This is my very first build which I did at the beginning of this year. I tried to keep it simple with some subtle RGB.
CPU : R7 2700X because I also plan to do some photo/video editing and maybe stream. Haven't had time yet to test OC it
GPU : Runs every game I played so far on max settings @ 1080 144+ fps, was able to overclock it to +200 MHz core clock and +450 MHz mem clock in MSI Afterburner ( Temp Limit @ 86C)
RAM : Changed the speed to 2933MHz in the BIOS XMP, sadly the 3200MHz model was sold out in my area
Monitor : Monitor was included in the NVIDIA's "G-Sync Compatible" list right after I purchased it
Here are some random personal takeaways I had during the whole process (buying and building)
