This is my first build I have ever created and I have spent months deciding if I should build a computer and I decided I should. The build was built due to the fact that my (somewhat) old Dell died on me. I was about to upgrade anyways so this was a great opportunity to do so. I reused the i7-4770 from the Dell and incorporated it to this build. I was thinking about using a red and black theme so the search began. The motherboard was a gift from my cousin after he heard about me wanting to build and he had the msi z97-g45 on hand and gave it to me as a gift so please understand why I have a z series mobo. The graphics card was chosen since it goes with my build and came with Arkham Knight (crappy port :(...). I was always a Nvidia fan so plz don't bash for not buying amd Radeon r9 280x or 290. The rest of the parts came smoothly and complimented the build. Currently the cpu cooler may be defective since it is providing me with 52 degrees idle Temps. Thanks for checking the build out!
