Description

I am very proud of this build. It can run pretty much any game beautifully. Although the motherboard is ghetto, it was cheap and I haven't had a problem with it. The hard drive is ok, but if I could, I would get a 7200 rpm drive though. The corsair cooler probably wasn't needed, I should've gone with the hyper 212 evo, but it does the job well despite it being pretty loud, and it looks pretty cool too I guess. Ram was cheap and looks cool as well. Case was by NZXT and is a perfect amount of space with many fan mounts and a window if I feel like spicing it up with some lights in the future. The i5 is amazing, its really all you need if you're a casual gamer like me. The gpu is good too despite it being an absolute watt addict, and the AMD software has a screen recorder with it, which is good for recording all your cool moments in game. I had to get a wifi adaptor because my internet is in a tiny closet in a different room then where my PC is. Basically you could say I went cheap on all the parts besides the cpu and gpu and maybe the cooler, which is fine I guess. Thanks for reading all the way through, and maybe I convinced some of you to get some of these parts!

Note: All peripherals were given to me for birthday/Christmas/etc

hi you could get some powerline adaptors so you can have wired connection without having a ethernet cord across the house and you can get them pretty cheap I saw some at walmart for 30 bucks i think

I had some clicking noise with my h60 installed with the pump on top of the radiator turned the radiator upside down and the noise stopped. Nice build +1

Hello, I have never had a PC before and was interested in your computer. I don't know anything about them, but do you think this is a good first computer to just play steam on? Also is this a good price for the computer?

Yes this is a great build for a first PC, it also allows for limitless upgrades in the future. I was in the same shoes as you were, not knowing much about how to build a pc. All I did was look up some videos on youtube and building a pc is not hard at all, I was 14 when I built my first one. Just look up some videos on the basics of building your own pc. Trust me, when you build your first pc and start it up for the first time, its satisfaction at its greatest.

thank you for your opinion and help, I will hopefully be buying or building a PC in the near future when I get my money together.

Pretty much any price a build has is very good, remember, your not paying anyone an extra 200 bucks to build it for you. Also, pcpartpicker automatically picks the lowest price of the item you choose. But sometimes prices will go up and down everyday. There's no really knowing of what a "good" price is because of this.
