I am building a computer for the first time and I would like some feedback of my choices. I tried to be as cheap as possible but I wanted to keep expandability and upgradability in mind. I might make it a gaming computer further down the line but I'm never going to be looking for some kind of super high-end gaming computer. I'm also thinking that I may make it a computer for video editing.
I decided against buying a graphics card simply because I wanted to see how my build would work without one and what I mostly use it for first and then shop accordingly.
This was, and still is, mostly designed to be a learning process so try to be nice if there are some things that I still need to learn
So here it is, keep in mind that I went 150$ under my budget. So if there is a place that you feel would be drastically improved by putting some extra money there please let me know.
I'm Also not really impressed with the PSU because it only has one 6 pin PCIe connector. Thermatake is not really all that great. I would suggest a Corsair 500W instead. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That would also provide a little headroom if you decide to get a good graphics card in the future.
Yeah I was thinking about the i5 but I saw that it didn't use hyperthreading so it seemed kind of pointless.
Would it be better to keep the CPU I have now and just invest in better RAM/ graphics card whenever I start to get a better feel of what I'm going to use the computer for?
