So this is my first ever PC build. I have been a console gamer for my entire life. I have got the bug to get a PC a few times but this time I finally decided to start saving up. If you look at the price lists you will notice some of these things were deals. I found those deals at https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/ and literally logged on everyday to monitor cheap deals. This PC will be used for gaming mostly, but it will also be my daily driver. I will also stream from this PC as well (casually though).
The build itself probably took about 2 hours, which I thought was probably decent for a first time builder. The most annoying part of the entire build was IO shield related. Getting the IO shield in the case and also then getting the motherboard IO into the IO shield. My cable management probably isn't perfect, but I am happy with how it came out.
