Laptop was dying and getting hot, so I felt like upgrading. After seeing the huge price difference of building a computer instead of buying one, I went with building it. I really felt building it. Also thanks to Microcenter and newegg, I was able to pick up parts for cheap.
Really fast and doesn't get too hot, according to cinebench, it's faster than the i7's in laptops.
Boots windows in 6 seconds, freaking fast
A little loud but I can only hear it if I'm downloading multiple things at once.
8 gigs of vram is more than I'll ever need right now. Runs every game I have at ultra 1080p60+.
Manual was kind of lackluster and the back took some effort to put back in if you route cables in the back, only came with 1 fan, but the outside looks great so it was worth the effort
It works, double than what I need, t'was modular
