Description

This was my first ever build which went surprisingly well, except for the fact that the motherboard came with an outdated BIOS which would not allow me to install Windows until I updated it, but that was an easy fix. I originally wanted to purchase 16GB of ram, but ram prices are crazy right now and don't seem to be dropping any time soon, so 8GB will do for now. Both streaming and gaming are a breeze, and I am able to hit 60+ fps with nearly max settings on any game. The only thing left to do is get some RGB strips in this beast! Ignore any cable management you see... or don't see haha.

Part Reviews

CPU

The countless reviews on this monster of a processor speak for itself. Great price and good for entry level builders like myself. Makes everything from browsing the web to editing photos a breeze.

Motherboard

Has everything I need and more. Bios is easy to navigate, just make sure it's up to date before installing an OS, lost a few hairs over an easy fix lol.

Memory

Great ram, does the job. Price is ridiculous right now but that has nothing to do with how well it performs, plus you can always get more along the way.

Storage

Plenty of space for what I need. Fast and sleek.

Video Card

What a beast. I run Fortnite at 200 fps with mixed settings, 60+ on epic which is overkill. Totally worth if you cannot commit to a 1080, and the white LED lighting is a nice touch.

Case

So beautiful, and cable management was too easy. The included accessories are a great bonus.

Power Supply

Wasn't planning on using this PSU at first, but I have no regrets. Black cable sleeves make it that much better. People stress over fully-modular when it really doesn't make that much of a difference.

I am going to use your parts and a different mother board to make a PC and by the way your build is sick

Priority for streaming is an ssd and 16gb of ram. If you play/stream pubg, you will quickly find out why.

Nice build!!. As someone who is not a huge fan of "Christmas color lighting" your computer i really like the white lights. Not to flashy but just gives it enough. I would strongly recommend getting an SSD at least to put your OS on. Your boot up times will be much better. And just about any program or game you store on it will have much better boot ups and run smoother.

Thanks! Yeah my next investment is definitely an SSD which I plan on getting in the next couple of weeks, along with more ram to fill the two remaining slots.
