Description

This is my first ever pc i have put together. When i built it, I did most of it right when putting it together but in the end i payed some to rebuilt it along with paying for 2 western digital black series 750gb hhd. That costed me $40 since it was my friends dad who did that for me. I got my gpu/cpu/cpu cooler from friends for free. I didnt have to pay my friend for the cpu/cpu cooler so i could get windows 10 home. With the wireless adapter im using with high internet SPEED i can download a game, play a game, talk on Skype and not have any lag. I downloaded H1Z1 in 10 minutes. Got my EVGA 780 from my uncle. I only bought a MOTHERBOARD, RAM, PSU, WINDOWS, 2 front intake fans, 1.4 tbs, keyboard and mouse combo, Thermal Compound.

Part Reviews

CPU

Over clocks to 4.0ghz stable

CPU Cooler

It was hard to put on but keeps it pretty cool

Video Card

Cant get any better than this because it beats 950,960, and its comparable to the 970.

Case

Wire management sucks not a lot of room to move but it works

Operating System

love it better than 7

Case Fan

Bright red but loud as hell tho

Keyboard

Great for your first pc gaming keyboard and mouse

Dude...bro...bro, dude...you just saved a megaload of money here! Free CPU, free GPU, free coolers...who are your friends, and where can I find them?! Also, red and black are my favorite colors, so free +1's for that! The inside of the case is very tidy, and the keyboard-mouse combo looks lick with this build! Good job, my compadre!
