This is a re-post, we took all the pieces parts and put them in a new case.

Please keep your comments clean as Grandma is watching!

Part Reviews

CPU

Very good workhorse. In gaming its only 3-4fps slower than a i74790k

Motherboard

First MSI board. Looks good at first glance. Will do crossfire. EDIT After a year have had no problems. Even bought another MSI MB.

Storage

Samsung is king for SSDs. Have bought 3 so far. Fast and dependable. 6 stars.

Power Supply

Excellent power supply. Don't skimp in this area. Make sure your always a couple hundred watts over what your system needs.

Awesome build!! Even cooler than your grandma plays games!

If you ever run into cash for upgrading, I would suggest getting something cheap like the Cryorig M9i or Hyper T4 for the CPU, yeah your 4440 doesn't get too hot but an aftermarket cooler would keep it still a pretty fair amount below what the stock cooler is doing.

Thanks I'll check them out.

A GTX 1060 is a nice potential future upgrade.

sPACerANGErtOm submitter 4 Builds 1 point 26 months ago

Mmmmm, 1060.

I used to play it before i got bored with it and switched to Roblox

My highest level character was a human hunter @ lvl 18 or 19

Nater650 1 point 22 months ago

Heck even my mom plays it

Nater650 1 point 22 months ago

My dad also occasionally plays it on his high end laptop while my mom helps him with quests

Nater650 1 point 22 months ago

While i played WOW my favorite thing to do if i couldnt find quests to do was raid dungeons and blow all the hostile creatures in there to smithereens and get overpowered loot

Good times while they lasted :)

Nater650 1 point 22 months ago

Unfortunately my grandmother wasnt a gamer like her grandson (me) was

Nater650 1 point 22 months ago

However like your grandmother she was the best person ever
