This is my first build and I am extremely satisfied with it. I have been planning on building my own PC for a while now, but I have just never had the money to actually do it. Since getting a job in November, I've been saving up to make this dream become a reality. So back in January, I started planning out on here and started ordering parts. I am building this for Mostly Gaming and maybe 3D modelling and rendering in the future.
The Case: I wanted something big, white and spacious with good cable management. This ticked all of those boxes and looks spectacular
The CPU: I chose this because it's one of the newest out, and the quad core should help me out when modelling and rendering.
RAM: This is from my older system which I upgraded a few months back, I stole these and put the stock ones back into my other system.
CPU Cooler: I just wanted a CPU cooler. This stood out amongst the others. Will be replacing it to water cooling in the future though as this cooler is a little large and covers one of the RAM slots on the MoBo.
Motherboard: This was one of the most popular and does the job. Love the lights which separate the sound card from the rest of the board.
GPU: I chose this card due to it being powerful, and good looking. If I had a little more money to spend, I would have gone for the 4GB version or a better card
PSU: Does the job, nice and quiet and supplies the power I need. The only thing I don't like about it is the flat cables that come with it. I upgraded these for some White Braided ones which look 10X better!
Monitors: These were recommended to me by a friend who recently purchased 2 of these. I needed an upgrade anyway as my other 2 19" ones with only VGA connection wouldn't do me any good in the future. A handy thing about these is having USB ports built into them. I now don't need to have cables running all over my PC because of all of the USB devices I own.
Update 1: After completing my build and using it for a few weeks, I wasn't completely satisfied with the inside colour scheme. I swapped out the Zalman cooler for a slightly smaller Enermax cooler in white. Sprayed the shell of my GPU white to give it a cleaner look inside.
