This is my first build ever, I wanted to build it for an entry level gaming PC. I also wanted to build it with my son and explain to him how all the pieces fit and work together.
I haven't done any official benchmarks, but it should be a capable machine. I had originally purchased the G4400, but returned it when the G4560 came out. The only thing I had to do was flash the bios on the Asus motherboard and it was good to go.
I got a deal on the Rosewill SRM-01 case, but it is a tight fit and the insides of this case look like a pile of spaghetti. I think later down the road (ie. a few months), I will be picking up a Phanteks Elite Tempered glass case and also a SSD drive for the OS. Right now, the OS is on a older Seagate Barracuda 320 GB HDD that I salvaged from one of my older computers.
Please let me know what I did well and what I could've improved on with this budget. For those of you who say I could've bought used or from another retailer, I had to buy new from Amazon because many PC component companies do not ship to Hawaii without tagging on a whole lot of shipping charges.
Anyway, enjoy my pictures, sorry it's not as flashy as some other builds here, but for now, it'll have to do...As long as I can play TitanFall 2 and Overwatch, I think this is a great first build...
