Description

(I know it doesn't look like a batman computer but I love batman and it's what i call it ok?)

So, this is also my first build, and honestly it's a big improvement from what i had before (my old laptop ran minecraft at 1 fps)

Just want to explain the choice of AMD for all the Intel-fanboys; AMD is cheaper, and i also heard that it was better for gaming (?).

So here goes for the real explanations:

-I heard that AMD got hot (like marshmallow-roasting hot), so I decided to get an extra CPU cooler, don't regret anything -The only real reason that I chose the M5A99FX as a MoBo is the colors. I swear. I wanted my first build to wow people, so i compromised a few features (like the integrated bluetooth and Wi-fi) to have it blue -The ripjaws are awesome, all in aluminium and looks very nice from my window on my case -The SSD was primarily for the Windows, to have it boot up faster (and it does: it boots faster than the animation can finish) and i accidentally put a few games on it but oh well -The hard drives work as well as i could have hoped, though i haven't had the chance to push their limits. They're also for school/games, haven't tried raid-ing them yet, but i might soon -The graphics card is amazing, though i might change it soon for a VR-compatible one, plus I can't have all my games on ultra setting (Only Skyrim up to now) -The case was a breeze to assemble, and it seriously looks awesome too. PcPartPicker told me that the video card wouldn't fit inside it, but they were wrong, it fits pretty well, and anyway, the case is highly customizable -The Power supply is just enough, works just right without bringing up my electric bill -I already had Windows 7 on my old laptop, so i just transferred it from my old one (if you have any questions about that feel free to ask) -The monitor is awesome, especially hanging from my wall (note to anyone hoping to have it hanging on the wall as i did, the inputs protrude from the back so take a very thick wall-mount) -I definitely do not regret my headphones or my Xbox one controller, it actually has been a hassle deciding whether to use it on my XB1 or on my PC

Now for the parts I regret: -The Wi-Fi adapter doesn't have 5G compatibility, and it keeps discoinnecting for some reson, still have to look into that -I personally think the keyboard could have been better, I took it because it came as a bundle but do not make my mistake (take another bundle or take the seperately) -The USB stick doesn't work (If anyone knows how to fix this please comment!)

Finally, This build was more affordability-oriented, as it was my first one and I don't have a full-time job (or any job for that matter), so I just wanted to have all the basic building blocks to then upgrade individual parts

Get a powerline Ethernet adapter instead of a wi-fi card, you won't regret it!

There's already an input for the Ethernet in the Mobo and it works great, but thatnks for the advice!

I think you misunderstood what I was saying. Instead of using a WiFi card, a powerline adapter will be 2 plugs, one connected to your router and one connected to your PC, providing you with a wired connection through your powerline / plugs. I suggested this because you said you had problems with WiFi. See the link for an example... http://www.edimax.co.uk/edimax/merchandise/merchandise_detail/data/edimax/uk/powerline_av500/hp-5102/

oh i see what you mean, and that's what I did not too long ago, except with a d-link powerlink adapter, and i did exactly that, but the connection was like this: powerlink->router->PC, and it works perfectly so thanks for the advice! :D

AMD rules! I am currently building a mini-itx computer with an A10-6800K APU and a Radeon HD 6670 GPU, and 16gb of G.SKILL Sniper RAM.

AMD makes good stuff, it's all about cooling it. I applaud you for getting 2 coolers, usually people love to challenge and AMD CPU then complain when it burns down their house LOL.
