This is my first ever build. I originally had an 8350 8core CPU and an ASRock 990fx Extreme4. The PC was going abnormally slow... Replaced the Mobo to a Sabertooth 990fx r2.0. Found out it was the CPU that was slow so I RMA'd the Sabertooth Mobo and the 8350. I got a 3570k and the MSI GD65 mobo which are both amazing together.
I love this PC and it's great.
The monitor is the best monitor i've ever had. (imo better than my old trusty CRT) So smooth..
I also had before I bought the PC.. A Razer Black Widow ultimate Mechanical Keyboard Zowiegear FK mouse ASUS VH236H Monitor (60hz, 2ms)
This will be future proof for a long time...
