This build took me about 7 months to finally get all the pieces together i have been needing a computer extremely so i could finally get back into programming since i am going to college for programming and modeling. I have only been in the basics of programming but am trying my best to make the most perfect computer so i could make my dream come true and i believe that after my labtop fried this computer will be more than enough. I could only use my phone as my computer since i was saving up every penny from each pay check as best i could so i could buy every piece that i needed and when they went on sale. After working so long and looking at so many prices thanks to pcpartpicker.coom i finally got all the pieces together and made my first build a reality and it programms wonderfuly and even games with the best of them. im so happy with all this build has tought me about building computers and so glad to be back into pc gaming after so many years :DDD
Review from personal use.
Intel Core I7: Is perfect for fast programming and makes for amazing performance.
Coller Master Hype 212 Evo: Is a very quite and very great at blowing the heat out of my pc i defiantly would recommend it to anyone not going for water cooling.
Artic Cooling MX-2: Was easy to smooth on my cpu and was very cheap would buy again.
ASRock Z77: Has been nothing but a blessing for my build its run perfectly for the month i have used it and the bios menu is very easy to navigate and with all the ports on the back i cant help but fall in love with the board every second i turn on my computer.
G. SKill Ares 16gb: Is more than enough to run even the most graphic demanding games and makes for amazing speed in a time of need thinking of buying again to fill it out.
Samsung 840 evo 120g: Is so fast and wakes up my computer like a beast i havent gotten to use a ssd before but after i have used this one i cant go back to having all my boot options on the hdd anymore with this awsome speed.
Western Digital Caviar Blue 320G: Was given to me by a friend that moved up to a bigger storage device and i decided to try it out since i needed storage at the time and it worked fine just got filled up so fast it was unbelievable so its a back up storage now but works perfectly fine for small storage options.
Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB: If i can only say one thing about this storage device its would have to be thats its awsome and would defiantly buy again if need be. This storage device can handle holding massive programs and can hold any size game that is trown at it like its the size of a fly love this storage device.
Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB: This video card is not the most advanced but upgrading to this instead of the 780 was perfect for me because im not going after graphics and modeling to much so its fantastic for what i need and if i need to i can sli this beast on my budget and would defiantly recommend this amazing piece of hardware to anyone.
Cooler Master Storm Trooper: This case is so huge and has fans that are lighted so defiantly not your average case it will fit any board with ease and ready to take all your storage devices and keep your pieces cool and ready to go hard for anything and keep chugging like its an average day.
Corsair 700W: This PSU gave me all the cords i would ever need and more and never get hot it matchs my color scheme easily and if need be is ready to change colors and keep running hard. Down side is the fan is never on since my case is kept so cold.
Asus DRW-24B1ST: this dvd drive is perfect for my Build it gives me everything i want and not high price i do not want my computer to run blue rays while my ps4 can do that " when i get a ps4" its quite on reading and quite on writing nothing else needed to be added on this amazing dvd player.
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: Is defiantly a must buy if it has every feature you could ask for and not confusing to use its all there for you nothing else can be said.
Asus VS238H: This Monitor honestly scared me before i bought it because i knew it dose not have mounting connections but have to say that with the price for this monitor and how good it is on response time and size i would defiantly buy this monitor over and over again because it just works so amazinlg on any game i throw at it.
Kingwin FPX - 003 multi-function fan controller: I was looking foward to buying this fan controlelr the moment i saw it and im so happy i bought it because it matched my color scheme and told me the temperature. However after installing the new fans i found out that they didnt run as fast as they could unless they were plugged into a certain connection and BAM this fan controller had the exact connections that the fans needed worked out amazing :DDDD.
Corsair Raptor K50: Such a suprise for a keyboard i didnt expect much from this keyboard this was a keyboard that i bought because i needed a keyboard that could keep up with the color scheme or my computer and have versatility incase i needed to play games or program. This keyboard is not mechanical which is a bummer but since its basicly half the price of a mechanical and can do everything like a mechanical keyboard i say its perfect for a person on a budget and needing a awsome keyboard.
Skullcandy PLYR 1: These headphones are something new from skullcandy to me i didn't know if i trusted the new inovation to the brand or not but decied to give them a shot since they went on sale and BAM awsome headphones for everything i can play online with. My xbox 360 and pc and i can go anywhere and have awsome wireless 7.1 headphones they make a huge differance in what i usted to use with all the annoying cords and simulated surround sound. These headphones work great but have a flaw with the volume controller and the mic piece starts to lose its stability after many uses. Would still recommend to friends that are trying to use multiple consoles or pc.
Logitech Z323: These speakers are such a suprise they have amazing bass that i thought would not come from anything under 100$ and they sound great for voices to i listen to music on them all the time and i only usted to listen to music in my car. These speakers are defiantly worth the price incase you play games, watch anime, or love music they are a must buy incase you are looking for cheap great speakers.
UTechSmart Laser Gaming Mouse: One of the best buys i think i have every done for buying a mouse. This mouse is beautiful and works like a charm it keeps up with the 8200 DPI they said it could do. my eyes can't even comprehend whats going on that fast but this mouse can make my jaw drop with how great it is. This mouse is build for bigger hands than most and is not for everyone its colors can chante but the left light dose stay blue for DPI settings just fair warning.
ALL BITFENIX SPECTRE PRO Fans: These fans are an amazing piece of work with all the features and connections you can think of. They are one of the most beautiful led fans that you can buy and are a little more expensive but defiantly worth the price to keep my computer cold and looking amazing. Con on these fans are that they need a special connection to make sure and run at full throttle "described in fan controller".
Thank you if you read all this and I loved making this first build :D
thumbs up for lelouch "code geass" or not :D
