After Two months of research and a lot of waffling I finally Built my very first pc. First I went nuts trying to decide between an AMD or an Intel build but in the end Intel won me over due to less power consumption and less heat. For GPU I went with Nvidia for the same reasons. I was going to build a red and black z97 pc then an all black x99 pc but after seeing this Black and White MSI z97s Krait edition mobo I new I would be painting some parts before I was done with this machine. I ordered most of my parts from Amazon due to my free 2 day shipping and the rest I found at best buy.
I am not an over clocker so I see no need to liquid cool my CPU and I have been happy with the stock cooler performance and size. The aftermarket ones are just so big and bulky. I got 32gb of RAM because i wanted to fill out the slots and decided I may as well go for it now so if the need for it ever arises I will be ready. I did Kind of steal my case painting scheme from This Post by Meithen. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/zDkTwP but I thought a white case would be too much for my taste and I felt his painting is perfect for my components. Please let me know how you think I did.
EDIT: Still not over clocking but I did install a Corsair H100i and I found some nice white cables at a good opened box price.
