This is my first time assembling a PC. The idea behind the build was to put together a sort of all-round system, notably for gaming, console streaming/recording, and light editing. I was shooting for around a thousand US dollars to keep myself from going overboard for a first build.
Some things to note:
I originally used a single Corsair Vengeance 16gb 2400mhz stick, before upgrading to the current sticks a month later.
WD SATA M.2 is the boot drive, as I didn't have the 970 Evo until a month later.
Included the Optical Drive as I still like CDs.
Included Wifi Card, as I have consoles that could use the Ethernet connection but only have one Ethernet cord available.
Removed 3.5 inch Drive Cage as I have no use for it.
