How is this? First time build. Also, I have no clue how to build a PC as I never have done it. Is it pretty straightforward? Am I missing anything? This isn't a gaming build. Just a general programming, office work build.

for that price, you can get 1tb HDD if not more $80 more, get the 3rd gen i5-3570k but of course, this all depends on what you are going to do with it, seems like not much considering you are going for a budget, Micro atx mobo build WHERE DA GPUS BE AT THOUGH

>>30003488 So I'm missing a GPU? Got it. Any recommendations?

>>30003540 I recommend you don't waste money on a gpu if you're not gaming or rendering anything. You might see about getting a bigger hard drive if you think you might need the space

Updated cart. Found a bigger (and cheaper) hard-drive. Got a cheaper CPU with integrated graphics.

i have a very similiar build for my htpc and it would be perfectly fine for video/office work. I would personally go for a different mobo but thats personal preference for me
