Description

Hello everybody this is my first ever build and I am really proud of it, feel free to leave questions, comments, suggestions, or whatever.

I am using this computer for basic video editing, music recording, livestreaming, schoolwork, steam games, and internet browsing, all the usual stuff.

Thanks for reading and I definitely recommend building your own computer!

(Update) I have done some cable management and just cleaned up the inside a bit so it looks better now. I have to add some pictures soon. Ordered new fans and an LED strip for Christmas. I might try to put the cooler master cooler back on because the stock cooler is so loud.

Please, never call a build a "beast" because it can run Minecraft at 60 FPS on high settings.

Yeah I know, but it is just a lot better than any computer I have ever had. If it is such a big deal then I will change the name.

I think people are more picky about the fact that it's overused. You could just make up new words, no one would be the wiser ;)

I wouldn't exactly call it a beast but ok, lol. You could have gotten a more powerful build for 1k but it's pretty good nonetheless. Also, you might want to add in an SSD later, it'll load chunks WAY faster in minecraft.

Yeah I'm planning on getting an ssd

If he didn't have to buy windows, a monitor, and peripherals too, then sure $1k would be way too much. With all of the stuff he bought though, I don't think he really over-payed THAT much.

I feel like you could have gotten a bit more value for this much money

Yeah I realize that now, I should have waited for better deals on parts, but lesson learned and I'll know for the future.

If you want to get the most out of your pc you should buy cheap peripherals and buy like a better gpu or cpu and when you save up some more money then buy better peripherals in my opinion

Well I really needed a new keyboard and headset, and I had already bought the mouse at bestbuy with a giftcard.

Good build and part choices. Money seems fairly spread out to me.

Great build for it being your first. 1k seems intimidating but since you had to buy your monitor, OS, and other peripherals the actual system only cost about $600 which is a great budget that I think you did a good job with. +1 and keep building!

Cable management isnt great, id get some cable ties from ebay, you can buy like 100 in a pack for a couple of quid and they will make a massive difference

Yeah I have to work on cable management, the case came with a bunch of cable ties.

How much fps do you get on minecraft when recording or livestreaming and on wich settings?

I would recommend upgrading to a better power supply eventually (800W or so) and then getting a 290 or 290x along with a better amd cpu (fx 9590 maybe?) Just for whenever you decide to upgrade. Oh and yeah, it's a great build for your first, but a bit of research gets you a long way, here is a build that's slightly more powerful that yours for about 150 less. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xkzvD3

Oh wow that's really nice, I was in a rush to get the parts so I didn't think about researching more :(

Hopefully I'll be able to make those upgrades soon.

Just wanted to say he won't get very far with that CPU since you have to overclock it to do anything good... And you didn't add a CPU cooler.
