This is my first ever foray into PC building. I'm a big console player (PS4). One day I was playing Skyrim SE and was looking up some mods for it. I knew that there weren't a lot of good mods for my system and it started to really frustrate me. I decided that I needed a better computer since my laptop is getting old and the hinge on it is busted (dumb thing doesn't close). So, I did some research and built this.
Let me just say that after I finished the build, I was more satisfied than I have ever been with anything. I'm proud of my system.
The prices listed are right around what I paid for everything (tax included). I used 2 hard drives; the stock one from my PS4 that I upgraded months ago and one from an old laptop.
Did some OCing on the GPU, but it doesn't want to really get past 2050MHz (small detail I found out about the card after it was bought).
Update: Overclocked my CPU to 4500MHz at 1.325v. Can probably go higher, but I don't really need it to.
Update 2: Decided to return my 120mm radiator and purchase a 240; others convinced me to do it and I'm glad they did. Also upgraded the power supply since I may run SLI in the future (not to mention I was only 120W away from the max...).
Update 3: Added white mats.
Update 4: Added the NZXT Hue+ and changed three fans to the NZXT AER RGB120.
Update 5: Bought the PG348Q
