UPDATE: Added new pictures
I've been using a gaming laptop for about 5 years and after the two-year mark is when it began to slow down and become outdated. I wanted to get this computer in the summer of 2015, but I ended up not getting enough money. I finally was able to pay for it and built it on Christmas Eve. I'm mainly using this for gaming and watching movies. The build surprisingly ended up working out very smoothly. Didn't run into any problems although I do wish I had gotten a better toolkit because I ended up dropping a few screws behind the mobo quite frequently.
Intel Core i5-4690k: Very responsive and fast CPU. I will be overclocking soon once I get an aftermarker cooler. There is one problem I had with this CPU: THE DAMNED STOCK COOLER. The stock cooler is terrible, I ended up putting it on wrong the first time (don't ask why) and I'm pretty sure I screwed the placement on the pre-applied thermal paste. I have ordered a new cooler that will be more reliable and will have room for overclocking.
MSI Z97A GAMING 6: Very good looking board, I love the color scheme on it and it will fit well with what I have planned for upgrades.
Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB 1600MHz: Not sure how to criticize RAM... I mean the heat spreaders are pretty cool lookin'.
Mushkin ECO2 120GB: Not currently using as my boot drive because I messed up on the OS installation because I accidentally used the 32-bit install instead of the 64-bit. Didn't let me install the new OS install on the SSD so I just did it on the hard drive. I am planning on switching that soon though, other than that it is a good SSD. Not amazing but it came with the deal.
Seagate Barracude 1TB: It's a hard drive.
Gigabyte Radeon R9 380 2GB: Great card, I almost ended up going with the GTX 960 as I am an Nvidia fanboy (sorry). But I'm actually glad I went with this one considering it tends to perform better than the GTX 960. No problems so far, definitely one hell of an upgrade from 2010 Laptop GPU.
NZXT S340: I love the sleek black design on this case. Real good airflow. Only problems are the incredibly difficult drive cages for the hard drives and the easy scratch/smudge glossy side panels.
Rosewill ARC 650W: Nothing bad to really say about this PSU except that it's not modular in any way so it's a bit difficult to route the cables through the case. Definitely will do for now and will last long enough for me.
