I have been wanting to build a PC for a few years now, and I finally got around to doing it. I have been gaming on my surface book with a dedicated GPU but that just wasn't cutting it, and newer games like DOOM won't even start on that, so I finally did it. I have a thing for Corsair, and while I know people will say their parts are overpriced, I like the aesthetic and it's kind of an OCD thing to have all the parts by the same brand. Plus they have outstanding quality and great customer service and warranties, so its not like my money is being wasted.
I didn't exactly have a budget for this build, I just wanted to be able to game at max settings on 1440p (whenever I can actually afford a 1440p monitor) and I didn't feel like paying a lot extra for a 1080 so I stuck with the 1070. I am a software developer and need some processor horsepower so I went for the i7-6700k, which is more than enough for 1440p gaming. I probably could benefit from more cores in the future, but if that ever becomes necessary I can upgrade when I need it and at the time of building couldn't justify spending more for now while I'm still in college.
Performance-wise, this thing is a beast. It can easily max anything with 200+ FPS at 1080p, and I imagine it will also work very well for 1440p. The MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Sea Hawk X is amazing and allows me to keep the thermals on my GPU running constantly below 50 degrees, even at an overclock where I reach clocks of about 2,150 MHz boost clock. My CPU is overclocked at 4.8 GHz and rarely goes above 50 degrees as well, but I could probably push it a little further in the future if it ever feels too slow. The case is amazing to work with and looks great, and while right now the build is mostly black and white, I want to get some blue fans and LEDs to make it a white/blue color scheme. Overall I have no negative things to say about any of the parts chosen, and would totally recommend any of them to anybody looking to build or upgrade a PC. In the future I plan on buying a 1440p monitor and using my current monitor as a peripheral monitor, as well as buying a custom Xbox One controller and customizing it to be white and blue to match my PC.
Side Note: the motherboard is listed as really cheap because I bought it for like $100.00 off on Newegg as open-box, and was only missing one unnecessary part, so I would also recommend that to anybody trying to buy an expensive part for a cheaper price.
