My First Gaming PC Build (Red/Black)

by Krackeno


I first started gaming about 5 years back and have been using a gaming laptop (Lenovo y50-70) to play rust, gta5, csgo, etc. It was mostly fine for me as I got used to it but I finally made the decision to build my own PC once problems started accumulating over time. Learning all the parts seemed really hard at first but once I got into the youtube scene, over a span of a couple weeks and watching youtube videos daily that began to be interesting to me, I had all the basics down. I was initially going to go with a 1080 but with a $430 1070ti, I couldn't resist, even though it wasn't my preferred color. Picking out the other parts was fairly simple once I had a foundation to work off of.
Let me know what you think of my first build! This was really exciting for me especially once all the parts came in and seeing all the boxes. It runs very well on witcher 3 and I am so happy with the final product. I am going to tweek my cable managing a bit though as this was mostly done in one session.

Yeah I found it with $250 off on bestbuy but the order got delayed so I still haven't got it yet.

Sounds like how I made the switch, except I went from a Lenovo Y510p (i7 4700MQ and GT 755m SLI) to my current desktop. The laptop worked for ESO but it ran hot and a capable desktop just makes things more enjoyable. The learning process can be fun if you can manage to understand it all and how a PC build works.

Nice build but PLEASE fix that cable work. It completely ruins it.
