After being a longtime PS2, PS3, and PS4 player, I have finally decided to make the switch to PC and man is it great! I was aiming for a moderate priced PC that can run most AAA games at 60fps+. After lots of research, I finally decided on these parts. All parts listed were ordered on Amazon.
Building this computer was honestly way easier than expected. It took about 2 hours with a small break in between. I was really nervous going in but after it was all done, I wanted to build another just for the fun of it! I will say though, cable management was a challenge in this case especially when it came to putting the back plate on. I ended up putting most of my unused cables in the empty hard drive tray to save space. Other than that it's not bad management from what I can tell. But it was very satisfying to see light up the first time I built it.
So far the PC has run great and I can't complain at all. I mainly play Overwatch and that runs at Ultra settings at around 120fps (capped). Other games such as CS:GO, Dirty Bomb, LOL, Battlefield 4 all run easily at max settings over 60fps. And even though I don't play it much, yes it runs Fortnite (Max everything except for post-processing and effects at ~100 fps)
My plans on upgrading in the future is probably a hard drive first and then some more fans to keep the system cooler under load.
Hope you guys enjoyed my build and maybe even try it out yourself. If you're looking for a fairly good priced PC build, this may be the one for you.
