Basically i wanted "good" PC so this is it.I build it myself.I chose the parts based on reviews.I just need a new monitor,but ill do that in near months,because i'm still thinking what to chose exactly 28 or 32.

Part Reviews

CPU

It's super fast and if u upgrade from i5-2500k u can see a big difference.

CPU Cooler

It's quiet and it keeps the temps at OK

Motherboard

To be honest it's ****, can't overclock I can't enter bios after update and thinking of getting a new one.

Storage

It's amazing and super-duper fast!

Video Card

Best Gpu I've owned, do recommend.

Case

Great case if u have extra fans to keep the dust out.

Optical Drive

It does the job.

Keyboard

I don't like it, too many buttons..

Mouse

Good mouse, but battery life is really short.

Mouse

Great and comfortable mouse with many features.

Headphones

Sound quality is great, but they are really tight.

External Storage

Now u have space for everything u want.

What exactly is the use? Just gaming? Rendering/editing?

TakeMyShit submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Gaming only brah

cool, but you overpaid for some stuff, don't need an i7 to game. But hey, your money, your system. play on!

Can u explain please?

i5 is more than enough for gaming, i7 is for more work related uses: rendering, video/photo editing, programming maybe. That's $100 saved right there.

A 1tb ssd feels like too much, especially if you have 3tb for storage, along with the external. the OS alone doesn't take up more than 100gb. a 500gb or maybe as low as 250gb ssd would've sufficed in m.2 format. There's another $150-200 saved.

A better psu should have been selected. Preferably modular and with a higher efficiency rating.

Like I said, it's your money, just could've been used a little more efficiently, IMHO.

Hey I was just wondering how many frames are you getting in game? I have a 1080 and I was just curious how well the 1070 ran on this monitor.
