Description

I am 22 years old. I built this because I got bored with my Xbox One and the limitations associated with console gaming. I had never built a computer until now. This is the outcome. I am proud of myself and the product to say the least. My computer is now an unstoppable harbinger of gaming fortitude.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Love the CAM interface that coincides with this device. It functions amazingly

Motherboard

I wish I would have gone with a better board. The BIOS isn't exactly the MOST user friendly. I will swap it out eventually. I still give it 5 stars though

Memory

Great RAM. Wouldn't have it any other way unless I wanted to waste $500 on RAM. No thanks

Storage

THIS IS INCORRECT. LoL.....

Too lazy to fix part but I actually put in a Samsung 850 Evo Pro SSD. I love it. I also use this Intel SSD as external sometimes.

Samsung = 5 stars

Intel=4 stars*

I would only go with Intel if I was going with a PCIe SSD

Video Card

Okay, these graphics cards are actually the 2GB SC ACX 2.0 version but PC part picker doesn't seem to know about it. I have 2 of them SLI'd with a "long" EVGA bridge. Looks beautiful, see pictures.

Case

Love the snug, no wasted space look. This does that beautifully. I wish the see through plastic didn't scratch so easily

Power Supply

I swapped this out for an 850w fully modular. I did this because I added the second GPU. I love both PSUs

Keyboard

Good for gaming, not so much for everyday typing. For everyday typing (writing an essay) I use a Razer Deathstalker. Love both boards

Mouse

There isn't a better mouse. Wireless is for scrubs. Wireless data communication can't compete with wired speeds. End of story

Headphones

I have these and the Klipsh Speakers. My girlfriend isn't a fan of the speakers (lol) so I use the headphones mostly. They're decent, I repeat, decent. Surround sound isn't the best I've heard.

Really nice! Good that you swapped out the PSU! I could see the PCPer's ragers come from a mile away.

Shouldn't those memory sticks be in slots 1 and 3 starting from the right to operate in dual channel? A quick glance at the motherboard manual looks as though that is the case. Correct me if I'm wrong
