This is my first PC build. The goal of this build was to be a mid range gaming PC. Tried to keep the build under $1000 including OS and monitor.
Everything went together swell the first time. No issues. OS on the SSD boots up lightening fast. GTX 960 runs all the games I want on high settings (Civ 5, BF4, HHour). Runs pretty quiet as well.
Freaking love the monitor and got it at a great price with a $20 mail in rebate (the price reflects the $20 off).
Also that gaming mouse for $14 is pretty nice. I have never purchased a gaming mouse before so I figured I would start off cheap.
Could have saved $40 with a non-overclocking motherboard. Could have used that to maybe bump up to a GTX 970 . Oh well.
I was young and naive when I started ordering parts.
Also should have gone with a blu-ray drive. Although I have this fear that if I did buy one I would never use it.
Cable management is sub par. Need to run the CPU power around the back and out the hole in the top left of the case.
Thanks for reading! Comments appreciated.
Edit: GPU arrived after the initial build so it isn't shown in the first picture.
