First of all I just want to say that my parents did not pay for a CENT in this rig, I had been saving for 4 years.
There isn't much to say here. She's clean, and runs like a champ. (still debating what to name her :P) CPU - good for gaming and I will soon be overclocking once my all in one cooler comes in. Although, It's still plenty fast enough for me on a stock clock.
MOBO - It just looks good. Ok so I actually wanted the blue version but it was out of stock EVERYWHERE. I'm very glad I got this one though.
RAM - This ram is 8gb which is enough for gaming right now, is clocked at 1866, and is low profile so if you do get a beefy cooler it will not be in the way. Not to mention It looks good.
SSD - This was my first time using an SSD and man is it fast. I boot into windows in 14 seconds. That aside, 128gb and $60 (at the time) just made sense.
HDD - This is going to be used (well actually already is haha) as my mass storage. It's a 7200rpm drive so its plenty fast and has one whole TB of storage.
GPU - It doesn't care what I throw at it, it just runs. What can I say about this glorious thing, It has three fans to keep it cool, which in turn makes it look badass. I got the version that makes the WINDFORCE logo light up. And it comes with a backplate - a selling point for me.
CASE - Once again, there isnt much to say. The white looks clean ( especially with the MOBO I have) and simple. It comes with a big side window that lets to see inside (I find myself looking over at it to my right ALL the time) and for me it had effortless cable management.
PSU - It's semi modular, a feature that i found useful. Its a 600 watt power supply, so plenty enough for my specs. Plus it had a lot of good reviews so this is what I went for.
OS - I personally got 8.1 because I like it, and have grown used to it. And in many cases I find it more simple than windows 7.
MONITOR - This panel is amazing. 24" 2ms response time and for being a TN panel, it looks very sharp.
KEYBOARD - It's what I'm typing on right now. I really like the simple design and the blue LED's just go with my build. I'm really liking the blue switches and makes typing more enjoyable. Plus it make a beautiful sound.
MOUSE - I've been using logitech mice for a while now and none of them let me down. This being the best of course, While it did take some getting used to, it fits nice in my hands. And once again the black and blue goes with my build.
HEADSET - Having surround sound comes in hand at many time. Mostly in games like CS GO and such. all around a good headset for gaming and has a very nice sounding microphone.
SIDENOTE - If you know of any cheap, white LED's send me a link because I'd like to buy them to illuminate the inside of my case. Thanks in advance :D.
