About to order a new PC
« on: September 23, 2016, 07:54:24 PM »
Hello guys, I'm about to order a new desktop that I want to use for gaming and school-related stuff, but I also thought it would be a good idea to consult other gamers about the build that I've chosen beforehand, as there could be some issue that I'm not seeing or just other products that have more value for money or maybe some bottlenecks or a shabby configuration of parts.
Here's the list:

as regards the case, I chose a cheap one from a Polish producer - SilentiumPC alea s25w, I like its minimalistic appearance and small size, cooling capability and silent (just as the brand suggests) operation. It has received good reviews and fits my budget. (the case costs around $50)

I would be very happy if you could help me make a firm, reasonable choice.
