I bought the monitor and built this PC for my little brother. He plays the video games with it.
The parts are pretty standard. Got everything when prices were rock bottom in Q4 2014.
This is probably my favourite build I have done. It all starts with the Phanteks Enthoo Pro. The case is not the sexiest or the best build quality, but it is the most well designed case for enthusiast standard parts I have ever used. And at $50 less than any Corsair full tower it is a clear winner.
This build really has no weak points and has excellent value/cost. I would build it again with the exact same parts in a heartbeat.
PS- The keyboard and mouse are absolute garbage though.
One Year Review: Coming Soon
Excellent price/performance for its time. Get one when they go on sale or get a newer model.
I love this case. Phanteks really shows they know what they're doing. From including a hardware box with lots of extras, to the fan hub and velcro straps. This case has it all.
Looks great. Runs great.
BenQ is the way to go. Could be brighter, but would never consider buying anything else unless the price was EVEN with this one.
Garbage keys that feel like melting plastic and are very difficult to read. Weak features. Microsoft keys are cheaper and made of higher quality materials.
Not great. Died after 1 year. Was okay until then.
Excellent quality cans. Mic is not that great and is a little gainy, but the phones themselves are moving towards professional monitor quality. Good for the price ($65). HyperX Cloud is still the way to go though. Buy only if on sale.
Pretty standard stuff here.
