My goal was to build a black and blue themed PC that looked slick, and to run CS:GO smoothly for a few years. Any ideas thoughts, ideas or recommendations on future purchases would be highly appreciated. Built to last me a while on CS:GO, and probably to enjoy a little bit of BF1. Yeah, I probably spent a little too much on peripherals, don't give me crap about it. <3

;) 1+ For being an Aussie. Nice mouse, I have it. Make sure you spend some time fiddling with the magnets as you can make it a lot better, in both feels and gaming. [I Have Duck Cancer] (http://Notavirus.com)
