Description

Idea started off as a basic 'work-from-home' PC that got carried away. Researching parts for the first time got me interested. Let me know how I did? Hooked up generic mouse and keyboard for now. Actually ended up spending about $1700 total out of pocket and got a few games thrown in for free

Looks good but more pics would be nice. Also that's a pretty good deal for v56

I'm honestly in shock that you spent so much on that monitor. You could've halved the monitor budget, got an M.2 SSD like this adata one, a more efficient CPU cooler then a nice keyboard with a mouse.

Monitors are generally the key portal for wasted money in my opinion, but it is a good first-time build nonethless!

The monitor was honestly a choice I made for work since that was the intention of building a PC. I needed double monitors but decided to go for a ultrawide instead. So it was either two ~$200 monitors or splurge a little for one cohesive one. Given the choices I had at the time and pricing, I chose to go with the Acer. Thanks for you input!

You know you could buy 144hz monitors for half the price you've paid.

and honestly, he could have a lot better performance if he had a 1080p monitor

And you know SCDKey sells Windows 10 Keys for 14 bucks right?

I didn't get these parts for these prices. That's just what pcpartpicker defaulted to
