Well any way i look at it, +1 for another Canuck builder. I build regularly for others but am too lazy to post all my pics here :P And too cheap to build my own dream rig lmao

yah... rifle bearings do that... Quiet till you fire something at it ;) but fabulous build in terms of a bit of future proofing. I see an i5 in this little engines future ;) Jus remember, Windows CAN be picky when doing that... especially OEM. Good luck!

Looks like a thumbs up from the Disney lovers lol. But well put together, and yah agreed 120mm water cooler fans are a tad more feasible in mATX cases unless you get creative, but looks fantastic the way you did it. Only one thing missing... Can't have a Z without a K :P well done

NCIX is my closest retailer that provides, otherwise it's Memory Express. everything else might be a shade lower but NCIX has free shipping and ME is in Calgary. Alberta has... minimal good electronic outlets. And the price point has dipped there more than once on US side

Grinds my gears, US you can get a 4790K for ~$260-280. In Canada, $400+. But, cest la vie. Nice build mon ami, and I do agree, you should have that SSD (see what I did there, Poetic eh?)

Man... I am a good dad to my kids... BUT if they want $2000+ PC each... good bloody luck lol. They can live with the E 8400's with GTX460's they have :P Otherwise good cable management, and fun description. Make sure to repost when the H100i is in +1

All good I'm just one of those people who nitpicks all details in my personal builds and client builds... And dammit if it has HDMI I AM USING IT :P

May have to do a reinstall of the OS, I imagine you used Unetbootin and the "Qiana" distro. when booting from USB/Disk make sure you hit tab and enter "nomodeset" at the end of the command lines, then once the OS has loaded load the GPU driver manually. More common with the Nvidia GTX series but can happen with the new APU's. Also could try the Zorin Core 9 OS for more of a "Windows while being Linux" distro. Secondly.. I hate to say it but use Chrome for flash based apps if not in the technical knowledge to use GNASH. Have fun, hope this helps

for the SSD issue, get that double sided Velcro and place anywhere convenient, looks clean and doesn't limit you. As for the CPU/GPU issues, very unlikely to bottleneck easily, and all in all you have expandability in the CPU department. But for general use the i3's are a great choice especially for the single threaded tasks (browsing, video's etc). Well done lil miss, well done... and secondly... Why not take advantage of the HDMI instead of the DVI-VGA combo you have going on there to the monitor? Just curious

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/ziggurat666/saved/F4PcCJ you can have a lot of fun with APU's and little cases ;) and that APU will run 720p and 1080p and acceptable levels for the non-enthusiast

Everybody has such a hate on for Medium level GPU's, it's kinda funny. Here is something to thing about, especially on the 750Ti. A) able to run purely on PCI-e power, no need for external power hookup B) low power draw for R7 265-R9-270 level performance. C) unless running Dual Monitor 1440p or 144hz outputs with max setting 4-8X AA... WHY IN THE BLOOMING WICKET do you need to spend $350 on a GPU when you actually can use cores for MORE THAN GAMING!!! lol... phew (cools down with another espresso) This is a fanatstic 1080P High/Ultra graphics level machine. Good job OP on first build, only other thing i will mention is SSD maybe first for boots and quick access. Otherwise great first build :)

I won't say it's a mess... I promise (cough) but i will make a small possible tweak. on the reverse side on the inside backplate drill 4-6 small holes, daisy the cabling then chain out to where you need and zip tie the daisy to the backplate... looks like a coiled solid wire plus you get interference shielding. jus make sure you dry run the cables before drilling... "Assuming" makes an a** of you and me ;) and +1 for being a recycler

Phew.. glad there are no skidmarks in them skivvies :P looks like a solid revival of a good old 775. Well put together, but cables are always a fun part. spend a bit of time on them and you will be amazed at the difference it makes. zip ties and patience, zip ties and patience... did i mention zip ties? ;)

EEEP! Tight like tiger.... but not bad all in all. Agreed on those thin tin POS back panels. Could always look at local stores for external antenna's with smaller receptacles to try and fix that. Unfortunate that the GPU is blocked like it is to but such is the world of ITX. I almost always do APU's just for that reason, simplicity. but +1 from me

+1 for what i thought was a Destiny reference ;) honestly good price/performance with room to go big. when you do double up RAM, maybe go for lower latency or a little bit faster speed (1866 or 2133Mhz) but other than that solid. And cooler options are always fun, Air is cheaper, water is neater, but all in all it's your decision. Good on ya!

May want to invest in a cooler... seems the stock cooler is a tad behind. If wanting to keep with color theme, suggest maybe this guy http://www.lepatek.com/eng/product_content/31/1/70/ good CFM, not a bad price. Otherwise nice theme and great build +1

Gotta love CAD... especially right now. Take all US pricing, and pretty much add 20% + shipping :'( My wallet hates my computer addiction. The endorphins on the other hand make up for it. http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/ziggurat666/saved/6brWGX http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/ziggurat666/saved/MtXFf7 pair of similar builds of mine so you did good :)

750 Ti outbenches the r7 260X http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2815&cmp[]=2701&cmp[]=2766

On top of that, the 260X has nearly no memory support and nearly twice the power draw on average. You might have meant the R9 270. Other than that, nice Budg build. And no, this isn't the Radeon/Geo War... yet ;)
