First Build and First Gaming Computer

by paulkusibab


I wanted to make a PC that was VR ready, so I knew I'd have to splurge a bit. I'm extremely happy with the results, though, and I'm running games on higher graphics setting than ever before with no noticeable drop in framerate. It took quite some time to build even with the help of an expert friend, and I definitely have a newfound appreciation for the machine.

Awe, man......cable management. Unless you left the tag there for irony's sake. Real pretty otherwise.

It honestly was the only way I could have done it. The case was actually a drag to work with and there’s a few defective parts (namely case USB and microphone ports). I’ll do my best to try and find a way to get that cable out of the way.

You should be able to take that fan off of the cooler and rotate it, so that you have an easier time running the cable somewhere a little more hidden.

I really like your build, just a suggestion or so. I would've gotten the i5-9600k for like $255 ish. It has 6 cores which could really help you. Also a few more pictures would look really cool. Also on Linus tech Tip's youtube video you can get cd keys like Microsoft 10 pro for like $14 no scam. Overall nice build.

Thanks for the tip! My CPU was actually bought off a friend who had brand new one laying around.
