Description

I plan on using this PC primarily for gaming, but i will also use it for school and web surfing. When I was searching for parts to build this PC I wanted something that was somewhat on a budget but not so cheap that it was missing things that i want. This is my first PC build that i have done alone (I've built one with my dad before). It was a lot of fun building it and it was very satisfying to turn on the computer and have everything work. It's gives you a sense of accomplishment. I plan on building many more computers in the future because it's just so fun and it has developed into a hobby of mine. To anyone who is thinking of building a PC I would highly recommend it because it is a great learning experience and very fun at the same time.

Looks good to me! Some people may say to do some cable management, but I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you really want the inside to look organized. You will see no difference in performance or temperatures by routing the cables behind the motherboard. I also think you did a good job picking the parts for a balanced system.

Anyways, GO PLAY GAMES!!!!

P.S. Don't forget to do your school work. It's probably a little more important than gaming ; )

the good thing is the build is VR Ready

VR builds tanked in price in such a short amount of time. When the oculus first came out, VR builds were at least 1500 bucks.

To stress test your GPU for OC and Temp testing you can use the Heaven Benchmark. Its free.

Love it.
