I added custom white sleeved cables and a little Stormtrooper. ;)
I got a new keyboard, mouse and mouse pad.
I installed some LEDs today.
I haven't had a desktop pc in 15 years. I did quite a lot of research in february and now finished my first build.
I wanted to get a machine, that allows me to play almost every game at 1080p and ~60fps. I also wanted to keep costs low, but at the same time choose components that have a reasonable quality. It was also important to me, that i am able to upgrade the pc in the future (memory and maybe another graphics card in crossfire). Astethics weren't too important to me, but i wanted to get a clean look.
The listed prices are what i actually paid, including rebates and discounts. I'm living in Germany and the prices are a little bit higher than in the U.S., but i could make some good bargains. I bought everything new, except from the case which i got used on eBay.
I chose the g4560 because to me it has got the best value-for-money at the moment and is sufficient for 1080p gaming.
The stock cooler would have done the job, but i think it's kind of ugly. :D
The gpu is strong enough to get ~60fps on 1080p and should not be bottlenecked by the cpu.
With 4 memory slots i am able to run the memory in dual channel mode and i will at the same time be able to get another two 4gb modules in the future. Also this mainboard allows me to get a M.2 drive in the future and a second graphics card (crossfire ready).
The cpu won't recognize any RAM above 2400Ghz, so that is what i chose.
120gb is sufficient for me at the moment. It's more than enough for OS and some important applications. Will maybe upgrade to a larger M.2 SSD in the future or add a 1TB HDD soon.
Looks clean, wasn't too expensive and has good cable management options.
From what i heard the EVGA PSUs are quite reliable and it was only 30€.
Cinebench R15: OpenGL - 110.21 fps, CPU - 380 cb
3DMARK 11: 10644
Let me know what you think about my build in the comments!
