This is my first computer build, and is compiled of hundreds of hours of research, part picking, tutorial watching, and building, all of which was compiled into my fourteen year old brain. Originally, I wanted to get pascal, but I will be out of country during both the 1080 and 1070 releases. I settled for a 960, that I can upgrade maybe to a 1080ti in the near future. This computer was built for games, and nothing else. All these parts were great to work with, and from the time I ordered the parts on amazon to the time I was gaming was only 48 hours. Named it winter nights because I got the idea on a, you guessed it, winter night.

EVGA Geforce GTX 960 4GB SSC ACX 2.0+: With a name like that, how couldn't it be good? Great GPU for the money. Runs CS:GO at max settings at 300fps, GTA 5 and games of that nature it runs at max settings at 60fps or more. (tested minecraft, 800fps)
