+ Total (United States):
This is my first build and it took me months of preparation. I did tons of research making sure all my parts were compatible and able to fit my needs and budget. I probably spent hours watching build videos, but it all payed off. I know not everything is color coordinated, but performance is what mattered to me most. Also, I know the graphics card is a pup compared to others, but I wanted to make sure I had a strong foundation (ie. motherboard, CPU, etc.) rather than spending more on a graphics card because I want this PC to last a long time. If I really feel like I need a better graphics card I'll get one, but so far it's actually proved itself.
This CPU isn't top notch, but for me it is. It's pretty fast with it's 3.6 ghz.
I first had a water cooler, but then came to realize it wasn't compatible with my motherboard and that I'd have to order a new bracket from the website. I didn't feel like waiting weeks for it so I bought this because it had incredible reviews. For only $60 it's amazing. It's quiet and keeps my CPU really chill.
I have no complaints about this motherboard. It works perfectly and adds sparkle with the customizable colors ;).
Ram is fast. No complaints here.
It's pretty amazing switching from a 1Tb laptop to a gaming PC with SSD. My startup time is about 5-10 seconds. That's even after 3 months of use.
It's a hard drive. Can't expect anything spectacular; works great though.
As I mentioned in the description, it was all I could get at that time, but it proved it's use and works smoothly. Screen tearing happens in certain games here and there, but overall it's phenomenal for only $180.
Cheap affordable case that includes a clear window for viewing the beauty of technology. Also great mobility for cable management xD.
Powerful, sturdy PSU. Only issue I had was the sata power cable was in a weird position so I couldn't mount my SSD properly. Meaning it's at an angle and not lying flat on the interior.
