This is my very first build, and I use it mostly for gaming. So far, it performs incredibly well, playing Witcher 3 at virtually max settings while maintaining buttery-smooth framerates.
This is a great CPU that does the job. Obviously, nothing top of the line, but surprisingly can still most games today on high settings.
It's big, it's ugly, it's a bit loud, but it does the job, and it's very cheap. Great for a first time build. Not going to use it in my next build, though.
In my experiences, anything Asus is toxic, especially their motherboards, which are prone to a lot of USB issues. Also, some issues with RAM placement in the slots. Asus in general is extremely terrible at updating their products (BIOS, drivers, etc). Definitely the last time I will ever touch anything Asus-branded.
It's RAM. It works.
Great SSD, crappy software (especially with version 5+). Still worth buying. Just make sure to downgrade to 4.9.5.
Great GPU with cool lighting effects, though it has a tendency to run a little bit warmer than expected. All in all, though, definitely worth it.
This case doesn't do organization as well as other cases in its price range, but it still is a pretty decent case. I like the see-through panel on the left, and the compatibility for a LOT of fans (albeit kinda overkill, I think). Lots of room for storage, very little room for wires on the right side.
It's a PSU. It works great, no issues at all.
To be honest, I have never actually used it. It just sits in my case (I have it just in case of a blue moon). But it's an optical drive - I don't think there are bad optical drives out there.
Good monitor, has good colour and contrast. Power button sometimes don't respond right away. Minor issue aside, it's a decent monitor, though I'd recommend getting it on sale. Not really worth full price.
One of the worst pieces of hardware I have ever used. The mouse is tiny and feels awkward. Also has terrible tracking. The keyboard is great for the first week and then starts exhibiting lag issues and whatnot. A year later, the issues have gotten much worse. Definitely never buying Logitech wireless products ever again.
