New PC Build

#1DrBeePhDPosted 10/17/2013 6:40:53 PM
A few months ago I came on here asking about building a PC. Well, I never got around to buying the build I eventually made, but that's a good thing because it was way too expensive. Here is my new build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1Q4LB

How is it? And I just need a good mouse.

A couple of thoughts:

-I don't really agree with getting a micro ATX motherboard when you have such a nice, roomy case. To me, you get a micro ATX when you're dealing with a small case and there is no other option.

-I'm not quite sure why you went 4570 instead of 4670 since the price is not very different.

Other than that, looks good to me.

Alright, I'll change those things. Remember, I'm still new and suck at this haha.

You got a good mouse you can recommend?

Also can you recommend a good motherboard? Then the build is complete.

See what you think of the tweaks I made here.

-changed the case to the exact same one without the window because it's quieter and $40 cheaper
-added some cheaper, faster RAM that is still excellent quality
-changed to 4670 and ATX H87 mobo (these are non-overclocking which I guessed you wanted based on the original build)
-added a mouse

These are just suggestions, of course. Change anything you want, it is your machine.

Awesome, thanks.

Nicodimus, I appreciate your changes but that new build is over my budget.
#10NicodimusPosted 10/18/2013 6:25:03 PM(edited)
It's about $15 more than your original build when you consider the mouse, so I thought I was in the ballpark.

What is your budget?
