Description

One day, I woke up and decided to get a new computer. I threw this build together in an hour, and then bought all the parts. A week later, I built it

I use it mostly for gaming and working. It is a huge improvement over my old laptop, which scores 5% in the 'gaming' category at userbenchmark.com. I no longer have to go on low settings and turn off shadows. I chose a wifi card because I don't have ethernet in my room.

A lot of the components were bought on sale, and the monitor was bought used. That is why some of these prices are not normal.

Total build time: 1,5 hours

Part Reviews

CPU

It's great for gaming and overclocks well. I don't do much multi-core stuff, so I can't comment on that.

CPU Cooler

Quiet, effective, and low profile.

Motherboard

Can't say much, it was my first build. It was easy to find everything, and it works

Memory

It's RAM, and it runs at its advertised speed. Some people may have problems with the tall heatsink interfering with the CPU cooler.

Storage

Very fast and good temps, boot time is now negligible.

Storage

Works great and is quite fast, but is pretty noisy. It is to be expected of an industrial drive.

Video Card

Needs 6 stars. It is quiet, runs cool, and mine ran 2.1GHz out of the box. The LEDs are nice as well. It is really a 3 slot card, so it may not fit in some builds. It is also heavy, I built a Lego support to hold it up. Otherwise, it beats every other 1080 on the market. I haven't overclocked yet, but I will. It will be a beast when overclocked.

Case

Great cable management, looks good. You might look to add front fans if you are overclocking.

Power Supply

It's a power supply. As long as it works, it's good. 750W and 80+ gold certification for $50? Even better. Add semi modular cables, and this is the best for the price.

Operating System

Works, surprised that a $2.00 key was legit.

Wireless Network Adapter

Nice and fast. It's as fast as my Ethernet.

Monitor

Amazing, borderline perfect picture after calibration. Gsync is great and the 165hz refresh rate is super smooth. Very crisp picture as well, due to the QHD resolution. 1ms response time is nice.

Mouse

Works well, like the adjustable weight and the sniper button, it has helped me out often.

The photos kinda look like the ones you would find in a horror movie where they find the dead guys camera in the woods.

That thing takes up the whole desk. It's almost 2 feet long and weighs 12 pounds (it's pretty much an all-steel design).

It's doing great so far, I have my CPU at 4.5 GHz (first time overclocking), and it reaches 45 degrees max playing Battlefield 1 on ultra settings and WQHD @ 165 Hz. It also looks pretty nice, and doesn't interfere with my excessively tall RAM. It's also quiet, I can't hear it unless I am doing something demanding. Then it becomes a faint humming in the background.
