First Picture Taken 07/2015

I had been saving up money and then Christmas gave me the tip I needed to afford it. I can play all the new titles at normal-high ish settings at around 60 fp that is, on a generic '15 monitor.

CPU: Best bang for buck, won't bottleneck near future GPU upgrades.

MOBO: Cheapest ATX at the time as I wanted a full size board, front panel connections were hard to route in the cramped space as they are on the bottom of the board.

RAM:Got it on a good deal as it is fast and has CAS 8. It also has the customizable LEDs

STORAGE: SSD is noticeably fast and with 3tb of storage (free from uncle!) I have all the space I need.

GPU: Best for money as it can play anything at mid settings, the XFX fan is silent on idle.

CASE:Love the aesthetics, easy installation with decent cable management. However it is a bit cramped for ATX boards.

OS:Got a cheaper copy from an old DELL, but it still works fine... (last picture)

PSU: This could have or might still be my mistake as it is from a tier 4 brand. however it is WAY overkill (750W) and so it is not under any load, semi-modualr, silver certified and silent.

Next upgrade: monitor. Nice build, another 4gb of RAM and a somewhat better video card will make this build last a lot longer though.

Too expensive case, but balanced! +1
