@ Original Poster, you can look into getting a Powerline adapter if you want ethernet. It's basically magic :)

+1 Very aesthetically pleasing build and I'm glad you included the part about having a difficult time with the cooler. I feel like more of these builds should include stories about which parts of the build gave people the most trouble.

I suggest getting a CPU cooler to get those temps down. Otherwise, pretty good budget build.

+1 Excellent. I am a big fan of recycling parts and I love your cable management in that case.

For the future: upgrade to 8GB of RAM and get a 4 core CPU if you plan to stick with Intel.

+1 This is almost identical to the computer I am currently building. Mine is intended for streaming gameplay and editing videos and photos but not gaming so I have omitted the GPU.

+1 Very interesting build. How is the dust situation? Do you need to clean it regularly? Do you keep the computer covered when not in use?

+1 Nice parts. This is my streaming build (reminded me of your build because of the case). No GPU yet but I don't need it immediately as I don't plan to game on this machine until this August. I stayed on-budget as well which I agree is incredibly difficult once you catch the building bug.

This should be able to handle the basics as well as portal 2 on low (maybe medium). Nice job on part selection with the limited budget!

I agree with xenith, check if your motherboard is OC capable since you have an unlocked CPU.

Nice part choices, you should be able to game and multitask with no problems. If you are overclocking I would suggest going with an aftermarket CPU cooler.

How was the build process? Was cable management good? I'm strongly considering getting this case.
