Rome wasn't built in a day, and this PC wasn't either. This was a stressful build because it was the first time I did anything like it and I did it all by myself. So as the title states, I wanted to play Overwatch on PC rather than console because of the larger competition. So I had a budget of about 500 dollars that sadly got heavily extended towards the end of this so because i made a lot of changes
I guess the main reason it got so big is after i learned more about PC parts and I went back and worth between graphics cards constantly. I thought i wanted a Nvidia 1050ti but them i was told that it was out of style so I switched to AMD 470, but then someone said the 480 was better. Finally my friend told me to get the 1060 cause it was better so I just stuck with that.
Another thing that i think is really good to mention is that. This does not include a monitor because I haven't purchased one yet, but it's on the way. Also the reason the price went up so much was probably because of some of the extra add ons i have like extension cables and so on. The PC by itself is about $850 but could be even cheaper.
Overall I had a really fun experience amongst the stress, and I would do it again for a friend or loved one. It runs really well and looks amazing. If you have any questions about this build don't be afraid to ask, and if you like the build don't forget to like it and tell me in the comment section.
Nice inexpensive fan. I bought it mostly because it doesn't protrude off the MOBO like most coolers and it just fits with the cooler scheme. It's pretty silent to contrary to popular belief.
Cheap MOBO that get's the job done and was recommended to me but no overclocking.
So this was the last part I got and definitely the most expensive. Even though its probably one the most expensive 1060 on the market, i think it lives up to it's performance. Right now I don't have a monitor so i'm using my TV as a screen. My TV is a Samsung 4k UHD. When i first started playing Overwatch, I didn't realize it but my setting were preset to 4k Resolution. Surprisingly enough I was still getting a consistent 60fps on Ultra settings which is crazy. Now if your looking for a 4k gaming card I wouldn't recommend this one but i'm just saying it has the capacity to preform at that level.
EDIT: So I didn't realize my Overwatch settings had an FPS cap on them. After removing the FPS cap, my frames went WAY up. In 1080p I can reach up to 170-180 FPS. In 1440p about 130 and in 4k between 90-100. ALL settings at Ultra, which is crazy! Well this is most likely because it's Overwatch, but this is a great card!
On top of it's performance, it's build and aesthetics really grew on me. Even with 3 fans the GPU stays pretty quite while gaming. It also keeps a low temperature between 50-60 C. The RGB lights are my favorite part because they just bring so much to the design of the build and they have alot of different settings to go with them. I especially like the music mode where the lights flash to the beat.
Absolutely beautiful case!!! I honestly couldn't ask for more. It's a sleek white with a side panel so I can see my components, and an amazing RGB set up. So hidden gems with this case are the cable set up in the back. More specifically how the fan connectors have extra slots for more fans you might buy. These fans can all be hooked up together and contorlled by one button on the front of the case. Also the bottom of the case has plenty of open space for any power cords you want to hide away.
Nice power supply, gets the job done but no module.
Nice white LED fans that add a certain flair to any build.
This is a really nice keyboard for the price. I think its a great combo deal getting both a mouse and Keyboard. The keyboard keys are similar to mechanical keys with Cooler Masters special design. Also the mouse has great tracking.
I recommend buying these for any Phantex case. The only thing that sucks is the magnets barley stick on the roof so you need extra adhesive.
