So I decided it was time to ditch my old Dell PC that I used for gaming and finally get a real gaming PC. It took a lot longer then I wanted it to to save up money but it was totally worth it in the end. So with that being said lets get in to it shall we... P.S....I was having so much fun building it that I forgot to take pics through out the build XD. So if you would like me to add more pics of it I would be more then glad to do so just let me know :)
i5-4690K I decided to get this CPU because a lot of people over on TomsHardWare were recommending I get it. It also had very good reviews.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Got it because it was cheap and also has very good reviews so I figured it was a good choice.
Asus Z97 I probably spent a good 2 months just looking at all the Mother boards out there because I didn't want to have a completely trashed PC after a couple of weeks. So I figured the Z97-A was a good choice as it had good reviews and I saw a lot of other builds on here with the same board.
Corsair Veng 16GB RAM It's from Corsair how could it not be good? P.S I actually bought 16GB of high profile RAM but then found out that it wouldn't have fit under the cooler. So I went to ship it back to Newegg to get my money back but then they tell me I have to pay a restocking fee on top of the shipping which came out to like $35 so I would have gotten like $32 back :/. So yea needless to say I have a spare set of 16GB(4x4) RAM in my closet lol.
840 EVO SSD I wanted to have a good name brand SSD for my OS and the EVO seemed pretty good.
WD Black HDD Bought this just to store all my steam games, pictures, programs, ect so I didn't load up the SSD with a bunch of junk.
GTX 750Ti Now this one I know people are gonna ask why I sorta cheaped out on. The reasons I did are because I figured I'm not a full blown PC gamer yet so I thought the 750Ti would be a perfect card for me as I'm just starting to get into PC gaming. And plus the GPU is like the easiest thing in the world to upgrade.
600T Case Absolutely love this case! I got it because I wanted a nice big case with awesome cable management and this case definitely does that!
EVGA SuperNova G2 750W I wanted a fully modular PSU because I'm kinda a neat freak when it comes to things like cable management. And the G2 had the best ratings out of all the PSU's I was looking at so it was kinda a no brainier.
Asus DVD Over 700 people bought it so I figured it had be good :)
Norton I have had Norton on all of my PC's and never had a problem with it so I had to get it.
Windows 7 Pro I thought about getting Windows 10 but I just absolutely love Windows 7 pro to much that I couldn't say no.
Upgrades for later Probably going to get either dual 970's and put them in SLI or I might just get a 980Ti.
Upgrades for later #2 Would really like to get a white LED strip for the bottom of the glass side panel to light it up a bit.
OverClocking Definitely going to OC my CPU one of these days just don't know when I will be able to trust myself to do it XD.
