This is my first custom build. Putting it together was fun and nerve racking at the same time... I'm pretty happy with the outcome, though!
I'm a web application engineer who does some UX/UI and graphic design work along with occasional video editing. I also like playing FPS, shooter/looter, RPG, and racing games, so I wanted to build a PC that could handle everything I throw at it.
I may have gone a little overboard on a few components... However, I'd rather have more than enough of everything than not enough of anything, and I don't mind spending a little more for aesthetics as long as the performance is good, too.
The next step up will be a custom water loop, but I'll probably wait until the next era of CPUs/GPUs are released since I'll need new water blocks anyway.
