Once I knew that I wanted to build a PC I soon was overcome by the many options I had before me. Thankfully with the help from r/buildapc and this wonderful site I made something I can be proud of! This is my gaming machine, it is used for other general tasks but the direction of this build was purely gaming. I wanted longevity so I knew I had to go with Intel. I planned to overclock and Crossfire/SLI in the future so I settled with the MSI Gaming 5 Motherboard. The rest of the build was based on what had the best reviews/performance for the price. Assembling all the parts was incredibly easy (especially for a first build) and thankfully I didn't encounter any DOA parts. I had plenty of room to work with thanks to NZXT's wonderful H440. I initially had the black/red case but soon painted it black/black. I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase. I will enjoy this for years to come!
I couldn't ask for anything better. Impeccable performance!
This baby is quite amazing. It looks wonderful and performs great as well. It took my temps from 75+ under load with stock cooler to 55. Nothing to complain about here.
2 words... Bad ***! Cant beat the price/performance. The looks are what make it a home run!
Does what it needs to do. Worth the buy.
Wonderful card for the price. Hard to beat MSI Twin Frozr 280 for $200. Only downside is the locked core voltage. Limits the overclocking potential. Still able to get excellent performance from it.
Just wow. This case is a must have for any mid tower. The looks are so sexy!
Great PSU! High quality parts and black sleeved cables are great.
