Ill cut the foreplay and give you what you want (some of the pictures wont upload) http://imgur.com/a/USjuo?gallery . After stereo-typically browsing reddit /r/buildapcsales and /r/buildapc for months and buying pieces slowly one by one my first build is complete! Haven't attempted to OC yet since im still installing programs and whatnot, but it's I will in the near future. I wanted to keep it under a $1000 not included the peripherals so my first build included a 770 with cheap parts but I balanced out the system more I think and went with a 760. I super happy with it and its just amazing feeling seeing something run a 60fps and putting settings on games to ultra for the first time. Also ill neverr go back after getting a mechanical keyboard. Easily my favorite part of the rig. Thanks!
CPU: Because im a sheep and my mobo was on sale. Heatsink: Wanted something different than the typical CM 212 and this was only $5 more. Super easy install compared to what ive seen for the 212. Its whisper quiet and keeps me at ~26c at idle and 40s while gaming. Motherboard: Really liked the look of this board. Was a little more than I wanted to spend , but it was on a pretty good sale on newegg. GPU: Bought this B-stock off EVGA. Card looks fantastic and runs everything at full. Wanted a 770 but ill be more than ok with the 760 until the 800 series comes out. PSU: Kept hearing not to skimp out on this part so I just went with one of the more solid choices. I dont plan to SLI (I rather just buy the newest toy anyway). Silent and Semi-modular and came with bunch of zip ties and Velcro straps which was awesome for cable management. I highly recommend Seasonic. Storage: If you don't have an SSD, buy one right now! The load times are amazing, my comp boots in ~5-6 seconds. Complete game changer. Samsung because it would bother me if I got anything else. Decent amount of storage for right now. Ill pick a 1tb HDD really soon here.
