Hey, this is my first build. I built it about 4 months ago, I was just to
lazy busy, to post up here. Some Bio- I'm 14 years old and have been into console gaming since forever. Just a couple years ago I began to watch youtube videos of games on my moms work pc. I got a crappy (yet at the time, for me this thing was a beast)Lenovo laptop for Christmas which started my pc addiction. I tried to game on this thing but it was close to impossible to get anything above 20frames on low settings. I since sold that and worked up the money to buy this thing.
I wanted a reasonably priced pc that I could game things like War Thunder, and Arma 3 on at highish settings on a 1080p monitor. With the help of local computer shop that I was friends with the owner, I picked these components. I wish I would have waited a while, so I could attain the knowledge that I have now of PC's. I would have gotten a different case and probably would have gotten a different mother board and a GTX 960 instead.
CPU I at the time just went through random build guides until I found one that was in price range and had the word gaming in it. The X4 860k was a more common one that I saw and went for it. I also wish I would have spent an extra $30 on an aftermarket cooler. This thing will get into the 90's under load
MOTHERBOARD I essentially did a super noob, I had no idea why or how the sockets matched up so I just turned on the compatibility filter and found something relatively cheap with good reviews. I wish I would have waited and gotten something that would have suited my needs better.
RAM RAM is RAM... it works
STORAGE At the time I though 1TB was a lot. I figured this would be enough. I plan on getting a SSD sometime in the future.
GPU I did the same thing as my CPU pretty much
CASE I went to newegg and found the cheapest, coolest looking, highest rated case... I regret this decision
NAME MEANING This thing, compared to what I had, is lightning. But compared to some/most higherish end builds this is pretty slow
I will be adding more, and better pictures when I can (I had these just lying on my phone, I was bored at school when I posted this will add more when I get home)
