Well this is actually my first time building a PC I finished it last Thursday. I pulled an all nighter to finish building it and completed it in 6-7 hours. Sounds long but it was my first time building a PC ever so I don't think it was too bad. I still need to do better cable management and add in some red LED strips later. But I think it looks pretty good. Runs Rise of the Tomb Raider and Street Fighter V really smooth no problems. Hopefully this system will last me for a long while!
Its about a $1900 USD build but I actually ordered some other parts I didn't use like a Blu Ray Drive, another case (Corsair 760T), other motherboards, and other misc. stuff. I'm in the process of reselling those items but since I bought em all new I will have lost some money and I guess you can add around $200 to that total I guess to the build cost.
Next time I build a PC I'll try to build a $1000-$1500 price range . This time I used all new parts with no rebates/deals. If I really wanted to penny pinch I could have saved a bunch by buying used parts but I didn't want to have problems with parts not working my first PC build!
