Description

This Build is a successor to my previous build. (Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/9wpbt6) Being older and having a job with steady, good income I was definitely able to achieve what I had wanted in my build, which was a smooth 1080p, 144hz gaming experience, with also the ability to run vr smooth with my Oculus Rift. This build turned out way better than i had imagined, and went a lot smoother after learning more experience building pc's.

Part Reviews

CPU

This CPU kicks ***. definitely worth the money with a mobo paired at microcenter. I believe I had paid about 250 USD for the mobo and the CPU Combined.

Motherboard

Has everything i wanted, good heatsinks to cool the VRM. The RGB was a bonus.

Memory

Does the job, wish i could've gotten higher clock speed, but wasn't willing to pay 300+ for some ram.

Storage

Holy moly a SSD Does make a difference in booting. I think i can never go back!

Storage

Pulled from old build, Good and reliable for games and video content.

Video Card

This part came from the old build as i progressively upgraded the old one. i got this in July 2016 (I believe) so i didn't pay an arm and a leg for this one.

Case

Fell IN LOVE with this case since it was announced. Surprisingly really good cable management too.

Power Supply

Modular PSU's are soooo nice. this was a must for this build and space i had to work with.

Operating System

still wish it was 7 but oh well.

Monitor

This was from the old build before i could push 144hz so it works great as a second monitor.

Monitor

I think ill never go back to 60hz gaming. It is so buttery smooth and with Freesync, it makes sure i never have a bad gaming experience. i got this for 200 dollars at microcenter shortly after Christmas.

Keyboard

This is nice. What can i say about it?

Mouse

Love this mouse, not too many buttons, not too little. just right in my hand.

Headphones

Pretty good. Got off hardwareswap for 135 bucks.

Speakers

These speakers bang! has a dedicated sub and two speakers. these are as good as you can get for 25 dollar speakers. good for music and videos.
