Thanks I have looked at that one, and also have found RSSOwl, will try them out.

Now if I could find a way to make sites without RSS feeds work also, that would be great.

After a few months, I am curious how is this system doing? I may try to build one almost just like it.

My biggest Question for you is is that Mobo still working ok? What about the I/O shield did you not like? Is it that bad?

AVG Sucks and is Malware/Adware in my opinion. I removed it from my PC and using Malwarebtes now. noticed better performance right away.

update: I tried Malwarebytes and removed AVG, and I am seeing much better performance!

In my opinion AVG is itself Malware and Bloatware, i would recommend not using it...

I would get a 250 or 270 series Mobo so it is ready for that Pentium chip. example.. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pTVBD3/asus-prime-b250m-a-micro-atx-lga1151-motherboard-prime-b250m-a or other 250 Mobos.

You dont need the 29.99 Cooler.. That Pentium comes with a decent stock cooler.

I don't see anything else wrong or that I would change. You can add/upgrade a SSD later if you can't afford it now.

Hi there, its been awhile since you posted this build, But i am wondering do you still like the case? I am looking at getting one. You said it has 5 pre-installed fans? So does that mean you didn't need to buy or install any? I'm guessing yes, but want to make sure.

How is the CPU holding up?

All i can say is have you tried each stick to boot with? Maybe 1 stick is not good and 1 is good. That is my only suggestion.

Maybe someone else will have an idea.

Its been a little while now... how is the CPU doing? has the 8GB of memory been enough?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "My first gaming build!"

for SSD, just get 1 drive like this 1.. http://pcpartpicker.com/product/PMbkcf/sandisk-internal-hard-drive-sd8sn8u512g1122

and the 5400rpm HDD, you should get this 1 instead... http://pcpartpicker.com/product/MwW9TW/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezex

You will save money and have better parts. :-)

As for memory, 32GB may be overkill. look for 16GB at 3000mhz or 3200mhz.

Thanks for the list, a bit cheaper to build yourself.

Thanks for the suggestion on the CPU fan, I will most likely go with that. :-)

As far as the parts, I have them listed from the vendors i saw from a list, I will be buying almost everything from newegg or amazon.

It most likely will be used for stock trading platforms with some gaming.

I am looking at some of the changes you suggested, the CPU I was going to have an i7 and you have an i5. Im wondering arn't i7s better than i5s? Im also worried about overheating if i have an overclockable chip. I dont want to have liquid cooling.

Also Im on a bit of a budget, so I choose a 6GB GPU card instead of 8GB GPU to save money, thinking the extra graphics memory won't make that much of a difference.
