First time building my own machine. I used parts from a pre-fabricated PC I purchased 3 years ago but added a lot of new components.
New items: Case, PSU, RAM, Motherboard, CPU cooler, and one 7850.
I realized I could have used cheaper components or better components or less of this and more of that, but this build is my own and I love it. I had blast building this machine and still love tinkering around here and there with fans and cable management.
Long term future upgrades: Dual monitors + single high end GPU
