Here is my first build ever. I had a budget of 1000$CAD. I was a console peasant all my life, and my friends finally convinced me to make the move. I really like this build and it works great!
-i5 cpu works great. Very good bang for buck, but the stock cooler is a bit awkward to install imo.
-The Gigabyte H270 board have RBG Leds with the RGB Fusion app that let you change the color at will. Adds a nice touch to the build.
-RAM, got those DIMMs on sale, I didn't really want leds on my ram but I couldn't find cheaper for 16 gig so I got them. they work great i guess!
-I got a 250gb SSD from PNY, works as intended, nice and fast.
-The MSI 1060 6gb have great perf all around! I can play any recent game at 60+fps @ 1080p. The msi logo on the card is RGB too. didn't know that when I bought it!
-The case was easy to build in. lots of space , really nice look, come with 2 fans, 1 rear and 1 top. It feel well built, very sturdy.
-I didn't know at the moment of buying those part that the PSU was not really good for gaming purpose. But I don't have any problem with it so far. It's semi modular wich is great for cable management!
