Description

So I've never had a pc, or a laptop that could even attempt gaming. I've always played on console and I have some good (mostly bad) memories... but I have been wanting to build a pc for a few years now and I finally did it!

I'm super happy with this build so far! My only complaint is I can't get the ram past 2666 MHz. I ran prime95 to test the ram stability at 2666 and it ran with no errors for 2 hours. CPU was at 68C during that test at 3.2 GHz. I haven't tried overclocking the CPU or GPU yet because it kinda makes me nervous since this is all new to me. I'm planning on upgrading to 16GB of ram as soon as prices start coming down, but for now 8GB will have to get the job done. Plus, I need to get a better monitor than what I have now lol.

Pretty nice and well rounded build especially for a 1st timer.. How long did you spend researching your parts? I currently have Ryzen 5 1600/Same gpu but I have received 2 dead mobos from asus and Im not gonna buy either a gigabyte or msi board. Great build

I spent about 2 months learning as much as I could before I had the money to build it. I was skeptical about any brand motherboard because they all had bad reviews for being DOA, so I just pulled the trigger on the one that looked the best and I haven't had any issues so far. :D

That's what I can say about this build: perfection. :D
