CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sleeved, and fans that accidentally touch cords won't rip them.
Two free sata cables, one straight and one at a 90* angle.
It's not *that* loud but it can be heard.

Cons: Not modular. Without a coupon, I'd upgrade, otherwise with a coupon it's a great deal.

Rosewill LINE-M - Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case -  Dual USB 3.0 Ports, Dual Fans Included, Supports Up to Four (4) Fans and Up to 12.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Beautiful!
Two nice fans.
Bottom-mount for an SSD.
Useable key-less bay mounts.
Plenty of screws.
Mini speaker for doing a POST if you don't have a monitor yet.
USB3.0 on the front!

Cons: Cable management is harder than most.
Since things are somewhat cramped, you may not be able to tighten a standoff screw or two. I removed two myself (top right).

Other Thoughts: Ports are pretty stiff, so you can't rip something out without intention. I like that, has that 'homemade' feel.

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W BX80637I53570K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000

Lower than average wattage, high performance.
The integrated graphics are great on their own.

Cons: AMD is cheaper, but doesn't have as great performance.
Drivers can suck sometimes, comes with the chipset.

Other Thoughts: Hear me out on the graphics, because they get blasted on the internet. The integrated stuff uses 1.7gb of ram, which isn't much since you should have ~8gb or more in a quad-core setup. It can run anything you want at 30fps on low, and most things on high-ultra too. You can take a look at youtube members taking video of Battlefield 3 with integrated stuff. The only reason I'd see for a GPU upgrade is if you like the +60fps feel, which I don't care for.
The price is worth it because with this you can easily skip a GPU if you don't obsess over gaming graphics.
Supports up to 32gb ram.
