So i finally got around to building my first PC, and it was great!
Note before i start: If your wondering why i said "bought a custom pc" on a thread i posted, i bought another one for old-school games, which is runs my favorite old-school games beautifully!
Anyways lets begin!
AMD Athlon II X64 630
ATI Radeon HD 5770
8GB DDR3 RAM(4x2GB)
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard
Seagate ST1000NM0011 hard drive
Corsair TX 750W PSU
Some cougar case
Building it was pretty straight forward, i did everything you would on a regular build and it booted! One lucky thing is i got everything on my first try, no running into errors or related. Some things that i would have changed is that i could have gone with a 2x4GB setup, but decided not to because i wanted to utilize all slots on the motherboard. One future upgrade I'm gonna make is putting some case fans, because it sure gets dusty in there. Another upgrade would be a new CPU cooler because the stock one is so loud. Other than that it was fun building it and i really enjoyed it. Something i'm planning to do is to cable manage, i didn't do that because i just wanted it to work, i don't have a window so the cables are barely visible but still. It needs some cable management. One thing that made me kinda sad is that it doesn't have any 2.5 HDD/SSD cages. I really need that because I want to install some harddrives and a SSD, that John(ICIT2LOL) gave me, huge thanks to him once again, and my previous HDDs so i can extract data to my new harddrive. I know i can get a disk enclosure but 2.5 cages are really needed here. Any help on that? I'll be attaching some images of the finished rig.
