Description

So I built this PC intended for normal everyday usage and for gaming (medium intensity). I play League of Legends, Fornite, Destiny 2, GTA V, Rainbow Six Seige, CSGO, and many other games but those are the ones I play the most. I rarely stream or record videos and I'm currently in my last year of high school. When I built this PC I did run into some problems. Such as mounting my HDD to the case PROPERLY and CABLE MANAGEMENT. But in the end, I just shoved my HDD in a certain way so that it won't move or make any noise when my PC runs. To be honest I gave up on my cable management and I just shoved all the wires in the back of my case without using zip ties and just slapped on the back panel of my case on. There's also this weird problem where when I open one of my games lets say Rainbow Six Seige or GTA V, my monitor screen tends to flicker on and off and at certain points of the game. The only way I found to temporarily fix this was to unplug my HMDI cable and plug it back into the monitor and my screen wouldn't flicker black again. However, that can get annoying having to take out the HDMI and plugging it back in every time I open my PC. I tried updating my drivers to the latest update (motherboard, GPU, and monitor) but I still have this problem. Well anyways let me know in the comments if this build seems good to you and leave any suggestions or ideas about anything about my build.

Thanks for reading!

did you try using a display port instead of HDMI? also having a modular power supply will make it easier to do cable management .

It's a nice first build overall.

well, my monitor didn't come with a display port so I just decided to use HDMI. Plus is there a difference between the two? is one like better performance over the other? And also i didn't have the money to find a modular power supply that was within my budget. And thxs

Not that much difference between HDMI 2.0 and display port , other than display port having a higher bandwidth and it also clips into your monitor so the cable wont fall out.

Try connecting your pc to a different monitor or a TV , if the problem is still there then there is something wrong with the graphic card , if the problem stopped then its something wrong with your monitor.
