Hola! My name is Ron and im 24, i'm a first time builder. I'm coming from a 660sc 2390T i5 hp desktop.
My story starts around 4 years ago, I just began my job as a busser at a busy location downtown Santa fe New Mexico, I was partying alot. I was moving up the chain at my job, I was a bartender in one year. Thats when things got messy, i started drinking way too much, and it got to the point where i was waking up downing a pint of vodka to stop the shakes and tremors. I was gaming off and on, when i got on, i was drunk, all my gaming buddies on team speak hated when i was wasted doing clan wars lol(who wouldn't). but then time went on i stopped playing video games and drank more and more. One 2014 December, i couldn't take it any more. I was on the car with my girlfriend and told her i need help, and i couldn't stop drinking on my own. 4 days later i was on a plane to FL to a rehab. YAY. Got back a month later, and moved in with my mom. Got a job (not bartending) been paying her rent for the side apartment she has. I picked up the mouse and keyboard once again and started gaming. bought a 660sc and felt this awesome feeling of installing a new GPU and using it, thats when i knew i wanted to build a computer for my self. 6 months later ive saved up enough money to start buying :). I'm 9 months clean today. I still go to NA meetings. Ive met a whole group of sober people that are awesome. And now my life has done a 360 and is pretty great right now. :)
Great and solid, i have it at a stable 4.5ghz after 24 hour stress test. BRRROOOMMM
Beautiful, bios is a little funky but nothing to bad. I love the look of this mobo super clean!
Well, i kinda went on a game buying spree after completing my build lol. gtv5, witcher 3, mad max, metal gear solid, bf4, and sims 4 for light gaming while i watch movies on my tv. I'm left with around 150gb. So ill be grabbing another one of these. I didnt bother with a HDD because i'm only really going to have games on here. My old comp is for movies, storing my por.. i mean game play footage and all that pc filler stuff.
Holy moly this is fast. Super card. Havent started to OC this yet.
My mom called my pc a "show case" pc . Thanks to the case lol. super easy to work with. And being a first time build it was a perfect choice.
It worked :)
I got real lucky with this monitor, from all the problems people were having i was thinking i might have a RMA. But other then slight BLB its perfect in every way.
