After much saving and sacrificing, a machine was built! Naming the machine Type Y1, this is my first PC ever built.
Primary purpose: Online gaming, programming, photo editing, school work
Why Not Skylake D: Answer: The original plan was to go Skylake with an i3-6100 but for some reason stock magically disappears after making a stock inquiry.
P.S. I know, my external cable management sucks.
Due to budget reasons I had no choice but to get an i3. At that time it's either i5 now but crap GPU or i3/Anniversary chip with good enough GPU.
It's a decent processor and can get the job done for gaming and some light video editing. Just don't expect too much from it because it is a "quad" core (hyperthreaded dual core)
RAID support and Crossfire support, for the price it was too good to be true (at least where I lived). The motherboard is sturdy and the VRM/Chipset heatsinks are beautifully designed. My only complaint would be that of the ugly UEFI but other than that, great motherboard! Definitely recommended for people who want RAID but don't want to overclock.
CL9 1600MHz, and it's dual channel. Memory is memory and it does get the job done. For the price, it's a good deal too.
I did not include an SSD in my build because I didn't have the money for one at that time but I don't think I'll be needing an SSD yet because this drive is fast. Not as fast as a WD Black but it is really fast. 3-5 second-ish boot times wooo!!
It's a Seasonic. It's $60. It's tier 2 in the list. JUST GET IT.
