Description

*introduction Had a previous build that didn't go well, Amd fx 6300 with radeon r7 was a budget build... had low frame rates and had some issues so I decided to build a much better one.

  • item 1 > Processor < Starting off bought the processor Intel Xeon V3 1231 V3 for Non Overclocking And being basically the i7 3770 without the Integrated GPU (Making it run cooler) I was impressed that It costed £205 With the delivery. My other option was an i5 for £179 So for a difference of £26 I got the Xeon.

  • item 2 > Motherboard < I've choosen the Motherboard, I didn't know which one to choose between H87 Asus or H87 MSI I've been knowing that Asus got better Motherboards but The MSI was much nicer looking so instead of getting a better looking board that is better in quality I've got the Asus H97 Pro Gamer.

  • item 3 > Case < Looking for a case that had both elegant and spacious design and not more than £70 Came across the NZXT S340 Now the big problem White Or black after a long ammount of time finally choose the White as the interior is already black and is gonna look better from outside.

  • item 4> Videocard < Videocard Important part as I've had a radeon videocard previously and had some problems with sound (Radeon r7 260x) Amd True Technology so I tried to stay away from radeon for awhile. So I've got the MSI Nvidia GTX 970 Which I'm really impressed and I woudn't change it for an Radeon anytime soon

  • item 5 > Power Supply <
    Had to choose between EVGA Supernova 650W and Corsair Builder Series CXM 600W First The Evga sounded way better than the Corsair for following reasons: Gold Rated Efficiency, and being fully modular, So I've read some reviews saying it gets loud and so and from me being loud is the worst I'd rather have a modular with bronze efficency than a loud one. So I went for the Corsair as being reliable and much more quiet from reviews.

  • item 6 > Ram < For the moment 8Gb DDR3 1600Mhz Corsair Vengeance (Upgrading soon to another 8Gb)

  • item 7 > HDD < 2Tb Western Digital 3.5 Inch 7200 RPM

I was originally going to get the black version of this case, because all internals are black/red but after seeing how the black/red/wht looks im sold, I've always had a thing for white cases, they feel more classy

Glad you enjoyed it, Always had a thing for white cases too, And like you I thought That the black case would look better and most of my friends said to go for the black one I had a feeling that the white would be better and still today I haven't got bored of it if I had a chance to change for black I'd still choose white
