Description

I am so sorry for the iPhone quality photos.

I've built a PC before with my boyfriend. Well, sort of. My coworker came and helped us, and there were too many people so I had to leave. Anyway! It was only a matter of time until I built my own. After some skrimping and saving, it's finally complete!

I have to admit, I was pretty damn proud that I built this thing completely on my own, considering I didn't really pay attention during the first build. It was surprisingly easy. Although, cable management in this case was rather frustrating. So, aesthetically, the inside is not so great. Perhaps I'll take a weekend to redo the inside. I was just really excited to get it up and running.

This build is absolutely, entirely for gaming. While it may not be the recommended standard for Fallout 4, I'm still relatively new to gaming, so I've got lots of catching up to do. I mostly want to be able to play modded Skyrim, which will most likely be the most taxing on my system. I was originally planning on getting the GTX 950, but my boyfriend wanted to get the new Assassin's Creed anyway. Considering the promotion, and the fact that he would pay the difference, I was perfectly content with going up to 970!

I had to go with a pink case. Sorry, I just had to. I wanted something more exciting than black or white. It's not the best case, admittedly, but it sure is pretty. Plus, with five fans, there sure is a good amount of air flow.

Crap keyboard for now until I can afford another one. I definitely plan on getting a mechanical keyboard in a month or two. Oh... and a desk.

You know it's great to see more flare on this website. Nice to see a pink case for once! Looks great i reckon :) As for your parts selection, i wish i couldnt find some faults but i just have to mention the PSU. EVGA is great and i love them but that PSU is one of their first and it's not that great of a unit. I love your enthusiasm but maybe one day when you get some $ to get a better mouse and keyboard you can get a new PSU :) otherwise great GPU and storage! Really digging it !

This is pretty cool. A little different from what we usually see on here

If I were you I'd spray paint that Optical drive with some Orange Plastidip so it fits the scheme.

I was about to say great build. And then I saw those cables. Still good though, just manage some of those to the back of the case.

Nice build, love the case! I have the same one lol and honestly I think for this build you did fine on the power supply. It has the molex connectors for the case fans and that gpu/cpu setup doesn't pull a ton of power, great job +1 :)
