This was my first build ever.
I started buying my parts in October of 2014.
I had originally purchased a G3258 CPU for my system to try and save some cash but the end result just didn't cut it so I splurged and bought the i5-4690K.
I liked the case at first but got bored with it shortly afterwards so I made a few mods... added 2 fans on the bottom, added 2 fans on top, added side window and painted part of the case white. I had to add an external fan shroud on top as I didn't have enough room inside the case for the 2 added fans. I plan to further mod the case to make the front panel blend better with the red and white scheme.
My video card was actually free, it came with a bunch of used AMD parts that I bought and then resold for a profit.
