Update

2017 - I recently updated the graphics card on this PC to a Asus GTX 1080 Ti and a 500GB Samsing Evo SSD. I also use two 29" LG Ultrawide displays stacked. New Pics added

Update

This PC is used for gaming and music production. I had a Sager Gaming laptop (NP9370) and wanted to build a desktop to complement both those needs. So I sold my Sager and my MPC 1000 to create the funds for this build. Cable management is still a WIP, but I'll stop being lazy one of these day and really fix it up.

Primary retailers were Microcenter and Amazon and EVGA.

Prices

Mobo + CPU

If you shop at Microcenter they have a deal where you can get the CPU+Mobo combo and get 30-40$ off the Mobo its a pretty good deal. Plus the CPU was only 249!!! I picked up the 4770K and the Asus Z87-Pro for about 450$ (including taxes).

PSU

Got it for a good price of 79.99 on Amazon (also seen it on BestBuy for the same $), read reviews about noise but haven't had issues with mine. I recommend it.

RAM

Got this from Amazon it was on sale. Good price no complaints

HDD

I was just looking for a standard HDD. I personally have a WD fail on me before so I was avoiding them. Never had an issues with Toshiba so I went with this one. Purchased this at Microcenter. I have a ssd as well from a previous build but it isn't installed as of right now.

CD Drive

Again looking for something simple and cheap tbh. Purchased this at Microcenter no issues as of yet.

GPU

EVGA now has its step program which allows you to step up to the new cards that are coming out if you purchased a previous EVGA card within 90 days. I purchased a GTX 980 FTW then stpped up to the 980 Ti. (AUG 2015) 649.99 at Retail.

Monitor

Saw this at Microcenter and while in the store pulled up the online review from my phone. Got good reviews so I grabbed it. Spur of the moment type deal.

Thanks for looking.

You got a 4770k cheaper than I can get a 4670k.... I cri everytime. But jokes aside good build only thing I would say to improve on is to move away from carpet. Also no ssd? this maybe a myth but Toshiba may not have been the best company to get a hdd from. Could have gone with a WD Blue. Anyway good build :) +1

Where did you get the name from? I was thinking RWBY but I don't know. And I might use this build as guidelines for my first PC, as I am switching from console.
