktops, laptops lose their luster fairly quickly. My old Macbook Pro collecting dust is a testament to that.

I would look through this list and pick either tier 1 or tier 2, as tiny mentioned the unit you are using isn't good.

I thought the PSU was better, I just wanted to get something that wasn't too bad but it didn't have to be great. maybe I will upgrade in the future, but what is wrong with this one?

It is just a poor quality PSU. It is a re-labeled FSP unit and performs pretty badly in tests. Horrible ripple suppression and bad voltage regulation.

"Power supply is just a power supply"

This unfortunately is very untrue. That EVGA is actually not a very good PSU.

Note: don't go with the corsair cx series either :P get something from seasonic, xfx, or the evga g2/b2/gs

I wanted to go with a Corsair one, but for now the EVGA should do, there is a slight clicking noise..... what is wrong with it though?

The clicking is probably a cheap-o fan.

Avoid corsair aside form their REALLY expensive stuff. Their budget stuff is not good.
