Before I built this system I was given a prebuilt Asus tower with a i7-3770 and a GT 620. So what i did was replaced the gt 620 with a Pny gtx 1050ti from best buy. This made the system so much more capable. But it still felt bottle necked. Whether it was the cpu or 8gb of ram or the hdd I knew I should just build a new system around my gpu. So that's what I did... I bought all of the PC components shown on the list in one go. From my experience don't go through outlet pc. pay the extra 10 dollars or whatever and go through another retailer if you don't want to wait an extra week for the power supply. Also might have gone with a different case. The 275r is a good looking case but i question the cooling ability of it. Because of the closed front panel and the narrow intakes on the side of it. At the end of the day though Im really happy with the pc and my configuration. Upgrades coming soon will be 144hz monitor and then the gpu which i think will make for a more balanced setup. -Currently have my cpu Overclocked to 5.0 Ghz
Good case fore the price. My only gripe is cooling.
