Description

To start off this is the first time I have ever build my own PC, I was on a pretty low budget so keep that in mind when you are looking at the parts I ended up with.

Let me know what you think, and what you would change/upgrade.

Thanks for looking.

probably couldve saved money on the mobo because its for oc, unless the features on it was worth the extra $

I went with the mobo because I do plan on getting the 6600k when I have the extra cash.

I just built my first PC, too, so I don't know that much about this stuff yet. However, I will say that your PC looks very cool and I'll bet it does everything you want it to do. Have you played any games on it yet? How are they running?

Yeah this is a big upgrade from a PS4 which is what I was doing my games on. It is running amazing couldn't be happier. I have ran games like CS GO, battlefield, Tera, Need for Speed, and soon will be playing Doom when that comes out.

Good job! Mine is a first timer too. So good on you, you have room for upgrades, every one starts out small at one stage.

Thanks, there is a lot of room in the case, I didn't think it was going to be that big but like you said lots of room for upgrades.

I have a Corsair case, I wanted it big because of all the fans I put in there. The GPU is large and I can easily fit another one in down the track. There is nothing worse than trying to work in a tight space. I am a little paranoid about cooking my components, I like to keep things chilly. Anyway, have fun with your build, and be a little proud of yourself!

Yeah I would rather to much room so at least the components can breathe.

I hope to be doing a build soon with that same case. How is it? I've heard they can get damaged easily.

It was really easy to build in it but the clear window can get messed up if you are not careful.

simply add an SSD in the near future and migrate you're OS and love the choice in processor many people don't think the i3 will get the job done well I put an i3-4370 in my nephews build paired with the EVGA ACX 2.0 4Gb 960 and it performs great even with those 2 little cores. and it offers very easy upgrade ability

Yeah this I3 is performing really well.

The motherboard has crossfire support but not sli, so technically it's made for amd radeon cards, of course I wouldn't consider crossfire to be worth it unless you're doing 2 r9 390s to do some 4k.

Yeah I didn't notice that till now but I don't plan on doing sli and if I did I would get a better mobo and better GPU's.
