This was my first build. My budget was around $1700. I wanted a PC that could easily run and handle any game on the market or in the near future market on the highest graphic settings without missing a beat. I also wanted to build a computer that looked cool and that I could show off and be proud of. I chose to use the Thermaltake Core V71 case. This case came out 3/3/2014. I built my PC 3/5/2014. So not many people have this case. I went with a blue-red theme. I think it turned out really well. So far I have mostly played Diablo 3 and LOL. This PC handles D3 on the highest settings no problem at all. I plan on running Rome Total War 2, Titanfall, and WoW on it as well. I ended up getting some parts from other websites then the ones mentioned. The total build including the case, monitor, a mouse, and keyboard put me at about $1600. Everything has worked great so far! The air flow through this case is amazing. My GPU and CPU temps have not gone above 40. I do want to get a faster WIFI card in the future but for now the one I got is doing ok. Other than that I don't think I'd change a thing. I am proud of this build! I think it turned out really good, Looks cool and works great!
