Description

Bought most parts in China (Cheap), the cpu+mobo combo costed GBP243, PSU was some Chinese brand, GBP20, Case came free with the online combo, Ram came free with the mobo combo.

Bought the video card in the UK as its the most expensive part, and I would prefer to have proper warranty on it. I had to buy the H7 Cooler as the stock cooler was so loud it was disturbing.

Keyboard and mouse was from before, i used to connect my laptop to a monitor instead of a pc.

The GTX 1060 was able to meet my gaming requirements and i didnt want to spend any more money on this build, as a dental student, i have very limited time for gaming. The wide screen was really helpful for looking at multiple lecture documents and stuff.

This is a budget build, had to save quite a few months for this, hope it will last a few years until i graduate.

Update

-Been getting kernel-power 41, random shut downs, suspect its because of the cheap PSU, bought an EGVA G2, and gona see how thats gona workout.

-Got a EVGA power link

-Laser cut the side panel for extra air flow

-Changed fan for a noctua fan

CPU

Enough for everyday tasks and gaming.

CPU Cooler

So much quieter than the stock cooler.

Storage

Nothing went wrong, what else should I expect from a SSD?

Video Card

GTA V, witcher 3 ultra at 45-60fps. 0dba mode when im not using it. Underload reaches around 70 degree max.

Seems to be only the PSU that's Chinese brand. The mobo, cpu and ram were bought there but well known brand. Let's hope the PSU lasts him a good while.

I would make some research about that PSU... Not saying it is, but a firecracker PSU will do more harm than good.

This will definitely last you for a few years. Great build :D
