Description

I was going to wait a year or 2 for the ps4, but ever since my brother started gaming on his laptop, I figured it should be time to make the jump to PC. I've been a loyal lapdog to Playstation for years but the lack of exclusives and other things made my decision easy.

With 2 weeks worth of research, including stumbling on here to check the compatibility of all the parts, I made my order. Keep in mind, I'm very green when it comes to building or really PC's in general. After 5 hours or so of attaching and detaching, it was done.

With the 52'' TV as the monitor, I tried project nimbus on it, 1080p, it ran great. Smooth and quiet. Nothing is OC'd yet as I haven't spent significant amount of time researching, but the potential is really exciting.

Please let me know how the rig rates. Any tips or criticisms are welcome

*edit: fixed the mess of cables. I knew it was bad before, but until I saw other peoples PC's, I had to do something.

Try and run some of your cables behind the motherboard, not only does it look much nicer the pc will have better air flow!

I never noticed the holes near the power supply. I thought they only ran up vertically. Its all fixed. Thanks for pointing out.

That Motheboard is way to overpowered and also you just get a aftermarket cooler and overclock your beast. +1

I'm sorry, but your GPU choice makes no sense, but hey, its your build. But anyways +1 for the build man

To be honest, I never really looked at AMD, and I probably wouldn't have got it anyways. the i5 4690k probably would have been just fine. When I was looking at GPU's, I only saw the price for the 980's and saw almost $700, I figured the 970 would be around the same... I know, I'm stupid. If I had known that the 970's were around 400 I would have just gotten it. Though the 760 so far is doing the trick really well (I don't plan to go 4k). The way I see it, all the mistakes I went through will help my brother in the end when he decides to build his PC, and he's the one who really needs to save money. Thanks for the input though, appreciate it!
