This is my very first PC build, which I have built for gaming. I will mainly be playing FPS games such as PUBG and Battlefield, but now that I am in the PC realm with such a large catalog of games, who knows what I might start to enjoy. Some parts shown I paid more for, but most I was able to find for a little to a lot less. I purchased my GPU for $709CDN on Amazon which I was extremely happy with at the time as it had come down a lot from the inflated price it had been, but now unfortunately it is $50 cheaper just two days after I completed my build. I think that was the only L I took though.
So far I've been able to try out CS:GO, PUBG, and Battlefield 1 on a 60HZ 1080p 27" TV (upgrading eventually to a 144hz monitor) I tracked my FPS using Geforce Experience. In CS:GO playing offline with bots (because I'm trash at mouse and keyboard) I was getting 180-220FPS on max settings. PUBG I was getting 90-120 FPS on max settings. Runs much better than Xbox LOL. I'm a noob when it comes to temperatures as well as most things PC but after playing PUBG for an hour on max settings my CPU temp in AI suite was 42deg celcius. Is that a reasonable temperature? Is AI Suite accurate for measuring temperature?
All in all I am extremely happy with the final result of my PC as well as the performance so far. Let me know how you think I did!
If anyone has any suggestions for settings or programs (such as for monitoring FPS/Temperature) or for video/audio optimization, or just critiquing anything I've said, I would love to learn. Thanks!
Also any mouse and keyboard tips would be great because... yikes.
EDIT: It seems that AI Suite quite understated my CPU temp. After playing CS:GO on max settings for an hour, MSI Afterburner showed a peak of 64deg celcius.
