This being my first build, I wanted to keep it simple and as low cost as possible, while still giving me decent performance in games and multitasking. So far, I have played CS GO, Dota 2, and Diablo III. All are performing great, I am pleased with performance.
I had a couple of small issues that were easy enough to resolve myself:
Issue 1 - RAM: When I finished building the computer, it would not detect my monitor while I was connected via HDMI. After reading online, I tried booting the computer with one stick of RAM instead of two, and that solved the issue. I then proceeded to the BIOS and enabled the XMP Profile 1, turned off the machine, installed the other RAM stick, and then successfully rebooted. Ram is running at advertised speed.
Issue 2 - Windows 10 Installation: I didn't have a Windows machine prior to this build, so I was not sure how to create a boot drive with a USB drive because I only had an Apple laptop. Simply put, Windows 10 now comes on a USB 3.0 drive, I picked it up a Fry's (price in part list). Installation went smooth as butter.
Other than that, smooth build, good performance so far. The fan kicks up a bit when gaming, but nothing concerning. My cable management is pretty bad, but I plan to improve it in the future.
Originally put the wrong video card I purchased, has since been updated.
