Description

I had a BLAST building this rig with my dad. My goal was to build a computer that was white black and silver, was semi-quiet, and could handle all my games 1440p at more than 45fps. Didn't really have any problems except the Azio L70 we originally bought died as soon as we got to the boot screen, so we had to go buy a new keyboard. But other than that, things went better than expected. :) Oh, and any name suggestions??? (Peppa Pig and TIE Fighter for scale)

Part Reviews

CPU

What can I say, it's an Intel quad core processor that is overclockable

CPU Cooler

Little bit of a pain to install, but it's cheap, runs quiet, and looks nice

Motherboard

Really love the way this motherboard looks. Fits my build nicely and the bios was easy to navigate through.

Memory

Didn't want anything flashy, just something to get the job done, so this fit perfect with my build....cheap too!

Storage

Was on sale. It was either this or Seagate and this was cheapest at the time. No problems so far!

Video Card

Got this monster for $275 with a rebate. Haven't had any problems yet, its quiet, and looks stylish. Though on the back of the box where it talks about what's in the box, it says "wantarry" instead of "warranty". Just would like to point that out...

Case

Really dig the look of this case. It's simple, has great cable management, and dust filters (especially important when you have cats)

Power Supply

Great power supply! Black cables, Japanese capacitors, and is semi-modular

Operating System

Love the feel of the new layout. No problems yet!

Monitor

$260 for a 25in, 1440p, IPS monitor!!! Of course it's amazing!

Really amazing for it's price....though more recently the left clicker is starting to squeak, but it doesn't bother me enough to get a new one

For some reason, I love seeing people's pets in their build pics. Nice parts choice too! Love XFX cards. How are your temps with that bad boy?

Haven't gotten a chance to...I don't have many games yet and my most graphics intensive one is borderlands 2, but I'll try to get those temps :)

Even your cat matches the color scheme, black, silver(gray), and white. Nice build and super clean +10.

Try and get an SSD they're so cheap now, I had 2 SSD's in my rig and makes a world of a difference, I had your blue hard drive before, sooo sloww. Not for gaming, just good for the electric bill.

Theres not one thing that stands out really...just anything that sounds cool like "black lightning", but not that cliche

Really good...it comes with 2 exhaust fans (back and top) but I added 2x140mm in the front for positive air pressure
