PC Build: What I Have and What I Still Need


Good news! I am just two components away from being able to put together my very first PC build. Here’s what I have so far:

  1. Cooler Master 212 fan
  2. Gigabyte Z97M-D3H motherboard
  3. Thermaltake CoreV21 micro-ATX case
  4. an OWC 120GB solid state drive
  5. a spare Apple keyboard


What I still need are RAM and the CPU. I’m looking at 16GB of RAM and an Intel 4690K I5 processor. I can probably get by with onboard video (instead of a dedicated graphics card) for the time being. If you’d like to sponsor the build, I have the parts I still need on my Amazon Wish List.

I’m willing to trade some design work (or illustration work) for the remaining parts. For corporate sponsors, I could offer advertising on my site for your product or service in exchange for the goods.

Interested? Let’s talk.


Update: Reader Paul R. has generously purchased the 16GB of RAM for this machine, which leaves only the CPU remaining to bring the Robeast to life!
