Description

Gaming/ Student build. I got the case for my birthday and ran with a white and black colour scheme from there. Worked over the summer and saved up until I could finally upgrade from my 4-year-old Lenovo Y40-70 laptop. P.S. Only two monitors in the pictures but a third is on the way.

I usually clean out my files regularly so that's why there's such a "small" amount of storage. I install my more popular games on the SSD and the rest go on the HDD.

Hope you guys like it, feels great to finally have my own machine.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great CPU for the price. No need to overclock, does its job perfectly fine. Never overheats, couldn't ask for a better reliability. Been in heavy use for 3 months with no problems.

CPU Cooler

Does its job. A little loud but for the price, I can't really complain.

Motherboard

Good budget mobo. I do regret not getting a 270 as I could have gotten a 6700k for basically the same price and a little more power.

Memory

Good ram, not much else to say.

Storage

Samsung EVO SSD, it is what it is.

Video Card

Spent AGES deciding which card to get. Chose this one and I'm happy with its performance. however, it does get loud under load but with headphones on you don't even notice.

Case

Nice looking case, easy cable management.

Wireless Network Adapter

Decent wifi card, go wired if you can though.

Monitor

Great primary monitor, my brother used it for 2 years and then gave it to me, never had any issues.

Monitor

Great reliable and cheap monitor. about as good as a cheap secondary monitor can get.

Keyboard

Nice keyboard, doesn't really have the same mechanical feel but its good for gaming and gets the job done.

Mouse

Good mouse, adjustable weights, better for smaller hands though.

If you would have put the pc on the desk next to the mousepad your setup would pretty much look exactly like my setup

Does the benQ have audio in? Or do you need an HDMI for that?

You would have to buy the slightly more expensive version of the monitor with HDMI

But if I bought speakers, could I just plug it into the pc?
