Description

I have always wanted to build my own custom gaming PC, but never got around to it. The thought of possibly messing something up with parts being so expensive always threw me off. I always bought prebuilt towers or gaming laptops. Finally decided to pull the trigger on a build, and I must say, I am in love.

I had some concerns about the i5 bottlenecking with a 1070 but so far have had no issues at all.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

It keeps my CPU nice and cool. Under full load the highest I have seen it get so far is 50 degrees.

Memory

These things just look amazing, and perform great. Will be buying another pair of these soon.

Video Card

I love the fact that I can change the LED color and pattern, and the fact that it goes along with in-game sound or music is too cool! Even under full load this thing is super quiet.

Case

The amount of airflow in this case is crazy, and cable management was a breeze.

Wireless Network Adapter

I ran a few speed tests, and each time I ran them I got better results than on any of my other devices that are connected either right to the modem or via wifi.

Monitor

I got this on sale for $250. For the price I paid, I can not complain. I read a lot of reviews on Amazon about serious backlight bleeding, or dead pixels. I have none of those issues.

It's not bad, you can clean it up by routing the cables through the back panel and I recommend upgrading to a quad core cpu when you get the chance.

Yea I know there are better monitors, but Where can you find a 27" 2560x1440 1ms monitor at 144hz for $250 brand new? I'm not too worried about getting the best of the best if it means a price difference of $200. Hence why I went with a 1070 and not a 1080. :P

Right, people never compare the prices.
