Description

This is my first build, so it is a dip in the puddle with my experiences on building computers. I plan on upgrading parts in the future and make it better. I built this to do work for my major, computer engineering, and to browse and play games. At the moment I am doing more work than games so I plan to upgrade my CPU. I actually had to return the one I ordered because of a dead memory channel so I am getting the newer CPU. Any tips or feedback is always helpful. Thanks for checking out my build. :)

Interesting that you got a DOA CPU, that's fairly unusual.

I see a few parts that I would have chosen differently, but all in all should be a good machine.

Yeah i was told that and its crazy that it's my very first one. What would you have done differently? Just curious :) I have plans for future upgrades but I am still not set in stone.

Most importantly the 560 GPU isn't all that strong, although the price you list is hard to beat. For gaming you'll likely be happier with at least an RX 570. Other tweaks: faster RAM, better PSU. 3000 MT/s or 3200 MT/s RAM would give a small boost and price should be only slightly more than the 2666 stuff. The PSU is OK, but it's an old design that wasn't that great when it was new, you can generally find better PSU's for not too much more. Keep it for now but consider changing it out sometime around the end of its warranty period.

Sweet thank you that helped a lot.

You can get something way better for that price. Btw, how is an Rx 560 supposed to drive two 144hz monitors at 1080p. Overall I don't like it.

I have the monitors at 60hz atm but when I upgrade I will bump that up to the 144hz. I'm still learning I know it's not the best. Thanks for the feedback :)
