Description

So I use this PC for gaming and light video editing. I've been playing on console my whole life playing with friends and such. Then I discovered YouTube channels like Linus Tech Tips, Rags, BitWit (AwesomeSauceNetwork), Bullet Barry, Paul's Hardware, Austin Evans, and JayzTwoCents. So I built this PC to play games at 4k Ultra at 60fps.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great Processor! I almost never go above 30% usage.

CPU Cooler

Thanks to this cooler my cpu stays at great temps. It was however, difficult to install.

Motherboard

Lots of sata ports for future storage upgrades and 2 M.2 slots. In general, a very nice board to work with.

Storage

Really Fast Read/Write Speeds

Video Card

4k Ultra 60FPS on every game I play.

Case

Just got the case because it was nice looking.

Interesting choice with the i5. Didn't forsee much use from an i7, or individuality and not slapping a 7700K/1080Ti together?

A mixture of both really. Made this before Ryzen dropped because if it wasn't this it would probably be this : https://pcpartpicker.com/user/slurp2k/saved/DpfK8d

I just grew impatient.

What monitor do you use for 4k@60 gaming? I'm looking to build a pc for the same purpose.

It's a joke on how much ram chrome uses when having multiple tabs. If you are interested on how I feel about the ram, I think it;s very good for video editing, gaming, and all my other uses
