Afters 6 years finally, this is my first pc after all those years trying to get a real pc not a laptop anymore. It took me at least 1 year to research and keep changing parts from time to time. Really stressed at first doing this but it's worth the wait for the CPU and GPU.
I needed this one for both video editing and gaming and I see better improvements thus far than my 2011 Sony Vaio Laptop which wasn't really for those two
Gaming: I only play Dota 2 and CSGO so this pc is enough for me to run those two games as it is highly popular in my place and events keep going on here. But i'm planning to try other games soon once I have money again.
Video Editing: I've been video editing since 2012 and this is probably one of the most satisfying things I've ever done. Render speeds are better, You could preview your clips faster, and the best part of it is you don't need to waste your time just doing editing you could easily multitask and do other things. You won't easily get stressed or run out of time making a project and submitting it at the right time because you can't edit or haven't rendered it yet.
Researching pc parts was probably the hardest things I've ever done and it almost consumed all of my time. From TechSource to JayzTwoCents and some other youtubers it was really a hard time but at I gained at lot of knowledge doing this kind of stuff
Enough for now, would try to update this build when I can :)
btw this build is aimed to be a red/black themed one because of the peripherals I use so i'm trying to buy stuff if I can
No Windows 10 yet still Windows 8.1 planning to upgrade

One of the best budget cpus out there you won't regret buying it . Not suggesting to overclock if you are gonna use the stock cooler with it but it performs well but not suited for oc. Low usage still needs to be optimized well.
It is doing good for it's price nothing to mention other than you need to get one more if you do video editing and photo editing
Boot times is okay for me, It is a hard drive and it does its job 5 stars again
Can really run e-sport titles in 60 fps or more. It is enough for 1080p gaming
A nice psu, no issues with it right now, and a bang for the buck
Wireless Network Adapter
Same speeds as my old laptop adapter, no speed increase, and it is okay for gaming stable ping no lag or what
A good budget case fan, nice leds and it is really quiet
Going from a 720p 15inch you never want to go back with this 1080p IPS Monitor. Great display and viewing angles 10/10 perfect for video editing and gaming.
Enough if you want to tryhard in csgo kappa. Amazing sensor and a nice looking mouse
Used it for 2 years but earcups should be worked on and comfort is really bad but still good sound though.
Best 7.1 headset for under $100 only complain is the mic of it but still 5 stars.
Just a normal gaming mousepad
This is what a budget case really looks like, kinda okay but bad cable management
Just a normal motherboard with all of the components but 2 dimm slots I think is not enough to upgrade or future proof this system.
Really loud speakers and great sound quality for only $18
