Description

Ever since the summer of 2015, I've been wanting a new PC, witnessing the FPS I could've been experiencing. And finally, for the christmas of 2016, I got my new PC. (Everything but the power supply :/) This build is intended for gaming, evident to the locked processor. I got a 600W for this build for future upgradibility, since my dream build will have a 1070 and an unlocked processor. Full list here: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/4h3JNN

I'm 13 years of age as of writing this. I'll be turning 14 on February the 25th, 2017, and I plan on upgrading my setup with whatever I get then. I built this with my own 2 hands so it should be pretty easy for anyone to do this.

Part Reviews

CPU

I heard this is the best bang for your buck processor available processor, and from what I can tell, that is true. Doesn't bottleneck my GPU, supports my 16gb of RAM, Quad-Core, at 3.2GHz, pretty good for 260$ CDN.

Motherboard

Not bad for a budget motherboard. Onboard USB 3.0 headers, supports 6th gen Intel processors, supports more than enough RAM for any modern gamer, and on a B150 chipset. Overall pretty good.

Memory

It's RAM, and it works. What else is there to say?

Storage

Actually pretty fast for a mechanical hard drive. I get to desktop in about 10 seconds.

Video Card

The star of my build. In H1Z1 at all high, I get an average of 90+ FPS. Absolute charm but does get quite loud under load. That being said, I don't think I've ever seen it break 80 degrees celcius. Absolutely amazing card if you want pretty pictures at the cost of a quiet PC.

Case

It's not the greatest of cases, but for how much it costs, I can't complain. Not to mention it looks sexy ;)

Power Supply

For how much it costs, I can't complain. Delivers nice and quiet power to my system.

Operating System

Pretty easy to install. Can only plug in through USB 3.0 as well.

Wireless Network Adapter

Been able to get quite a bit more out of my internet with this. Comes with it's own cradle so you don't have to have the stick sticking out the back or front of you PC the whole time. Be aware that it can only plug into USB 3.0.

Monitor

Great monitor, if you're not looking for 120Hz or 144Hz, but want to get something quality, this is a pretty good option. Colours look amazing. Only bumped it down to 4 because mine came with a stuck pixel.

Hey, I saw your build. It was nice but I saw a few bad things. First the video card GTX 1060 was never really good. And the power suppliy is not nearly enough, if you wanted to get another thing you wouldn’t have enough watts. And you might want to get the intel i5 7600k at the least. Here’s a link that is a PC that is really good. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vpnTGf

It won't be enough watts? I thought it would be more than enough, I got a new 1060 since these pictures, and I don't need an unlocked processor for now. But thanks for the criticism.

It is enough and so is the 1060. This guy doesn't understand how having a budget under $2000 works

Thank you very much. I do not plan to overclock my RAM, I just wanted DDR4 since it is the mainstream DDR these days.
