This is my 1st ever PC build. The prices I attached are what I paid including rebates. I tried to include absolutely EVERYTHING I had to purchase for my build.
Keeps my i5-4690k stock Idling around 28-30c and 48-50c while gaming. Lost one star because the RED colored LED is dim whenever I start up my computer. I have to go to settings and fix it every time.
EDIT: The light has been staying light now-a-days...
Boots up fast, the only thing I regret is not going all SSD and no HDD. Anyway, perfect for a boot drive and main programs.
Got this card for $240. All other r9 290s were over $300. Looks Great, Runs Great so far. I get 60+ FPS every game that I played (h1z1, ESO, Skyrim, CS:GO)... Temps Run around 65-80 Degrees. Depending on the length of the gaming session. Solid GPU. Def good for the price. Now I want a Titan :)
Beautiful looking case. Pretty easy to work with besides the built in Thumb screws were a pain for some reason. Had a little trouble getting the hard drive trays out because of those screws. Sometimes I will pop the front off to increase Air flow but I was willing to do that to have a pretty Silent case.
Got on sale for $100. Cant beat that.
