This was my first build. I am new to this site and actually found PCPartPicker after I built this computer. I'm mostly playing around and exploring this awesome web site... and looking for some new ideas and a little feedback on this build.
This computer is used to replace my store bought HP Desktop from 2009 and it does exactly what I want it to. I like my build, but the GPU was purchased almost 2 years ago (I saved a little money there by not buying a new one at the moment, and I want to buy a new GTX 780 to replace it, maybe in a few months I will.) Other than that for my first time building from the ground up, I am satisfied with the performance and I love how snappy it feels compared to my HP computer. I have never gamed (heavily) on a PC before and have always been loyal to the XBOX, but now I think I might slowly make my way over to the PC world and hope to build off of this to a bigger, better, faster computer in the near future now that I have a little bit of a better feel for this kind of stuff.
The total amount paid for the new Hardware was 603.21 (773.20 with the O.S. included) since the GPU was not purchased at the sometime ($893.18 total investment) not including Monitor,mouse,keyboard,speakers, etc...
