First build at 14. Went pretty well up until I realized all games crashed on me(including sometimes Roblox). Took me about half a year to figure out that 850watt psu was too small. Replaced with 1200 watt metioned in part list and I know have my very own working PC!
Would like a different case capable of better cable management as well as possibly a 1440p monitor.
Solid Cpu. It's last gen tech now, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend buying it instead of a 3600X unless you really want the extra cores, but it works for me.
Good Motherboard, and if not for customer service I would give it five stars. Msi on their website said that I should remove all accessories before sending it in, and apparently this included the cpu fan mounting brackets and m.2 shield. I am a first time builder and at that time I didn't even know it was possible to take off the m.2 bracket! Really Msi? Maybe put a link somewhere for first timers explaining what you mean by accessories?
Great ram. Looks good, compatible with my mobo, and it comes in a variety of customizations. Only regret I have is that I got a single stick of 16 gigs forgoing the ability to run dual channel because I thought that I might want to upgrade to 64 gigs someday. Really former self? I get that you were a noob, but what were you thinking?
Sure it's not PCIE 4.0 but it's fast enough. I mean, who's gonna argue with read and write speeds of 3 gigs a second? Boots windows in about 15-20 seconds, and I think most of that time might be the POST which the drive can't help with any way.
Solid HDD for the price. Not the fastest mind you, but it sure has a lot of storage capacity. Would be nice for Seagate to make a nicer looking drive monitor like Samsung has though.
So I have had my ups and downs with this card. I love it's performance(especially since I got it for like 350), but it draws a ridiculous amount of power. ASUS says that the card alone requires 700 watts! Yikes! This is from the pre 7nm Radeon era, though, so I really can't complain all that much about the power this card eats since it's an AMD card that can compete nicely with NVIDIA 1080s. The thing that bumped my review from 3 to 4 stars, though, is Asus's stellar customer support.
Ok this case is meh. Just meh. Can't see through the side of it, not many options for cable management, no dedicated psu shroud, non modular hdd and ssd bays, basically it's a basic case. For the price it's not too bad, but I wish that I had decided to either forgo the 5.2 inch bays and get something like the Corsair Spec-04 or upgraded to an NZXT 700i or 500i. It's not really all that bad a case, but it just doesn't seem to fit my build, preventing me from showing off all my fancyshmanzy rgb components.
Not a bad psu, and really quite good for the price. I've only had it for about a week so I can't speak on it's ability to hold up long term, but it comes with a 5 year warranty and is made by a respectable brand. Only complaint is lack of a trip/cut off/power switch on the back to protect it from surges. I've plugged it into a power strip, though, so alls well.
It's Windows. Expensive Windows. Workable Windows. Computer Windows. Never able to get updates right Windows. Is there really anything else to say?
This is not a bad entry level monitor. It has a nice 144hz refresh rate, freesync, and a host of other nice features to set it up as a respectable choice for any aspiring gamer. Only problem is it's kinda pricey for a 1080p monitor.
Amazing keyboard! This thing is expensive sure, but downright amazing. Theres no picture on the website but here's a link to Corsair's.
A solid mouse. I like the sniper button, even though I hardly ever use it, and the quality sensor. The thumb buttons aren't the best on the market, but the build and feel of the mouse is good enough for me. The Razer Death Ader Elite is probably better for a fps than this, but this mouse has some features that the Razer mouse doesn't, like the ability to customize the weight of it.
Great headset! Has amazing battery life(I'd estimate this thing at around 3 hours or more), and a bunch of nice features. Only problem is sometimes my ears will get a tad bit uncomfortable in there.
