Description

This is my very first gaming PC build. I think it turned out really well! I tried to keep it as cheap as possible, so I had to make a few compromises:

  • Stock Cooler
  • SP120 fans(I really wanted LL120s)
  • Vengeance RGB RAM(wanted vengeance RGB pro)
  • TN panel instead of IPS panel(but I have g-sync:)
  • Didn't get headsets(using a Bose I already have)

But I am very happy about how this build turned out.

I am planning to use this for 6+ years. Let's see how it holds up.

I tried my best to keep the cables clean. I am open to criticisms.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great cost to performance. Smashin games and renders.

EDIT: Not necessarily renders, but I admire its cost performance.

Motherboard

Sexy. Period. Wish it had more fan headers though.

EDIT: that was me being clueless and now I know what fan splitters are for.

Memory

They definitely look better than in photos. Some light leaks through gaps, unfortunately.

Storage

Insanely fast. The network can't catch up.

Video Card

Looks gorgeous, and performs gorgeously. I'm glad I picked this over the RTX2060.

Case

Simple but a beautiful case. However, the manual offered basically no support, so I had to google everything.

EDIT: That's what I thought at first. However, now I want to put a custom loop and realized that this case has practically no upgradability or fun to build in. There are far better cases out there with similar prices like the Meshify C or the Eclipse P400. This might not be an issue for non-enthusiasts, but I regret buying this. Most likely upgrading to a Define R6.

Power Supply

Can't tell anything till it caches on fire LOL.

UPDATE: I love how this thing stays quiet when not under load! I rarely see the fan kicking in. Only in games and rendering.

Operating System

Windows is windows, if you know what I mean.

Monitor

For the price, you get g-sync and up to 180hz. Can't complain.

Keyboard

Tactile and clicky. Maybe too loud though, for people with a family.

Mouse

Easy to hold, looks clean.

Why didn't you add the telephone cost into the build? I thought you said "entire setup" -1 for making such gruesome lie.

+1 worthy for that clean cable management
