The Desktop PC Building Thread - Page 22

Yeah. It is a glossy display and I'm a matte-fan but otherwise it looks great (and it is a desktop so I don't have to worry about glare issues in a coffee shop or something).

Went with the achieva shimian for like $289 since I had an adjustable VESA-mount stand I wanted to use and only needed the DVI input (no reason to pay more for the models with better stands or inputs)

Ordered a new PSU today off slickdeals...so I guess it is time to plan a build to go with it to replace my rapidly aging computer. Normally I would reuse the PSU/case, but I broke part of the case and I suspect that the PSU is failing. Looking to go a bit smaller with a micro-ATX build.

Here is what I am thinking now:

Ignore the video card (reusing mine...it works fine now, should scream with a new computer underneath it and then I can upgrade it again in a year or two).
Mobo and SSD are just relatively random picks that I should probably do more research on.

Any thoughts?
