This is my first pc build and overall I am very pleased with it. I wanted something that could play games at 1080p on ultra without spending a unnecessarily large amount of money because I'm poor. Putting it all together was harder then i thought. I was so terrified of static discharge frying my components that I built it in my underpants :) I've overclocked my rx 470 to 1340mhz, for some reason anything above 1340mhz gives a fps decrease in unigine heaven, even with the voltage increased.
Best budget cpu you can buy. Under load it barley goes above 50 degrees and plays all games i have tried very well. 10/10 would put in the socket the wrong way again.
This is one of the cheapest B250M motherboards I could find. It comes with a m.2 drive slot which is nice. 10/10 would spend 30 bloody minuets putting the i/o shield in.
I bought this cheap on ebay, it works, that is good.
Everyone seems to get this hdd so it must be good. 1tb is enough for all my games and it is faster then the hdd in my 5 year old laptop so its good i guess. I had a bit of money left over so I bought a ssd for a boot drive. Its very fast, windows boots instantly.
I saw this rx 470 on sale so I bought it on a whim, I kinda wish I bought a rx 480 or gtx 1060 3gb instead because by the end of the build I had more money left over then i thought. Nevertheless this card has handled everything i thrown at it and should be fine for the foreseeable future.
This was the first part i bought about 2 months ago, it was very easy to build in and cable management was easy. The hard drive light is quite annoying though.
I was gonna buy a corsair cx power supply, but when i saw where it was ranked in psu tier lists i decided to get a good quality one, even if the 650w is overkill.
Unigine heaven score: 1229

Thanks for reading :)
Finally bought a desk and chair for my room so now I don't have to sit on the floor. Everything in my pc works fine and have had no problems so far.
