With Dark Souls III on the horizon I was considering getting a PS4, but instead decided to put up some extra cash for a superior machine. I couldn't be happier! I had a lot of fun researching, collecting parts, and putting this beauty together. Overall just a really enjoyable experience :)
I bought the graphics card, PSU, HDD, and CPU off of Amazon Warehouse, with those discounts it was a little less than $950 total. I am very grateful to PCPartPicker; such a great resource! A smooth ride from inception to completion.
