After 6 years of using a quad core Xeon and a GTX970 I thought it was about time i upgraded. I dont really play video games much any more unless invited by friends so its mainly just a Plex server. While coming up with the build i decided that since my first ever build was done with a tight budget and wasnt ever really that great I decided that this one would be the opposite just a little over kill on most things. I ended up cheaping out a bit on the mobo which may or may not be upgraded at some point. During the build i had nothing but problems.... either the r9 3900x wasnt in stock and when there finally was one it lasted about a week before it died -_- then i was stuck waiting on it to restock again. when it was finally complete had mouse issues that would lock up the pc due to a dying logitech receiver but once all was said and done it finally works and has been issue free. in the long run i do plan on doing a complete custom loop but going to wait a year or so instead of voiding the warranty of a 2k graphics card.
