This is my business computer. I am an IT consultant / developer. I will use the system for development and business activities. Word processing, spreadsheets, email and web browsing. I will also use it to stand up an sftp server.
Favorite FeatureMy favorite feature was the ability to build this without having to buy an OS. I wanted to get away from Windows so I installed Ubuntu. Plus the overall compatibility of all the parts and the fact that I could pick and choose the kind of computer I wanted to build rather than finding one that the manufacturers produced that would fit my needs.
I would also like to thank the tech support people at Micro Center. They were very helpful and answered my questions quickly on line. Customer service was great as well. When I went to pick up my order, the associate saw that my build was missing a key component, the cpu cooler, and he asked another associate to get one for me so I would not have to get out of line. Very considerate.

MAINGEAR Vybe RGB Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - Black

I bought this case because the size was listed at 7-7/8 inches wide because I had a desk with an 8 inch opening for a computer. The actual size however was 8-5/8 which was a little disappointing. There were no other cases under 8 inches so this was my only choice. Anyway, I like everything else about the case.
