So after deciding my pc wasn't good enough, and starting a pc course at college, I started looking at building my own. I was a little unsure at first and nervous about actually building it, but glad I did. It was a nice relief when it actually turned on when I went to boot up.
Need to get some games installed and get it actually working now.
The only problems I had were small or caused by my own stupidity.
The first was Amazon having a mix up and sending me an iron, instead of the cpu, ram and gpu. Quick call to customer service and it's all sorted, parts reordered and they said I can keep the iron (late xmas present mum).
The other was when I was updating the bios. I knew it might need one, pc part picker told me it might when I chose the mobo. Unfortunately, the m-flash section of the bios kept saying the file didn't exist. I had put it on a USB memory stick. Everything still worked so wasn't too much of an issue, but a little annoying. Fast forward a couple of hours and a look on the msi website, I realise I'm an idiot and am trying to use the update files for a mobo I don't have. After finding the right update file, sure enough that works fine.
Am definitely happy with it, cant wait to actually start gaming with it now.
