This is my first pc build and I love white pc's and setups so I went out and made one.
CPU I choose the i5 6600k because all I am planning on doing is playing games at 1440p right now(until I get a 4k monitor). I reason I did not get an i7 6700k was mainly it was not within my budget so I got the "k" version to kind of boost up the capabilities of this cpu.
CPU Cooler Planning on doing some overclocking, not much else to say.
Motherboard It Z170-A fit right into my build with its color scheme and the price point also it has nice extra features.
Memory Its always nice to have that 16 gb of ram nowadays because especially with new games they utilize 16 gb a lot. And of course, the colors matched.
Storage Good to have an SSD at this price point and even better to have a 2 tb sshd for quick mass storage so I can download lots and lots of games.
Video Card When I first laid eyes on this beauty, I knew I needed one of these for myself. It is perfect for almost anything and at 1440p, this baby can handle anything I throw at it and manage to run everything at over 60fps (except for GTAV but that is due to a cpu bottleneck but I am at 50fps max settings).
Case I was originally planning on using a white s340 but it was was out of stock so this was a close second.
Power Supply Fully Modular and 650W is plenty for this build.
OS I opted to buy the full priced Window 10 key because this is my first build and I did not want to mess up during windows installation but next time I will go for a software swap one for cheaper.
So at the end of the day I thought I broke my mother board about 30 times. I hit the motherboard with the blade of a knife on accident trying to unbend a usb 3.0 pin (couldn't fix the pin but the usd port still works somehow perfectly fine), I have dropped a screwdriver from about 1 foot above the mother board on it (don't ask why), and multiple other things but in the ends the build turned out great and I am loving every second of using it.
