Description

I've been dreaming of building my own PC for a very long time and finally I was able to get it. Everything on this part list was bought brand new except for one hard drive.

I'm using this computer for programs such as Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and After Effects. I am also using this for gaming.

I do plan on cable managing everything as soon as I move out of my current living place.

I've been using this for around 10 days now, and I haven't ran into any issues and everything is working great.

The build cost me roughly $1,800 including all the taxes which killed me.

Hi, nice build but maybe some cable management is needed and if you can is better if you put the psu upsidedown

Thanks! And yeah I plan on doing that once I get settled. I'm in my senior year of high school and moving out soon, so this setup is temporary for now. But I will definitely do that.

Nice build but $300 for gtx970 ?! For not much more than that <$100 (and a bit of patience) you could get gtx1070 and have 2x performance. Not saying 970 is bad, i had that tabbed prior to 1070, but $300 today is bad value.

But GRATS on first built PC, well done sir!

FYI you should consider better cooler if going to OC.

Nice PSU.

Also interested to know what you think of the monitor.

As of right now, I'm fine with what I got to be honest. Works great for what I do, should have probably gone with a gtx1070 but I was in need of a computer.

As for the monitor, It seriously great. I love it. I plan on getting another one whenever i could.
