I finally got to build my PC, I'm 14, and could not get a job (most places hire at 15 or 16 despite 14 being legal), so I had to save for a few years. Luckily I was able to. Shortly after I built it, I was able to get my hands on some unexpected extra money, so if you see two keyboards and such, the better one replaced the old one.
So why did I want a PC? I had a laptop and an Xbox 360. Both pathetic weaklings incapable of proper gaming. $50 for online? What is this? And my laptop would overheat during League teamfights. So I set out for a PC. I saved money from where I could get it and finally managed to save up enough. I asked for early birthday money, and I saved any and all money from all holidays. I never bought anything I didn't absolutely need. So when I got the money I was exhilarated, I ordered parts after making a list, I asked for advice on parts, I searched any and all sales, I took loans from my parents. And finally, my parts came in.
Waiting for the last few was painful, but I assembled what I could. Unfortunately, it wouldn't power on. At all. I was terrified, could my PSU be faulty? Did I fry my motherboard with ESD? Did my CPU have a damaged pin? This was my first build, so I assumed the worst, eventually my dad noticed my 24 pin was loose (oops) and put it in correctly. It worked. Then when I started it up I got an error message telling me I had no HDD. I furiously rewired it and despite double checking that everything was right the first time, somehow this fixed it.
So I did standard setup, boosted my RAM up to the promised speed with no issues, and installed my stuff. I use this PC for gaming and schoolwork. So far I have yet to be dissapointed in any part of my PC. For peripherals I initially used a Cooler Master devastator and my old mouse. After finding a sale on the G810 (basically $80 USD) I bought it and replaced my Devastator. The mouse is soon to be replaced and I'll update the build when it is. I also upgraded my monitor and sold the old one for a low price to my brother to help with his build.
UPDATE: Found a G203 for 40% off and am now using it as my new mouse
4 cores at that price is incredible, and it forced Intel to match it too. Good overclocking from what I've read and an incredible stock cooler
Nice, but red accents don't add much, even to a red build, they just kind of irritate me. Durable construction however and RGB is nice, even if the software is lacking.
Before RAM prices ballooned this was cheap, fast RAM with wide compatibility, it's overpriced now but if you find it at proper pricing I'd recommend.
What do you expect? It's an HDD for a good price.
Incredible card. Runs without a 6 pin, and does so quietly. Two fans is good for temps, I'd spend the extra money over the SC. EVGA makes great cards.
Stunning case, nice add ins, RGB, incredible, and I mean incredible cable managing, even better than the S340. Great price and incredible looks. At this price point there is no other case.
It's a PSU. Modular and I've yet to fear it exploding.
Nice monitor, uses HDMI and has a good screen for a TN panel. Great at the price. Very nice speakers too, but the base doesn't feel stable.
Incredible monitor, nice display, comes with good color out the box, stable feet, slim design and IPS. Freesync is nice as well. I'd recommend it.
I love the switches, they are perfect for gaming and the illumination looks better than Razer and Corsair's offerings. Good software, no bugs, but it could use some more features.
This switch actuates with the force of a cherry mx red, but it actuates .5 mm before it, which is better for gaming, Also has a little tactile bump, which is just enough to be noticed, but not enough to become irritating or distracting. I'd recommend if you find it on sale.
Nice keyboard, but the fact you use scroll lock to toggle the lights is dumb. Mouse is decent, but I'd choose not to use it. Overall it's a great cheap combo, and the mecha membranes are way better than standard membranes.
Cheap, basic lighting, and high DPI, especially for when it was released, Sadly discontinued, but it's comfortable and has decent software. Also has some macro keys. A bit heavy though
This mouse is amazing. I have small hands so it fits my hands perfectly. It's got good button tensioning and a satisfying click too. The sensor is on par with PMW3366 except when it comes to DPI. This mouse will not spin out. RGB looks great and syncs with my keyboard perfectly
Also the firmware was recently updated. This mouse can now function at 8000 DPI
Got this for $5 with a rebate. Stable signal.
You get what you pay for, and this is comfortable, has decent quality and a good mic. Worth more to be honest.
