Building a computer!


#1. Post Posted: 08-15-2019, 02:19 AM
So I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop, and the power supply fan was going nuts, and it would happen at random, and then i had video dropout issues, and so i decided to return the computer to Dell for a refund. I completed the return today, and have decided to build my own, as what dell is currently offering cannot be beat, by what i can build myself. and if i build myself, i choose the parts, and therefore the quality, and or lack thereof. Here is the build i plan to do!

I can help, how much budget you got and what kind of setup are you looking for?
Low, Mid or High Range?

EDIT : I see that you picked yourself build but you forgot to include graphics card, as you chose 1000w, that means you will looking for high-ultra range GPU, right?

Almost everyone goes overboard on the power supply.
You could cut corners on the case and get something more simple.
Also Scd key for windows 10 key is about $15 but make sure to use paypal. So far I have had no issues with either of my keys
Also you can get Windows 10 for free if you use a .edu email account to sign in.

I did not include a graphics card, as i have an XFX 550 graphics card that i will be installing in the build. The power supply is for future proofing, and the case, i liked the idea that it looked like a mini fridge, and also included the bottom slot for adding a disc drive. The case you could say is also future proofed.

Ah okay, you should said that before. For PSU, you should get at least 500 watt. Case looks nice but looks expensive (maybe?)
If you want, you can get other great cases with max support of MicroATX. It depends on you, though.

Well, i got my refund back earlier than expected from dell, and i ended up ordering most of the parts. I bought my case, motherboard, ram. and processor, for a little over 1000, and this week i will be buying another component, as i also have the phone bill. I can either buy the power supply, or i can buy the 360mm liquid cooling All In One. which should i buy first. Really excited for this first time build of mine, but after a not so great experience with a Dell Inspiron 5676, i decided i was done, and if i was going to get another new computer, and the dell was my first new computer, i was going to build my own!

In my opinion, get PSU first. As CPU includes stock cooler, you can get that AIO cooling later.
Rig that is at fully operational is mandatory.
