I mainly use this machine for gaming. I mostly play DayZ Standalone, BF4, Arma 2, Arma 3, Minecraft, and a few other games. I really like the color scheme being black and green. I did not actually think of it when I bought the parts, but it worked out in the end. I originally had a pc with the same mobo paired with an fx 4130 and a HIS radeon 7770. I finally saved up enough money from my part time job at jimmy johns to upgrade to this green machine. Some stuff I kept like the mobo, cpu, and the ram because I felt like they didn't need upgrading. Also, I wasn't trying to go all gamer bling. I wanted something sudle and nice.
CPU: Mainly because I didn't want to buy a new mother board to fit a intel cpu. I got this from my old build and I dont feel the desire to buy a brand new intel cpu and mobo just to get a "little" better fps.I plan on overclocking when I can.
CPU Cooler: I have herd great reviews and it keeps my cpu extremely cold, for a cheap air cooler. Motherboard: As I said, I got this from my old build and it still was compatible with everything I bought and I have no complaints. It also overclocks really well for a basic board.
RAM: Good, cheap, reputable, ram that is also fast enough
Storage: This was not the only one I have in my build, the rest are just mixed matched ones that I have token out of old laptops and desktop round the house.
Video Card: I was originally going to get a r9 280x but those f'n crypto-miners raised the price, so I have settled with the beast of a card that will handle anything.
Case: Also from my old build, but it looks really nice, has a fan controller on it, and has good air flow and cable management.
Power Supply: It was on sale at microcenter and I couldn't resist
Optical Drives: YOLO, it works, and the only why I got one is because of my Microsoft Flight Simulator X
OS: got it cheap though my school.
Monitor: Got it really cheap at microcenter. I don't see the 16ms response time, but I wish it was better.
Keyboard: I couldn't resist customizing my own keyboard... even if it was a little more expensive. the keyboard in the picture is not the one i ordered, the one I bought is still in the mail.
Mouse: recommended by all my friends and it EXTREMELY comfortable compared to my old mouse. And it looks sweet.
Headset: 7.1 Audio. the bass is f'n amazing. the highs are meh though. but I got it for a great price on a sale.
If you think there are any problems or bottlenecks, please comment. Also, tell me if you like the looks and the cable management.
