This website is amazing, it made it sooo easy to chose my parts and its just overall super helpful. So this is my first build and I tried to go for somewhat of a clean look. My budget was about $1000 but I also bought a 29' LG ultrawide screen which btw is amazing, I love it! but thats just my opinion. I got on sale at best buy for $270. The money was there so wth. The CPU was easy. I couldn't afford an i7 so I got this. The CPU cooler I got for $90 so it was a pretty good deal. the white stock LED matches my build so I didn't have to mess with it and it is a 240mm cooler.. The RAM is just sexy! it does its job and kingston is a great company from what I've read. SSD why 120gb? I love how fast this thing boots up. I have a 2tb external drive but I will be getting a bigger SSD and hardrive for mass storage in the near future. GPU: I haven't been able to test this bad boy yet but I cant wait. I got the SSC model on sale for $330 + free backplate + witcher 3 & a $15 mail-in rebate. The sale came on just in time before I bought the FTW+ which came with a backplate pre-installed for $390! it really was a no brainer for me since i was only getting FTW+ for the backplate. S340, I fell in love with you since the first time I saw you! this case made it a breeze to put my first build together and that I thank you NZXT. PSU was like $35 so i went for it. Nest PSU will definitely be fully modular. Extra fans because they just look nice.
My other set of RAM sticks got here todayy they're infront of me but I'll upload better pictures when I get my hands on my dads camera.
*Update- I put in my two new RAM sticks and now it finally looks complete. I KNOW MY DESK IS TINY. I will be getting a new one later on. for now, I'm just happy i have a desk.
Hoping to fix those cables on my GPU, they look terrible but I can't see them in my desk atm.
