This will not be my first build, but it will be my first personal build, that's for me. It's my first time picking parts. This wouldn't be possible without the help of my mom. This build was only supposed to be $1000, but since my mother won 20 G's at the casino, she gave me a little more. <3 you mommy! XD
(Side note: I did buy the H100i and HDD my self.)
I'll be using this PC for mainly gaming and programming
CPU- I've choosen the i5-4670k for its overclocking and wanting the newest architecture
MOBO - I've been an Asus fan for a long time and the ROG mobo just looked awesome and I really wish it wasn't red, i'm more of a blue guy.
SDD - I'll be putting just the OS and possibly some games on too it.
HDD - just a plain WD Black series hard drive
GPU - I've spent more time on this any any other part. I wanted to get a GPU that could run BF4 and TitanFall on high settings and any up coming games. I also got WatchDogs for free when I purchased it.
PSU - I like Corsair products, built good and reliable. I wanted to get a Full Modular PSU, but the prices on those are real high. So i settled for a Semi-Modular 600W more than enough to run this PC.
Keyboard - I just LOVE this Keyboard its amazing with the Cherry MX Blue switches, built tough and looks amazing.
Mouse - To me mouses are mouses, but i wanted one that looked cool and felt good in my hands so i went with the Corsair M65.
Monitor - Went with the 24" Asus an upgrade from my HP 20" that only supports VGA.
Case - NZXT H440 this case looks cool and clean. At first i was going to go with the Corsair 600r (i think thats what it's called).
For the OS i'll be booting via USB(who needs optical drives anyways). I got the OS for free from the college I was attending, since all IT students were partnered with Microsoft through the school, allowing us to download any Microsoft software for free.
But in case that i do need an optical drive, which i will to install Visual Studio 2013, ill use the one in my other computer.
