It's finally done! I've built my 1st PC! I will be using this PC for gaming at 1080p, and will hopefully be better than my Xbox One. The only game I've tried is Blacklight: Retribution, which I don't think is a very demanding game. I can play it at 1080p ultra at 60 FPS (please give some graphically-demanding F2P game suggestions).
The build went well up until the wiring. I had trouble knowing where to plug **** in, so some people from PCPP went on a Google Hangout and helped me (thanks a lot)! After that I installed Windows, and installed my drivers.
But then Windows 10 didn't know how to use my HDD! But I got help from you guys, and it's actually pretty easy to tell something to download on my SSD or HDD. And on Steam, it gave me an option to make a games folder thing on my HDD! I'm really liking Windows 10! It's very easy-to-use.
Unfortunately, it's not perfect. Cable management is nowhere to be found, and some USB ports aren't in line with the IO shield. But so far, i'm happy.
The i5 6500 is the best bang-for-your-buck CPU out there! It has 4 cores, and it' clocked at 3.2GHz! This CPU won't bottleneck any GPU out there today!
A fantastic budget Skylake mobo. It comes everything you need, but nothing fancy like SLI.
8GB of ram. Pretty good.
One of the best budget SSD's today! It's not as good as the 850 Evo's, but it's much faster than a HDD!
A great HDD from Toshiba! Nothing wrong here!
The R9 380 is probably the best overall 1080p GPU's ever! It can play all games at 1080p medium-high settings in 60 FPS! Some older games can go up to ultra!
Very easy to use! A great budget case for beginners!
A great 500W PSU from SeaSonic! It can support mid-range GPU's like the R9 380 and GTX 960, and has an 80+ bronze rating!
Windows 10 is easy to use, and works great! And with the full retail version, you can transfer your key to a new mobo!
A good 1080p monitor from Acer! Decent response time, and has a big screen!
