    It's great, except you dont have a graphics card! Not sure if you'll be playing games or not, but if you are and want to save some money, get an i5 instead and put the $100 towards a graphics card.

    What is your budget btw?

    thanks! my budget is 900, and yeah I wont be gaming so I didnt want to get a graphics card, figured I could always get one if I decide
  3. Ok that makes sense. Your case may be a little bit on the small side (especially if you want to add more components to it so I may suggest one of these instead):

  4. And as for a powersupply, id recommend one with higher wattage (especially if youre going to add a GPU) and a 80 plus rating which means itll last longer and be more reliable. Hopefully this can justify spending a little bit more now, itll save you in the long run:

    Other than that it's a great build!
