Once upon a time, I had basically just discovered PC gaming. After exhausting an old Dell that I got for my birthday, I decided I needed an upgrade. After exhausting the HP I had upgraded to, I realized that if I wanted this done right, I would have to do it myself. I saved up my money. I did the research. I educated myself. Finally, the day came when I slapped together a parts list and hit the 'order' button.
In hindsight, I kind of wish I'd spent a little more money on the gpu, but I can't really change it now. Besides, the cpu is pretty good for my video editing. If I have anything to complain about, however, it's the case. It was much bigger than I expected, (though I guess I should have paid more attention to the listed dimensions lol) the bottom psu slot meant I had to order an extension cable, not to mention the psu barely fit in it to begin with, and the motherboard ports cover doesn't fit at all. So you can literally look inside from the back.
On a final note, the listed prices for the parts have changed since I ordered them; most of them were from newegg.
