This build was done primarily as a replacement for our 8 year old household PC. It served us well for so long, but it's time to retire it because it simply could not keep up with our functional and gaming needs anymore. I have been wanting to do this upgrade since last year, but was only able to save up for the components recently. Due to a big generation gap in the components, a full upgrade was necessary.
This new PC will be used for 1080p gaming, document editing and a little programming. This is my first PC build by the way, so please let me know what you guys think!
The sweet spot skylake processor for gaming. Capable of delivering tremendous performance in today's AAA game titles.
Superb build quality plus wonderful aesthetics. Has all the basic features I need and more from an mATX motherboard. Perfect for a black/white themed build.
This was recommended to me by a friend. It has cool LED effects which adds character to any build!
As a first time SSD user, I'm loving the improvement in OS boot time as well as file transfer rates. This specific brand and model does not break the bank either, so I recommend!
This one really lives up to AMD's RX series graphics cards hype. I have nothing bad to say about this card at all. The overall card design is unostentatious. It has a gorgeous metal back plate, customizable logo LED color, and sleek removable fans. But beneath that elegant exterior is a beast. Gives the promised 60+ fps in most games on high/ultra settings at 1080p. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to have a silky smooth gaming experience at 1080p.
OEM of the Tecware F3 case that I used. This mini tower gaming case supports all the important specs of an mATX build. Given the price point and all the features it has, this case is a winner.
Supplies all the juice my build needs. Can't go wrong with Seasonic.
