+ Total (United States):
Well here it is, my first computer build!
CPU: I started looking at the I3-6100 a long time ago but after Kaby lake came out, just like most people I switched to the Pentium because of the hyper-threading that was added.
Motherboard; I really like the look of this board. Its not flashy but it still looks good, it looks more stealthy than most boards and the two case fan headers really sold me on this one.
Ram: Goes withe the motherboard really well, the heat spreader looks pretty cool.
Storage: 1TB Western digital, have had a good experience with them in the past.
Case: I love Corsair cases, nice and simple and although this one is on the cheaper side it doesn't feel flimsy, I really like the window on the side too.
PSU: OK, now here is where everyone is going to be like "whoa, that is way too much!" "That's overkill!" I agree with you. The issue was when I put this PC together I found out that my original PSU (Corsair 450 CXM) was DOA... Well actually I didn't know it was until I ran to Best Buy and picked this up on a hunch. Since its only a difference of $7 I'll just send the Corsair back and consider this "Future proofing for down the line upgrades"
ODD: I was just going to get a blue ray reader but the writer was the same price.
Case fan: Knowing my case only came with one fan I knew I wanted to add a couple. Good looking fans.
Thanks for looking at my build and any comments or criticisms are welcome thank you!
