This is my first build and I'm super proud of it! I based this roughly off the entry level AMD Gaming build, with a couple things upgraded. I added the ssd, keyboard and mouse because they are part of the final product, although they were given to me by a friend.
I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to build. I used BitWit's step by step tutorial on youtube, and after being super careful and rewatching each step multiple times, I proceeded and finished the build. I had a bit of trouble with the fans- the screws for some reason don't actually fit the holes in the fan that they're supposed to go through. It's not a big deal though, they were simply the cheapest fans that had blue led's on them at the time. I will probably replace them at some point because they are rather noisy. They do the job though, three input and 2 output fans keep temps below 70, even under load. The case looks super good: ever since I saw someone with a windowed case I knew I had to have one. This thermaltake does the job quite well, and leaves some room in case I ever want to upgrade something.
All said and done, the total bill for everything minus the keyboard, mouse, and ssd was about $700 at the time of purchase.
Feel free to ask questions!
