First PC Build went extremely smoothly. After watching a lot of YouTube videos on how to build a PC in 2019 from the ground up, it was pretty straight forward. PC Part Picker has been probably one of the best tools to help me select the right compatible components. Great tool!
I went with a pretty high end configuration that should last me a little while without upgrades.
Overall pretty pleased. Only hiccup I ran into was installing Windows 10 Pro. The BIOS on the Asus motherboard required an update prior to installing the latest version of Windows.
I did not go for all the craze of the RGB colors that many on here are doing simply because I think it looks a bit tacky. I didn’t need my fans or ram to be RGB, which saved a little bit of money. Motherboard, cooler and case lights provide enough lighting. Also the build theme is very dark, in going with a matte black theme that looks sleek and modern.
The NZXT case is pretty awesome. It makes the build aesthetically pleasing with great cable management, lighting, and overall clean design.
Overall this was extremely fun to put together, the first real PC I put together since grade 10 back in 2002.
Anyone looking to build their own, I highly recommend checking out a few you tubers - just do a search for 2019 PC build and a few good ones will come up. LinusTechTips, BitWit, Paul’s Hardware, Austin Evans and JayzTwoCents are a few to name.
Do not love the RGB light output on this motherboard. Hardly visible and the white color looks more blue than anything. Otherwise it’s a decent motherboard. Stays cool and good for my mild overclocking needs.
Good RAM for the price.
Very happy with this SATA SSD thus far.
Beast of a GPU Asus RGB colors are disappointing. White color looks blueish.
Love this case for the price. Going to upgrade to the H510 Elite but this is a better price option.
Meh. It’s windows.
Love the picture!
Great keyboard. Love the arm rest.
Great mouse, but expensive. Could make it less plasticy.
Love these speakers. Had them since 2012.
