Title is an exaggeration but I do get many "why do you need to keep changing things?" questions asked. This is my latest iteration of my main pc that I use for work and gaming. My work is simple customer service from home so my build is incredibly more than competent. Prices listed are what I paid and are explained below. This build has taken many months buying an item here and an item there to come to the finish. My potato phone isn't the best for pics but that's all I have. I apologize if I'm a bit wordy but I try my best to explain my parts, how I received them, and why. I hope you all enjoy!
Monitor #1 AMH A399U UHD 39.5" 4k PLS Bought after watching TekSyndicate's video regarding this monitor. For the price it's hard to argue the performance. I absolutely love it. My only complaint is there is a bit of glare. There is a pane of tempered glass that is removable, but I'll keep it as is.
Monitor #2 Samsung SyncMaster 204b Purchased off of my local craigslist. Strictly for a second screen to put non important things up while working, browsing online, or gaming.
Corsair H50 Liquid CPU Cooler This is used with the NZXT Kraken G10 and XFX R9 390X Short tubes made positioning difficult with the rest of the build. In a push pull configuration. Price after promo code and mail in rebate from Newegg.com
NZXT Kraken G10 GPU Cooling Bracket Bought off of /r/hardwareswap. Fan is a 92mm Noctua. Loved it thus far.
EDIT 04/22/17 Current hardware installed
Bought at Micro Center. I sold the motherboard originally purchased with the processor. It's been great as expected. Right now it's at 4.4GHz. I have not tried to push it further.
I received this from Corsair after having to send back two H60s for failure. So far it's been great and much more quiet compared to the H60. Running in push/pull.
Black Friday sale price. Better performance than my other SSD. Glad I bought.
Price is explained in a previous build here. It's good for what it is but not worth full price. Still better than a traditional hard drive.
I made a mistake on this purchase. I bought off of jet.com using a $15 off $50 promo code. I saw the 5 year warranty in the description and bought immediately. I did not read the actual model number. This model does carry that warranty but is noisy. I bought this due to the below drive starting to act weird. Not a great purchase, but not bad.
Here at pcpartpicker.com we've seen plenty of these. That is exactly what led me to buying this. Build quality is top notch and super simple to work with. Very happy with the purchase. Price after using promo code with jet.com
This was purchased because at the time I originally did crossfire 290X this was the best option available. The G1600 received a favorable review by Johnnyguru.com so I pulled the trigger. Price after Newegg.com promo code and mail in rebate.
Yes I occasionally burn a cd or dvd. For the price why not.
Bought from frys.com during a promo (sign up for their email!). While it does not have too many programmable buttons, the price was right and the comfort is great. Glad to have it.
Bought from Gamestop after a promo and coupon. I'm not a big audiophile but these cans are comfortable and provide great sound.
Given to me from Micro Center from a mistake from my very first purchase. Again, great customer service from MC!
