I've been wanting to build a PC for a while, now but I saved up some money and was finally able to take the plunge. Seeing as my PS4 is the main machine for AAA titles, I wanted something that could handle games like Minecraft, Cities: Skylines, CS: GO, and a handful of other things- Autodesk Inventor -but without breaking the bank.
I would have gone for an i5 had money not been an issue, but this little CPU gets the job done.
I chose the mobo because I wanted something mini and with 3.0 USB ports. I had zero problems installing the other parts to it and had enjoyed this purchase thus far.
I chose this RAM because there was a promo on Newegg with the MSI H110i Pro mobo that I purchased. I got a great deal and for a great product. Will probably upgrade to 16GB in the future.
This was the cheapest 120GB SSD I could find at the time. It was easy to install, recognized immediately, and I've had no problems with it as of now. Nice and speedy.
I was going to go for a 1060 3GB, but then I heard that Nvidia were releasing yet another card. I saw the manufacturer stats and thought I could wait a few days... so I did. I'm glad that I did. This card packs a serious punch for its price. It fit what I need to a T - 1080p gaming on a budget (and at a compact size). You may have to turn the settings down for some games, but coming from a laptop, I'm happy to run anything on medium or higher.
I love this case so much. I've chosen a lot of cases for this build over the months, but I settled on this mini-ITX tower because of space and portability. It looks neat and everything fits inside nicely. Easy to take apart and put back together with room for upgrades.

It's getting the job done, but for $8, I can't really complain about speed.
I was gifted this keyboard. I enjoy it very much. I wish that I could have gotten the MX Blues, but my housemates would murder me. I love the sounds, build, and how customizable Corsair keyboards are.
