This was my first build, overall is a good desktop. The funny thing is I basically got it for free. I traded old video game systems for parts and got the case for Christmas. The only thing I bought was the ram and ssd. I originally was going to use a cooler master storm scout case that a buddy was going to give me. I couldn't have done it with out PCPartPicker. Awesome site with a lot of smart people. The only problem I guess I had, wasn't with the hardware, was installing the ssd as my boot and my hard drive for everything else.
