I would first like to acknowledge the people on the tomshardware forums who helped me throughout the process. Whenever I have a issue during the process of building my pc, they instantly reply around 10 minutes.

Alright, I'm really proud of myself upon building this pc. This is my first gaming pc while being on a budget. My parents never thought their 18 year old son can build his own computer...boy were they wrong. She is not the prettiest build, but she does get the job done. She runs even the most the most demanding games at 60 fps at high settings.

One thing I like to point out. There aren't a lot of videos pointing out a few "rookie" mistakes that people do. I wished I knew that if you installed the graphics card, you have to connect the monitor to it via HDMI. I at first booted up via VGA to the motherboard, but I got nothing coming up. Then the tomshardware people told me that if you installed a gpu in the pci-e slot, you have to connect the monitor through the gpu.

I accidentally removed the ram off the list. Didn't even noticed, the ram I used were Corsair Ripjaws that cost around $50.

Very nice budget build. An SSD in the future even if it is just for the OS would be a good idea. Nice first build though.
