This is my first PC that I have built. I wanted it too look good and perform well and I believe I achieved that through the components I have choosen. The NZXT S340 was a dream to build in, lots of room and great spaces for cable management. I will be utilizing this PC for gaming at the 1080p level, that is why I choose the MSI RX480 4 GB gaming X, strong card, good cooling, just what I need. Last I went with the i5 7500 because it was only $10 more than the i5 6500 at the time so I thought "hey" little extra cash for more performance, why not. Very proud of my first build, hope you all don't mind the non-stock cooler, I did it purely for looks as I know I will be doing no overclocking with this build, don't have full peripherals yet so all I know right now is that everything works when I turn it on, still have to install OS and all the other fun software thing we all enjoy, but looking forward to some real PC gaming action. Also I will be looking to upgrade to Ryzen and Vega during the holidays, can't wait! Ya'll let me know what you think, thank you.
Great CPU for the price, stays cool under load (58C). If wanting to put together a non-OC build, this is the chip to do it with, plenty fast for gaming and streaming, enough said.
Cheap, well made, looks great and does the job. Thank you CRYORIG, awesome cooler.
If your rockin' 7th gen. Kabylake non-OC CPU's this is a great place to start. Plenty of options for expansion, good amount of USB 3.0 ports, 4 DIMM slots with DDR4 boost to 2400, easy click BIOS to work with, M.2 slots, 4 system fan headers (PWM 4-pin), 6 SATA ports, and due to its black and grey color scheme can fit with any color build you want, so don't be afraid to display this MoBo in a window!
There is no picture, but has a great black and red color scheme for those of you who like black and red builds. RAM works like it should.
Fast, cheap, can't go wrong, I should have gone bigger though, lol.
Feels like a high quality case, very clean looking, and cable management is easy. Plenty of room for fans and had great cooling, dream to build in, highly recommend.
EVGA,Semi Modular and 850W for a little over $70, enough said. Runs nice and quiet too.
Great fans, lighting is a bit dim but looks sharp, pushes good air and stays dead quiet.
I love this monitor! 144 HZ, Freesync, and 1080p for $210, it is hard to beat this deal. The monitor is perfect for a black and red theme. You can adjust height, tilt and angle. Has Display port and HDMI. It also comes with both display port and HDMI cables!!!! It does come out of the box very bright, but that can be adjusted no problem, and you do get a bit of washed out colors due to it being TN, but you can tweak the colors a bit. This thing runs well with the RX 480, but be sure to have the latest drivers because there will be flickering when placing the monitor at 144hz, I found out I did not have the latest crimson drivers, but the issue was fixed as soon as I loaded them. I play BF1, Shadow of Mordor, and Titan Fall 2 all at max settings, and get over 90 FPS on each, which looks buttery smooth with this monitor. No dead pixel issues at all, this monitor is a great buy.
Just, wow, this mouse offer so much for a super cheap price, without feeling cheap as well. RGB lighting, over 16,000 DPI, custom settings, easy to use software really grippy. Don't know why anyone would spend $50 on a mouse that offers half as much as this one does. Hats off to Reddragon.
Great headset, the Mic. sound so friggin' good, definitely the best part of this headset. Really light without feeling too cheap or breakable (time will tell). Sounds great, but you do get that echo when the virtual 7.1 is activated, I just don't use it because I can hear things coming from different directions just fine without it. I do like the fact that the little LED Dragons on the earpieces flash along with whatever sounds are currently playing. Also very comfortable, can play hours with no signs of soreness. Software sucks though, and is a pain to install. Otherwise I would definitely recommend.
