The Dell monitor The Keyboard and Mouse The Amplifier The Bose Sound speaker 160 GB HDD from my computer 8 years ago LOOL I had these parts lying around the house and decided to use them.
I had been planning to build a pc from long time ago however, money didn't meet what parts I wanted, etc. So as an excuse for my laptop breaking I finally made my own first Build! It may not seem like an overkill however, it is an overkill for me. I do not game a lot, mostly schoolwork, etc. So the gtx 970 seems like an overkill to me in my opinion.
My case does not have a dvd drive however, I did buy one and that's because I didnt want to go the extra mile to download software and drivers and etc. Hence the DVD drive for $10. I just connect the DVD drive any time I would like to use and take it back out again. Note, I havent used it after building my pc and installing my drivers.
For gameplay, I get 60-90 FPS on ultra/ high setttings on watchdogs, metro last light, bioshock, rainbow six, etc.
Amazing piece of Hardware. Never need to overclock in my opinion. Even though I have a H60 Cooler.
keeps everything and running smooth. Bought it on boxing day. Worth every penny!
Great Bios, never had any problems, easy installation!
fast, easy to use, stores my OS! got it for cheap on black friday!
Amazing, Terrific, Graphics Card. Could not want anything more tbh! Keeps cool when running any games and runs it smoothly on ultra/high 1080p!
A1 Case. Originally wanted the NZXT H440 but eh. Great cable management and fits snuggly on my desk.
Great PSU, gold certified, Fully Modular, and it was on sale, so I figured why not!
