Hi everyone! After lurking for many months I've finally made the decision to build my first gaming pc. I wanted a machine that could game with buttery smooth graphics and also watch videos.
Cpu - i5 6600k since I don't need the hyper threading of the i7 the i5 is more the all I need for gaming.
Cpu cooler - deepcool captain 240 it was on special at Canada computers and it looks cool.
Mobo - asus z170-a got this cause of the look and features
Ram - corsair vengeance lpx 16gb ram is ram
Gfx - msi gtx 1070 aero oc, I got this since it was in stock at ncix and the price.
Hdd - WD blue 1 tb
Ssd - samsung evo 850 250gb windows drive
Psu - evga 550watt g2 just enough for what I need.
Fans - deepcool tf 120 white led, got these since they were on special also they looked cool.
Overall everything went smoothly with the build after watching videos and guides from here, was a lot of fun to build it as it made time go by so quick. All the games I play (overwatch, rust, h1z1, and guild wars 2) run so smooth and high frames with maxed settings. Next I would like to buy a monitor since my current one is outdated any recommendations?.
