I was originally going to get an Xbox One S, but the TV I had wasn't HD, so I thought, "What's the point?", then I discovered PC gaming, and after months of carefully planning, I have finally built my first PC, and I am extremely happy with how it turned out.

I am 14 as of building this, and I had help from my uncle, who's been building for 16+ years.

(Sorry if the reviews are kinda "eh")

Part Reviews


I love this thing, it is so powerful, I managed to get this for $199.99 at Microcenter, I could not pass that deal up.

CPU Cooler

A Hyper 212 EVO with LEDs, not much else to say. Looks nice and gets the job done.


This motherboard is SO good, the BIOS look amazing, and it has RBG lighting, at first I was a little annoyed that I couldn't make the LEDs just red, but I actually like it.


Where do I even start?! This stuff is SO fast, and it looks nice. But for whatever reason I got the DDR4-3200, but I won't complain,


My uncle suggested I get a hybrid drive, and I'm glad I got one, it loads up stuff super fast, not as fast as an SSD, but its still fast.

Video Card

This thing is an absolute BEAST of a card, great for starters, it has LED lighting on the side, and performs amazingly in almost all games I've thrown at it on ultra settings.


Really nice case, cool design and comes with 2 fans, one with LEDs.

Power Supply

Just a PSU, nothing much else to say, works just fine, shouldn't die anytime soon.

Optical Drive

Just a simple DVD drive for Windows and drivers, possibly some movies.

Operating System

I love this OS so much, it has such a smooth interface, its super easy to customize, it has DX12 support, and much more features.


This thing is huge, considering its my first monitor, its 1080p, IPS, has built in speakers, what more could you want?


This keyboard may not be mechanical, but it feels very nice to use, it has red LED back lighting, and 6 programmable G keys, very good keyboard.


This is a super good budget/starter mouse, feels very smooth has RBG lighting, and 2 extra buttons on the side.


Probably my favorite peripheral on this list, this headset actually cover my ears, rather then rest on them like other headphones I've used, and I can comfortably wear my glasses without the headphones pushing them against my ears, and the mic is actually pretty decent, would recommend.


This mouse pad is really smooth, and it feels really nice, my only complaint is it gets dirty and dusty easily.

If you download ASUS Aura software you can change the LED's on the motherboard to be a static color. If you get an ASUS ROG STRIX card you can sync up the affects for both LEDs to be in sync.

Yeah I tried that, but couldn't find any for my mobo, but I actually like the RBG subtly accompanying the red.

Yes, but can it change the color of the motherboard?

Is your case still doing good? Im thinking of getting it. Its hard to find a good budget case with good airflow and that has more than 2 USB ports.

DonPlayzGamez submitter 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

It's doing fine, I don't have the best airflow, but nothing is overheating. I think that's due to my horrifying cable management lol.
