Description

So my boss asked me to build a pc for him, that is good for work and also can handle lite gaming and my budget was up to 1000 dollars. So I decided to build this pc.

The build itself ok I had a few problems with the connectors and the motherboard but the rest seemed to work well. The motherboard was a bit to wide to fir between the case and the power supply brakes, but after squeezing and finding a way to put it in it was fine. After I was done installing the motherboard I wanted to connect all the cables but then realised that I didn't have enough space. So I had to take it out and connect everything first and then put it in. The cable ties that come with the PSU are not enough. The rest of the build worked fine and had no problems. If you get this case, don't forget to flip the power supply switch like I did.

Anyway it ended up being a nice build and my boss seems to be happy with it and the speed of it. Hope you like it.

I choose this CPU since it wasn't excessively because it fit well in the price range and it does have a good enough performance for the suff he needs.

The GPU is overpowered of this build but I guess I had enough budget left and I mean you can never have to much power.

The SSD makes it able for a fast operation system, he doesn't really need more then 250 GB. This allows for fast boot times and fast response times.

The case had to be small and easy to carry, I wanted to go for the new fractal design but it wasn't out yet and I only had a week left and this is going to be enough.

Motherboard and memory are enough and good for this build if not even overkill.

The rest of the stuff is self explanatory or just stuff that he needed like a monitor, mouse or keyboard.

Hope you like it.

At first I didn't think you had enough power supply, but you're under 200w with that combo so I was wrong. Nice build, small, quiet (better be with all the BeQuiet stuff in it) and not so much GPU that he'll be too busy playing games to get any work done..! Hope the boss threw in a nice bonus for you (when he's not playing LOL or Minecraft or something), you deserve it!

Interesting choice of keyboard. I'm sure this is more than powerful enough for your boss!

That is exactly what I did too ... I couldn't get it to turn on and tried a bunch of other things because I didn't want to have to unpack everything out of the box just to flip the power switch.

Very nice build. I'm looking to something similar in the next few weeks and wanted to ask about the RAM in this build. Did you have clearance for 2 sticks of that RAM? I'm just wondering if I need to go low profile if I want to use both slots for RAM.

With that ram there was barly any space either get slimmer heatsinks or jet a low profile one and thanks Man

hey love the build i was wondering if you used low profile ram would the shadow rock lp beable to fit over the ram so you can have both ram slots filled?

I think like it is at the moment you could fill both memory slots but i don't remember it 100% anymore any other configuration didn't work. But not sure anymore so I would double check.

You managed to get a SSD, an i5, and a GTX750 TI in a small build for $1000 including all the peripherals. That's a good job!

I think it's an overall nice build, and very quiet as well.

If I had to knock anything at all, it would be that a cheaper mini-itx case could be used; one that doesn't require the SFX standard. It is sharp looking at least. I have one myself. ;)

Overall, +1 on the build.

Thanks man appreciate the complements. :P

I don't remember that well anymore since this was 2 years ago but as much as I remember I had to fight a fair bit with the memory. This was the only orientation where it fit without a problem on both slots if I remember correctly but I would double check again. Sorry for not giving the most useful answer
