Description

A pretty fun build I did with my girlfriend that is getting into pc gaming. This would be my first build without help and I think I did pretty well with it. I left the parts with room to upgrade unlike me where a friend picked me out a chipset that couldn't upgrade an further and am stuck with an A10-6800K. Anyways a fun first build.

Part Reviews

CPU

solid medium end processor with room to upgrade! It was a little more than what it was worth but it did come with its own CPU fan with thermal paste already on it (not disturbed).

CPU Cooler

This is an amazing price for what this brings to the table! although the installation is a bit tricky It looks good and performs well. Downsides are that it isn't that secure and wobbles a little bit but certain it won't fall.

Case

Absolutely beautiful case! There is amazing airflow and the fans show it off! there is a switch on the front. to have the fans at certain intervals, off (middle), low (towards the front), and High (towards the back). Overall amazing

Wireless Network Adapter

I have had this card for the longest time and it's still going strong. it went from my computer for 3 years and is now in my girlfriend's computer. REALLY recommend it!

Monitor

This monitor is pretty awesome with the easy to put together stand and sharp looks and quality, it just lacks the ports

Mouse

For a 26 dollar mouse, totally worth it. NO questions.

Could've got a G5400 which is $20 cheaper and has better speeds. Nice build though.
