This is my very first build and I'm very proud of it. I've started gathering my parts back in March, and now it's definitive. I needed a new computer and my goal was playing esports games at 1080p and some heavier ones (Rise of Tomb Raider, occasionally). I accomplished my goal, with some aesthetics aswell.
CPU & Cooler - This processor is enough to fulfill my daily usage. It comes from a previous build with a restricted budget, it works very good with no issues (I don't plan to overclock). I also got myself the NZXT Kraken liquid cooler since it's a beauty. It's really helping me with high temps.
Motherboard - I decided that I wanted a clean black & white motherboard (it even has white backlight) It's perfect and solved the lack of fans connectors I had before.
Ram - Kinda basic ram, the cheapest I found and they work fine. I couldn't afford the RGB versions for double the price because it's not worth it.
Storage - First time with a SSD and this Samsung is perfect.
Case - I think NZXT and Phanteks have the best looking cases. I really wanted a full glass window since the plexi ones are crap. It's surprisingly compact and I love it!
Power Supply - I first had a Corsair VS550 and after 1 week I heard a very loud noise coming from it, even without playing. It disappeared but I gave it to my dad. I picked up another PSU, a CX450 and it immediately started the same annoying noise. I've after realized that low budget Corsair PSU suffer from extreme coil whine. NEVER AGAIN. At last I decided to buy a Seasonic S12II 520W for almost the same price, and it's just perfect.
GPU - I picked the cheapest 1060 model I found online. Works fine.
Others - I bought white cord cables cause I hate the basic ones, an RGB strip light and put it behind the monitor. The other purple LED strips inside the case are in the right side. I even got a new keyboard and mouse and I love the colors.
I used a Canon EOS 1100D and my Iphone 6S to take these pictures.
