I decided to enter the the world of PC gaming by starting my first build (having always been a console gamer) after lots of research and plenty of advice from the forums i ended up with this configuration that would allow me to game in 1440p.
Was very nervous about building my first rig as i had read online about all the things that could go wrong, mainly ESD, hence i took it very slow and triple checked everything along the way, ended up taking me like 6-7 hours. However it booted up first time without any problems and i managed to get windows 10 education for free which saved me £100, just waiting on the mouse pad and speaker system to arrive in the post but so far I'm very pleased with the outcome.
I would highly recommend the S340 Elite case as it has great (and extremely easy)cable management and also the tempered glass windows looks amazing though id recommend installing 2 extra fans at the front as i have done for better cooling. I've had no problems with any of the hardware so far and stress tested both the cpu and gpu using prime 95 and unigine with no problems where both went up to around 70c which may be a little high for the cpu so i will probably have to adjust the fan settings slightly to bring that down.
Overall i'd say its a pretty solid gaming pc for a fairly tight budget with plenty of room for upgrades over the next few years.
