My last build was in 2014 and I remember it very well, I sold that pc 2017 and I've been without a gaming pc since then. I could've spent more and built an even better computer but I just wanted to spend as much as I had to meet my requirements. The whole build with monitor, mouse, keyboard and windows ended up at around 11000 SEK (approx 1100 dollars). Since I have a little bit of previous experience of pc building and have watched youtube the build went very smooth. I had some problems as accidentaly dropping a screwdriver on the motherboard but it doesn't seem to have caused any damage, I also put the m.2 drive in without the stand off but then fixed my mistake. My front fan cable was not long enough to reach the fan header on my motherboard so I went and got a 10cm 2 to 1 cable and zip tied the unused header, might come to use later on. I also had some trouble fitting the gpu but then realized there was some kind of bracket that had to be moved then put back to place, fitting the gpu i also scratched against the mobo a little bit but it does not seem to have caused anything, I do believe there needs to be some serious damage to actually break the motherboard. I am very happy with the result and the computer runs fantastic, I'm only a little annoyed by a little rattle from the rear fan I believe but I don't hear it once i put my headphones on. As soon as the build was finished I installed windows, updated gpu drivers and got driver booster to help me update some other drivers. I also put my memory to xmp profile 2 running at 2933mhz. Bad image quality because I just sent the photos through messenger and saved them on my computer.
