So in October I set out to build a pc. As someone who works in IT, it's something I always wanted to do but never got around to doing. I've always been a console gamer as well and ignored the master race pc argument. I came to the conclusion I was going to build a pc I could be proud of and game with while attempting to maintain a budget. Over the course of October-December I began buying parts when/where I could, utilizing different sales(Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.). Very quickly I learned how easy it was to zoom right over that budget! I would research on and on about different parts and pros/cons, where to spend more money and less money, Wants/needs, appearance. Finally the day after Christmas and me receiving my last couple of items (which relatives asked and got as gifts), I took my pc parts to work (IT nerds) so that me and one of my interested coworkers could put it all together. What a rush! It was extremely exciting and satisfying to put together/get fired up.
Looking forward to any and all positive or negative feedback/criticisms/improvements/questions.
As for the cost, I need to figure out how to edit what I actually paid. All in all my build cost me roughly $1,800 not the $2,400 shown.
Have been using for a couple of weeks now and it does amazing! Absolutely crushes anything and everything. Right now I have it comfortably OC'd to 4.5 GHz but I'm sure eventually I'll push it and see what it can do. So far so good though. Very pleased with my purchase.
Not much to say here. Its a great looking fan in my opinion and it works great so far.
Very pleased with my purchase of this mb so far. Has handled everything I've thrown at it with no problems.
Nice cheap ram. No complaints here!
My first ever SSD and it is amazing. I was originally going to do 1 SSD and then a couple TB 7200 HD for storage but after using this thing it convinced me to eat the cost and spend a little more for a 1TB SSD
I did a ton of research before deciding on a gpu and everything I read on this was overwhelmingly positive and rightfully so! I had a 4K monitor already so 4k was on my mind when purchasing and this absolutely crushes every game I throw at it. Destiny 2 looks remarkable. PUBG absolutely fantastic. Going to really test it with Rise of the Tomb Raider. Very pleased with my purchase.
Great looking case. Very pleased with the appearance.
