My old HP Pavillion Laptop broke on me and didn't work. I didn't bother to repair it because it was just useless to me. I was unable to do any task what so ever. I got 30 FPS on most games on all low and it always crashed on me during boot. After 1 month of saving money and some additional money from my mom i was able to build this computer <3. Though at first i thought building a computer was hard i gave it a shot and watched a lot of tutorials on youtube to help me. After research of parts and people helping me on this forum i was able to make this myself after like 8 hours of struggling lol.

CPU - The FX-6300 is a really good AMD CPU, i first thought that intel was the way to go because i was on the bandwagon on it, but i found this CPU which is a good fast bang for the buck and it's good for gaming. Also being able to overclock this for me to 4.4 GHZ is amazing __^
Motherboard - Got this at the NCIX warehouse sale, and i was able to get this for only 50 bucks. After buying a crappy AsRock Motherboard that was defective, i was able to get a really good Motherboard for the same price after returning it. This motherboard aloud me to overclock easy and it just does what it's suppose to do.
CPU Cooler - Reading the reviews on the AMD stock cooler i heard it was terrible so i had to buy a CPU Cooler.Went with the standard CM Hyper 212 Evo. It puts work and makes my computer really cool and really good for overclocking.
Memory - 8 GB RAM is enough for gaming and regular task work. I chose these because they were cheap and i really like the shiny black finish on them.
Storage - Standard aswell self explanatory. Note: Looking to get an SSD in the future but for now im just using a standard 1 TB which is enough for me.
Video Card - This graphics card is amazing i am able to play any game on max settings, without having the fan go to 100%. These fans are super quiet and keep your GPU cool all the time. Not only that but i was able to overclock my GPU with ease!
Case - Went to a NCIX Warehouse sale and found this lying around. I decided to pick it up because of it's really cheap price and it's sleek design. With it's easy toolbox method, i didn't have to use a single screw to screw any of the hard drives. Also cable management was easy on this case as there are many routing holes to choose from.
Power Supply - Decided to go for a standard modular power supply as i hate non modulars lol. It's been doing great and was able to maintain my computer.
Monitor - I was going to choose an Acer Monitor but i was tight on budget so i quickly chose this monitor. After reading the review of this monitor on newegg i was instantly hooked on buying it and i had no regret at all. Overall does it's job and had no problems what so ever. Picture was is just amazing.
Case Fan - After buying my Case from the sale i only had 1 120mm fan in the case and decided to buy these fans. Not only do they look really nice but it also help better air flow and ventilation throughout the case.
