Description

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.

Part Reviews

CPU

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!

Motherboard

A fantastic budget Skylake mobo. It comes everything you need, but nothing fancy like SLI.

Memory

8GB of ram. Pretty good.

Storage

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!

Storage

A great HDD from Toshiba! Nothing wrong here!

Video Card

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!

Case

Very easy to use! A great budget case for beginners!

Power Supply

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!

Operating System

Windows 10 is easy to use, and works great! And with the full retail version, you can transfer your key to a new mobo!

Monitor

A good 1080p monitor from Acer! Decent response time, and has a big screen!

That hangout was really fun. I hope the computer continues to work well.

I suggest you wait to redo cable management. ;)

JacobGunther12 1 point 17 months ago

YES!!! PLAY FEED THE BEAST! Also try the modpack Direwolf20 1.7.10, it's really fun.

Do you had any problem with mother board and power supply ? And also how many fan can I put using that mother board bcz I am gonna save build :P if you help me out.

SuperGojira2001 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

I haven't had any problems with the mobo and PSU. The case comes with 2 fans, but there's only 1 fan socket thing on the mobo.

beastmodegaming 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

have you tried blade and soul i wouldnt call it graphically demanding but its free to play and quite fun

bardacuda 1 point 17 months ago

I like your build and your reasoning. Personally I would want a larger SSD for the system drive since games can fill them up pretty quick, and I'm not sure I trust the toshiba HDDs and would probably pay the small premium for a caviar blue, but for a storage drive that only sees infrequent use my inhibitions are probably not justified. Awesome bang for buck parts on everything though and quality parts everywhere it really counts!

SuperGojira2001 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

I haven't head anything bad about Toshiba HDD's. I'll do better cable management when I get a new PSU.

Lilbeast2001 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Nice pc build,can I ask how is the hard drive working for you?

SuperGojira2001 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Both my SSD and HDD are working fine!

Lilbeast2001 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Thanks for the response!

SuperGojira2001 submitter 3 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Your welcome! Also since then I've fixed the cable management.

Lilbeast2001 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Very nice that is a impressive build and I like your other builds keep it up!

Hello, That is almost an Identical build I am planning on doing, except with mine I am thinking of having a M.2 SSD, Not including a video card and not including a monitor ( I already have one from the soon to be 10 year old computer I am going to replace with the computer I am going to build). The other difference is I have chosen a different hard drive, different PSU and included an optical drive.

I am still debating between using a micro ATX or ATX Motherboard. I am also trying to keep the cost to around $700 USD if I can. But each time I "tweak" my build I either make it more expensive or someone says it is "not fast enough". So I continue to "tweak" it.

Good build and glad it is working out for you!!

SuperGojira2001 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I am still debating between using a micro ATX or ATX Motherboard.

Installing a mATX motherboard in a mid-tower is a pain in the ***. You have to move/remove standoffs (which some cases really don't like), then it looks awkward. Get a full-sized ATX motherboard.

Good build and glad it is working out for you!!

Thanks!

Groffeaston 1 point 9 months ago

I was thinking of going with the ATX motherboard. I think I may have to go with a 2.5" SSD drive instead of a M.2 SSD. Why? Going with the M.2 SSD puts me closer to $800 and I am trying to stay as close to $700 as I can.

I know eventually I will have to replace my keyboard and I would also like to get a bigger monitor, but that is going to have to wait until I can clean out the junk in my room and I can also get another computer desk. LOL

I will let you know what parts I go with for my build. Should be about a week or two, I hope. LOL

SuperGojira2001 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Ok, what is your PC for?

Groffeaston 1 point 9 months ago

Web browsing, email, streaming audio (Spotify), occasionally watching youtube videos, and Facebook. I also like to listen to My Audio CD's and occasionally watch DVD's.

I do not plan on gaming, so no video card as of right now, I might decide to add one later in the future.
