This was my first build. I needed an upgrade from my old 2600k CPU that was bottle necking my GPU and, it works very well high quality, frames are great, and I can game and stream perfectly fine. After this change on the game Rainbow Six Siege I get an average of around 220 FPS, around 80 FPS higher.

CPU: I chose the 3600 due to the cost to performance being truly great, as well many great reviews. I chose this over the intel i5-9600k due to the fact it has many more threads and the performance in games weren't much different.

CPU Cooler: It's very great aesthetically and is keeping my CPU at very great temperatures. Easy installation, and works very effectively.

Motherboard: I was a bit lenient on getting this MOBO, but the fact that it was 40 dollars off at the time and had a decent VRM on the cheap side (same as Pro4) it was a no brainer. Otherwise I would have got the ASUS Tuf for it's great VRM. Although in the future if I get a new CPU I'd rather get a new MOBO for more updated bios etc.

Memory: For the cost it was great, am running it on XMP at 3000 mhz. A big change from my previous 8gb build.

SSD: It was on sale for 30 dollars, it was easy installation, known to work well. It for sure does work great, as well with the extra space (my old one was 256 GB) I can install all my games onto it.

Video Card: I had bought this a while ago to run with my old pc. It works great, still modern, and allows me to run 1080 144hz

Case: It was between a Phanteks p350x or this. I had chosen this due to the fact it was much larger, and came with 2 200mm fans that I'd run on DC. It works great, and in the future when I upgrade upon it, it will have enough space for my needs and cooling.

Power Supply: At Canadacomputers it was $25 off, I bought it and so far it works great. Right now it may be overkill for amount of Watts, but in the future I will never have to worry about it.
