This is my fist build and i am 16 years old. Payed for most of this stuff myself.
I live on Guam so prices are different because of expensive shipping.
Name: It is what i felt when it was complete and the case is called thor. Thor+Orgasm= Thorgasm
CPU: i went with ivy, overclocks well, went with an i7 for video editing.
Motherboard: Went with a pricier motherboard because of the onboard audio and it looks pretty slick :)
Cpu cooler: Went with the h220 because it is the best performing all in one liquid cooler right now and it is expandable so i swapped the tubing and liquid. I love the way it turned out.
Ram: I went with 16gb of 1866mhz ram, again for video editing.
Storage: went with a 128gb 840 pro, performs great. 1tb caviar black, not much to be said.
Video card: This was my final purchase and it is a very nice card. Absolutely love it. I went with the direct cu ii because my case has a side fan and i know that big heat pipe will benefit from direct air.
Case: Went with an underdog case. I have no problems with this case and so far, its been amazing, Cable management is very clean with this case.
PSU: bought it from a friend BRAND NEW IN BOX for cheap, $120, enough for sli with 780 if i want to in the future.
Keyboard: I bought this black widow ultimate for a great price. $50
Please, constructive criticism is appreciated.
