Description

This is my first PC build! Not only have I been a Mac guy most my life, but I've also been a console gamer. I figured it was time to ascend, and I wanted to do it right. This rig is primarily for gaming, and so far it is doing fantastic! No overclocking just yet, but I'm sure it will happen in the future. This site helped out so much during my build, so I'm really excited that I can now contribute! Let me know what you think.

If I were to build something like this with your color scheme, I would've called it something like "Bubblegum Speedway" or something like that.

But Neon Demon is a much better name. Good job! +1

This entire color scheme is incredible, I might try seeing if I can implement something like this with my ASUS Aura software for newly finished build. For a first PC, this is outstanding. +1.

Thank you for the kind words! If you do implement something similar, I'd love to see it!

I've still been meaning to actually sit down and get some good, clean pictures of the build and then post it in action on the site. I've been somewhat holding off until Christmas just because the last of my peripherals will be in by then so I'm real excited to see what it all looks like with a clean Corsair setup.

EDIT: Just ran in to your post on Reddit, still just as beautiful!

First off: extremely nice build. I've now changed the whole aesthetic in my build because of this.

Second: I can't find your Reddit post anymore, but I seem to remember you linking to a repo with a lot of nice desktop wallpapers, is it possible to get that link? :)

Sorry for the super late response. Don't get notified when someone comments, so I kind of just forgot to check! https://imgur.com/gallery/OsHtQ?third_party=1#_=_

Thanks! I wasn't sure what colors I wanted to go with, but I'm happy with my choices.

First off, awesome build. The only thing I would recommend is instead of going the ASTRO route, maybe going with a pair of sennhiesers and a blue yeti? Slightly more expensive but in the scheme of things barely dents your budget, and drastically enhances the sound and mic quality!

I mostly chose the Astros because they also work on my Xbox One.
