Description

Hi this is my first PC and build ever. I wanted to get away from consoles and ascend to the master race ! So figured the best way to do that was build my very own PC, And go from there. I will tell you its and absolute blast building a PC and watching everything come to life. I had no hiccups along the way everything worked first try. I have no overclocked this system yet but I intend on doing that at some point. The only things I wish i did different are the case because the air flow is kinda lacking and the memory i bought the Intel version instead of AMD and had to RMA it as it wont post at 3200 i can only get it to 2933. Other then that it was smooth sailing. I hope everyone likes my build and if the haven't built a PC yet and are nervous dont worry its really easy!

I like the set up, but a little to much lighting for me I take the minimalist approach thou. Nice monitor but I would of gone curved for like a MSI MAGCQ27. But you got your moneys worth. I will be posting my new build to come.

Looks awesome! Good ol' red/black theme makes it look great and, by the part list, looks like it performs great as well. In future, (and I mean this trying to help: I have no doubt that you've done your research, because it shows!) you could cut down on cost without sacrificing performance by doing a few things.

The amount of RAM (32GB) looks a little excessive. I would personally run a maximum of 16 Gigabytes, since for about 99% of applications, the computer doesn't even use that much. Again, I have no clue as to what programs you're running on your PC. Another area where you could cut cost is in the Monitor. While Dell is a great company (don't get me wrong) and very reliable, the market offers many monitors that run 4K resolution at a lower price point. (I also acknowledge that a good number of monitors these days have especially ugly stands, so options are limited) I also noticed that you are running an SSD/HDD combo for (I would presume) running Windows+critical programs and bulk storage, respectively. I would reccomend using an NVMe M.2 SSD instead, since they can be found for cheaper and have higher data transfer speeds. If ~30GB per second sounds appealing, then an M.2 SSD is for you :)

I was brought to this page by clicking on "First Gaming PC and build ever", and I am impressed! Everything looks great synched up with cables, lights and fans. I hope that you can use these tips in future with other builds, or that you can help your friends out whenever they decide to build.

Welcome to the Master Race!

The ram is for adobe premiere video editing for my gf. She works for our local news paper. and does graphic designing and video editing. I read some place that more ram is the route i wanna go but the main goal of the pc was for me gaming and maybe some day streaming/Youtube. Any way I own it now LOL.

I would argue about NVMe relevance here (ikr it's your proposal for him), but I'll answer with two sentences to avoid anti-storage boycott ****. NVMe will only benefit him, if he would install large storage games (50-60 GBs, below not really), rendering some heavy textures or transferring other colossal sized files, SATA is plenty for boot ups (yeah NVMe cuts 2-3 seconds, but time flies so quick you've gotta be time wizard to catch up to it or run synthetic benchmarks so in average user's eyes the difference is meaningless) and game loading times (again, NVMe cuts 3-5 secs at max, but user is still paying the 'premium'). I do agree the affordability is there like SX8200, EX920, the 'infamous' 660p besides MLC's WD Black and Samsung Evos. Myself running 970 Pros btw, but only for UE4 4K textures as these can get really, really freaking hefty. So yeah, nothing against NVMe except for the possibly underutilized fast storage.
