Tis my first pc build ever and i'm pretty happy with how it went, other than the software part which was a pain everything was quick, easy and fun. I currently don't have a 1070 because 99% are out of stock, specifically the one that i want (EVGA Sc) but i guess ill have to wait. Since i have a 1440p the 1070 will be more than enough to run games that that resolution and i'm more than excited to try out. Ill give a quick description of why i got these specific products and how they run:
Runs extremely quick, does what it needs to do and an i5 was enough for me, as i wont be doing any video/Photoshop production. However, i will overclock it a little to 4ghz.
Great cooler and was surprisingly really easy to install in this case. At idle/ web browsing/having other applications open like steam, the CPU temp stays around 25C and while playing indie games the temps go to about 34C with this cooler maybe less. But it does the job more than enough. The cam software is also a major plus when buying Kraken coolers
Probably the best looking sub 200$ motherboard out in the market, it comes with loads of fan ports , led indicators, sli support, and the list goes on. The white camo to it really stands out .... like a lot , pair this mobo with white leds (which i will have in the future) and it will be Antarctica with white lights all over it.
Fury 8gb Ram
THIS IS SOME DANK RAM DUDE! Like the color is so black not even black can be that black. Its ram.
Corsair Force LE 240gb For 60$ this is by far the best ssd. Boot times take like 5 seconds and loading applications (Chrome for example) take a quick second. Tbh i think its in par with most high end ssds, but who am i to say that i tested every single ssd.
Seagate HDD 1TB
This hard drive has reads of 1gb/per hr and writes of 1gb/per month. Its a hard drive, i usually store everything but games and applications on it.
Budget Friendly, yet sleek and sexy design. The back panel was a pain in the !$@ to get on. But other than that cable management was easy to do. Why white? Because when its 100000 degrees outside and the sun is hitting the case through the glass the case can easily absorb it without compromising any coolness
Evga 650w GQ All black cables, gold rated, nothing much else to say other than it has eco mode which is awesome. (Eco mode means the psu doesnt use the the fan until it hits a certain load.)
Acer g257HU Smidpx 25" 1440p monitor
This monitor is SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!! I had a choice weather to go with 1440p or 144hz and i decided that i wanted to do 1440p because i wanted to take advantage of the 1070s power to be able to paly games at 60fps at 1440p, and man that was the best decision i made. No backlight bleed, the stand is a bit meh but for the price i guess ill take it, and in person it looks so much better (the design that is)
Peripherals Corsair Strafe RGB because i wanted rgb,cherry switches, and silent mechanical keys. Razer Death Adder because its such a great mouse (other than the mamba which is better imo)and it its perfectly in my palm.
Do i have to explain?
