This is my first build and I'm coming from a mac (yea...). I have been studying up on parts for about a year, so i was pretty confident in the Micro Center when I went to go buy the parts. I was originally just going to go to get a 4590, monitor, HD, and possibly Windows. With the motherboard CPU combos the 4690k wasn't a lot more than the 4590 an H97/B85 motherboard.
CPU: Got a good deal on it, haven't OCed it yet because I am still on the stock cooler. I haven't had it be the bottleneck yet, so I don't think I will be OCing it any time soon, might stick a better cooler on it just for stability sooner than that though.
Motherboard: Works just fine, haven't ran into any problems with it yet. It was pretty easy to find where to plug everything in, also was blue and black, which is my color scheme.
Memory: Good, Blue RAM.
SSD: Quick, can get my OS loaded in under 10 secs. Putting some of my favorite games that would benefit from it on here also.
HDD: I'm putting some of my less favorite Games, Media, etc.
Video Card: I haven't found anything that doesn't run at 60 FPS on highest settings, also came with Rainbow 6 Siege.
Case: Great case, the Micro Center was out of the blue/black ones, so I got this one and might paint the blue parts, or replace them with replacement blue parts. Looks great with very little cable management.
PSU: Got a great deal on it, will probably use it for about 10 years with the amount of wattage on it.
OS: Seems good so far; best OS for gaming.
Monitor: Good cheap monitor. It does shake a lot if the table moves or I touch it, it's not too noticeable though.
Mouse: Got this mouse off Best Buy when they had it 50% off a few days last week. Best mouse I have ever owned!
Works Great! Good CPU, I don't think it is worth the money to go skylake with the deal I got on this one.
Good Motherboard, easy to locate all of the ports; good locations for all the ports
Both work as expected. Good Blue RAM
Really fast, boots up system in under 10 secs, also has enough storage for games that would benefit from one.
Got is at a great price, but other than that it's just a good 1TB HDD.
Great graphics, the 970 runs everything I throw at it. It will sometimes make a audible whistle sound when the fan first turns on, not a big enough issue to return though.
Great case, going to try to paint the blue parts blue; I got it because the Micro Center was out of the Blue/Black ones. Has a great amount of space in the side for cable management.
Wouldn't have gotten it if I hadn't have gotten a fantastic deal on it. Give me a lot of room for future expansion though.
Best OS for Gaming, and IMO a good well thought out OS.
I already knew about the shaky stand and got it anyway. The stand is shaky, but it't not noticeable or distracting unless you are looking for it.
Best mouse I have ever owned.
