Description

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.

Amazing cable routing. Sound FX on the motherboard looks sick. Overall a great build! :) How hard was it to put the LED kid in?

Thanks! The LED kit is just a strip which you stick on. If you do plan on getting it, I would advise on getting some stronger adhesive to stick them down with. The stock adhesive which comes with it doesn't last too long they've started to fall off due to the heat in the case.

Thanks for the advice! I will definitely do that. :)
