This is my first PC build! I'm pretty happy that I now have a strong work-horse to use Alias AutoStudio, Maya, Adobe Suite and VRED. I'm also going to use this setup for causal racing sim gaming such as "Project Cars"! I decided to get an Asus GTX 970 so I can have plenty of CUDA cores for my core programs. I picked these parts in hope to have a strong foundation to build upon. Thank you PC Part Picker for making this build super simple......almost too simple! I was able to compare AMD vs Intel builds and was able to make a solid decision on what is worth more while for my intended use. Everything was compatible and worked like a charm!
Super fast yet efficient processor, I'm glad I choose this over the AMD FX Series.
Really Inexpensive but good at keeping my CPU at 40 degrees Celsius most of the time while being quiet!
This is the easy button of motherboards! But if you don't care much about built-in Wifi and Bluetooth you can get the regular Asus Z97 Pro for less money.
This is a sleek case that can fit into any modern decor without screaming look at me! I'm very happy with the space and configurations. It is a very quiet case. The Define lineup is awesome!
