Lemme give some context. I'm a college kid, and I enjoy gaming and music production, but for most of my life, I've used very low end computers because I've bought and owned consoles up until this latest generation. As I've gotten better at my craft (production), I've demanded more of my computers, and a dual-core i3 with 4 gigs of RAM just wasn't enough anymore. So, I decided to kill two birds with one stone.
CPU: My room is absolutely tiny, so I wanted to go with a cheaper mini-ITX build. There really isn't any ITX mobo support for socket AM3+, so I went with Kaveri. Also comes with BF4. I mean, come on. BF4. It's intended to run it on it's own with the entire APU thing, but I went with a separate card anyway.
Cooler and Compound: Newegg had a refurbished H60 available for a decent price, so I snagged one. Doesn't require a motherboard removal for FM2+, so that's a HUGE plus.
Muvaboard: It seemed like a good choice, WiFi capabilities are definitely a plus. I won't claim to be an expert on motherboards and their functionality, so lemme have it if I goofed here.
RAM: I've been told several times to go Corsair, so I did; the LP are tiny, and they fit in snugly alongside the other components.
Storage: I plan on adding a SSD soon, but for now, this is fine for my needs.
Graphysics: A buddy of mine just upgraded to a GTX 770, and he knew I was getting into the entire PC thing, so he offered me the card and PSU for $175 total. I couldn't pass it up. It's also not an EVGA card; it's just NVIDIA, but there wasn't really an option to change that here, so hey.
PSU: See the above statement.
Case: I did the all black look, and it's actually got a lot more space than I thought.
Random: Picked up a couple HDMI cables from Monoprice and got the Logitech keyboard because it was 20 bucks on Amazon at the time.
I know that my cord management could be a thousand times better, but y'know. I'd say I'm pretty proud of the little trooper.
