As a complete novice, I was a bit intimated by trying to build a computer. So I decided to try my luck with a budget build but it definitely does not run as one. So far I mainly play Player Unknown's Battleground and easily get over 100 frames on high. The switch from the gaming laptop I had, has been a great upgrade. Boot times are fast and everything is running smooth. I did have one problem with installing the HD but just had to switch the sata ports on the motherboard. A month in and everything works great! Happy I built it and cannot wait to build another one!
