This is my first build ever and its main purpose will be gaming. A few months ago I was enlightened about how consoles are severely under powered and how pc games have a way better experience. I used to have those general thoughts like everyone else that a gaming pc would be too expensive and you have to game with the keyboard and etc ignorantly not knowing that all of the above is not true. So I was introduced to this site by a fellow student and since then ive spent about 2 months building my own personal console killer.
After some topic discussions on this site as well as a few others it was just a matter of purchasing a graphics card and waiting on it to arrive. Now that my pc is complete I would like to share my very first build
Perfect for the price. I bought it for my pc build hoping that i could skate by without the overclocked version and it works just fine. 6700k isnt necessary for me.
I like this look of this cpu cooler waaaayyyyy better than the hyper 212 evo. This cooler costs about the same as 212 evo but a major plus for me is that it doesn't take nowhere near the amount of space in my case that the hyper 212 does. Its a perfect fit with plenty of room to spare if your like myself and dont like really big cpu fan heatsinks.
Solid motherboard for the price. Fits any red or black scheme perfectly.
Ram is Ram. Handles everything I throw at it which isnt much. More than enough for what I do on a daily basis
Read speeds are perfect. Costs too much for just 250gb though. Product is perfect but I would recommend getting higher memory if you could afford it
Serves as video storage. Perfect for the job.
This is the one your going to need if you plan on gaming. Read speeds are unmatched for a mechanical drive so its perfect for long loading screens and load times. Can't be beat for gaming
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! No heating issues and performs like a beast. I have it paired with a 1080p 144hz monitor and the graphics that this thing produces have been some of the best that ive ever seen. If the gtx 1080 is out of reach but you wanna reach past the gtx 1060 than this is the card that you need no question.
Its decent for my first tower.
Works just fine. No complaints.
Way better than that trash they called windows 8.
Perfect graphics and cost for the size. Thinking about investing in its big brother later...
