Description

I mainly use this machine for gaming and maybe video editing in the future. I found this a great upgrade from my Dell Inspiron Laptop from 2012. The 1070 will run any game I want at 1080p @ 60fps. I absolutely love it. The SSD makes boot times and launching applications super fast and as the first time I've ever had an SSD, I see why they've become so popular. I probably would've been good with an i5 7600k, but I really wanted to go all out with my first build. The i7 has been great so far. Persoanlly love all the RGB with this build. Can't wait to build more in the future!

Part Reviews

CPU

I probably would've been good with an i5 7600k, but I really wanted to go all out with my first build. The i7 has been great so far. Can't wait to overclock.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my CPU nice and cool. Was a little difficult to install in S340 though.

Motherboard

Great looking motherboard with lots of features. Also it has RGB that's really nice.

Memory

Works really well with ASUS Aura and works very well with my motherboard and graphics card.

Video Card

Love how I can actually run games at a decent framerate and detail.

Case

Really nice case, perfect size for my build.

Operating System

It's windows.

Keyboard

Came in the box with caps falling out, not a great first impression. It has been an okay keyboard though. Probably going to upgrade to full mechanical at some point.
