Re: Homebuilt computer critique for the relative noob
I think the case of the computer is often underrated. When I built my first computer, I thought "what the heck? its just a case, it doesn't make my computer run any faster." well now I'm stuck with a 50 dollar case that sounds like a jet engine in my room. The mesh thing has also fallen out. Even if its a cheap case, buy one from a reputable brand like antec or thermaltake. They offer ~$50 range cases too.
I would stay away from the samsung hdd too. They don't specialize in making storage devices so if you run into any problems its going to be hard to get it resolved. Big brands are good at what they do. I mean, everything else on your list is a major brand, why did you decide to roll with a samsung hdd?
aside from those two points, everything else looks good.
