After months of reading guides, forums and watching YouTube videos I figured I would pull the trigger on this set up. This is my first build and I enjoyed the process quite a bit (10/10 will build again!) this computer will be used mostly for school as well as light gaming.
Before you guys start dissecting the components the case was a gift. The budget was ~750$ CAD I managed to get everything for ~850$ after tax (excluding the case) not too bad in my opinion. Overall I am quite happy with the system, temperatures seem decent haven't stressed it too much yet though! Let me know what you think!
*Please note the storage drive listed isn't the correct one it's actually a 500GB HGST 5400 RPM from my PS4, I couldn't seem to find it on this site.
Perfect little CPU for what I need, great performance when combined with the R9 380!
Looks great and BIOS was easy breezy to set up, no issues whatsoever. Little overpriced at the moment though.
Good budget DDR4 sticks the heat sinks look great too
My first SSD good price performance ratio, boots windows 10 in less than 12 sec.
Awesome card for the money haven't stressed it too much but so far easily able to play Skyrim on ultra with temps remaining under 65 degrees.
Beautiful mATX case for the money, lots of space to work with! Used for my first build and man I was spoiled!
So far so good, 10 year warranty at $99 this thing was a must buy for future upgrades. I expect it will serve me well for years to come.
