I was 12 when I built this computer (I am now 13) and my family owns and runs a tractor dealership, and it was getting time to replace the computers. So they bought pre-built ones and they worked for little while. But then I got into the computer building stance and asked my dad (one of the owners) if I could build them a computer. He thought about it for a little while and then finally said yes. So I started on PCPP to find a build that I liked and would make a few changes to. Found one and started changing it. But then when I tried to order the parts off of amazon (which is where we have prime), some of them where not available. So I went and made some hasty revisions and finally got a list that would be compatible and could be ordered from Amazon. When they got here, I was as excited as I could be! So I started in, and finally (after a few days of finding the right plugs and time) got it fully built. Buuuuut here is when my most noobish mistake happened. So I had heard about the common way of installing the operating system: the SSD for operating system and reg 7200 RPM drive for everything else. But I thought I knew more than I did. So I had both plugged in when I installed the OS. But later when I went to remove the SSD (for another purpose) it would not boot up. For the life of me I could not figure out why, until I looked at a PC building mag. It told me about windows installing system files on both drives if they where both plugged in. So I now know this, and I will be smarter, but for this build it will have to work (I do not want to have to reinstall and go through all of that again). So now It is finished!
PS: I am on this site a TON and if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments and I will answer them ASAP.
Update: Yes I know I am TERRIBLE at cables, but this case has little to no cable management so I had to go with what I had (which was not much if you cannot tell).
Great CPU! works great as a workstation and OK as a Gaming system even with a pretty pathetic graphics card.
Pretty good card, works well with what I will use it for.
Really bad case, little to no cable management and the side panels are time consuming to get off and once you get them off, the mounting plates for the HDs are really aggravating to get said HDs onto, especially the 2.5" one, it is almost impossible to get more than 1 on a bracket. But the case does feel sturdy, I have to say that for it.
