Building a New PC today

All this PC talk got me hot and bothered, so I'm building my first system with DDR4 memory. The inspiration for a mini ITX build came from the NZXT. Manta case. It has a hub to power up to 8 fans, which is pretty nice considering the fact that the motherboard I ordered only has 2 fan headers. I will probably end up upgrading it with an Nvidia GTX 1000 series GPU next year, assuming I don't get bottlenecked by the CPU. Discuss, berate etc...

Part of the order came (as did I). I got the Windows 10 Pro license from a gentleman in the UK via eBay for $25. We'll soon see if it's legit.

Looks pretty damn nice. Personally, I would have gone for faster RAM (and possibly more of it). It wouldn't cost you much more, and the difference would be measurable. Definitely not a dealbreaker though. Enjoy your rig!

I would have gone for faster RAM, but the motherboard looks like it only supports 2133MHz. And I may get a different PSU, but we'll see how it goes. Thanks dawg. We're PC bros now.
