this build was originally my first pc built as a budget gaming rig waiting for upgrades original price of the build before anything was 730$ i have recently upgraded the cooler the ram the graphics card and soon will be getting a LG ultra wide monitor this thing is an absolute monster and i love it i would recommend every part here besides that kingston ssd due to the fact kingston is a bunch of ***** and screwed me on my first one making the rig go down for about 2 months until i recieved a replacement due to there sketchy bait and swap....... come tax time i might be getting a core i7 4790k and a evga classified z97 another 16gb ram kit and an 100i gtx and will mod the h60 to the gtx 780 ti
Mobo: i chose the mobo for the reasons of it was cheap good brand seems reliable and had usb 3.0 support i wish i went and spent more for a 990 chipset maybe but owell.
Cpu Heatsink: I have chose the corsair h60 due to its a damn AIO cooler for cheap its in push pull now with the sp10s i got another one of the ones that comes with it through corsair great cooler keeps the temps around 20 in idle and 55 underload remember im overclocked to 4.5ghz.
Ram: corsair vengeance is very common and people love it from what i here and see it is great and 1600 mhz is the sweet spot for gaming i know have 2x8gb modules and will soon be grabbing two more.
HDD: 1TB WD Blue for 55$ was gold in my eyes.
SSD: meh kingston screwed me with there bait and swap i dont recommend kingston anything to anyone i love the ssd now but i will swap out later for a samsung or something.
GPU: i had recently sold my GTX 760 sc to a buddy for 160$ and picked this beast *** brand new sealed in box 780ti for 300$ off ebay hands down thats nuts considering the original price is on the box and it was 799.99 that cost more then my original build LOL couldnt pass up for 300$.
Case: I love this case however there is some issues but its corsair but i don't know if i would recommend it because the cable management is amazing and all but the USB 3.0 connector was annoying and same with the HD audio and there seems to be very few tie down spots for cables and idk the side panels are a little annoying i hate the stupid fan mounts on the side panel and they are frustrating to put on and off other then that its a good case.
PSU: great price was 600 watts 80+ bronze and corsair what more could u ask for for 50$ will be upgrading to an EVGA 1000g2 soon =).
OS: windows 7 enough said upgraded to 10.
Custom parts: great fans and lights makes the case light up very well got a sick ram fan for 25$ not load at all mostly ascetic but man it looks sexy =)
