Hey guys this is my first pc build ever and learning how to do it from reading online couldn't of been easier because of pcpartpicker. I am mainly using this pc for gaming and programming. I'll be playing a ton of league of legends, GTA V, Battlefield and others I come across.
CPU: I picked this cpu basically for the over clocking. I am going to over clock it later when I get everything download on to it. Also this cpu was the best for me for the gaming part.
CPU cooler: Chose the cooler master because it was cheep and keeps my cpu cool enough for the low over clocking I will be doing.
Motherboard: After about a year and half I had to switch out my gigabyte z97 for the Asrock one because it randomly just stop working (randomly resetting when it was on for 5 seconds) thought it was the cmos battery, wasn't, tried jumping it, didn't work. So then I thought it was the psu and swapped that and tried that and didn't work but then I bought the new board and worked out great, easy install and looks great.
SSD and sshd: picked them for the price. Ssd is really fast on loading windows happy I bought it.
RAM: just thought they looked cool and 8gb is enough for gaming.
Graphics Card: I knew I wanted a 290x card but I just wanted one that fit my budget and this guy got it perfectly. I am having a hard time getting the right drivers downloaded onto it but I'll figure it out. Later on when I get more money I'm probably going to switch over to the 970 because of how hot this card runs.
Case: Well I just need a cheap case that had good reviews and easy cable management and it worked great for the cables. No spot for the ssd but I just stuck it in the back. Update: bought a 2.5 to 3.5 drive insert to make it more presentable.
PSU: Read really good reviews on EVGA and the 750w is plenty of enough power to add things for the future upgrades.
Monitor: I kind of just picked one that was on sale and regret getting it now. When I am playing league of legends online the screen goes black for about 2 seconds and goes back on. If anyone knows what's wrong and is willing to help that would be great, I'm thinking it's the graphics card but I'm not sure. Update: took a while to figure out the settings with gpu and picture is okay, maybe looking to upgrade to higher quality.
Thanks guys for reading and hope you liked it!
