So after months of deciding if I should buy a PS4 (shock horror) to satisfy my casual gaming needs and also get myself a new mid-high range laptop for intense work use and a bit of video editing, I came to the conclusion that for the same money I would spend on both I could build myself a pretty high spec custom-built PC that would outperform both the latter options.
Me being me and not looking to do things by half, I decided to go in at the deep end and consciously build myself an overkill PC for my needs. I set out to find some of the more expensive internal components I could get thinking 'eh why not!'
My Corsair 110i GT is due to arrive in 10 days and not wanting to wait for international shipping, to tide me over until it gets here I have opted to get what seems the best Air cooled unit in terms of performance & price...a Cooler Master 212 EVO.
Also my GALAX GTX 980 HOF is not actually in that my system at the minute, this will be delivered in the coming weeks. I will update pictures when both these parts arrive :)
With my "Failing to prepare, is preparing to fail" mentality, my journey began with absolutely zero experience with PC hardware or software. I Started googling the bare basics 'How to build your own custom PC'. As I went about trawling through hundreds of threads, picking up and sponging in as much information as I could, I began building my first PC and this is results.
Please feel free to ask any questions you wish or even if you think you have a way that I may be able to set this up or make any modifications to this better my system, please please comment and let me know your opinions or thoughts.
Update (29/07/15) : GTX 980 'Hall Of Fame' Delivery arrived! Added pictures. This thing is BEAST!
