So I knew I wanted to build a PC this year, so I decided to do as much research as I could. I learned how much each components were and how to spot out the good deals from the bad ones. One thing I highly recommend is to put r/buildapcsales on notifications through the reddit is fun app. I learned that micro center in-store deals are a helluva drug. I bought as much as I could during the dadsday ebay sale ($100 off GPU + MSI rebate). So my encouragement is to be patient and to observe, because the deals will eventually come! Hope you guys like my first build!

I think that top case fan should be moved to the back of the case so you get the best possible airflow, unless there are no fans at the front of the case, in that case, mount it at the front.

good build, really liking it!

Killer build ESPECIALLY for the price. I built about a year and half ago for about this price. I'm jealous at how much better this one is compared to mine.

Ah dude, I never thought of that for getting deals.... nice! Thanks. Also, I do believe you got the best 1080 deal in like a looooooooong time. I was tempted to do that deal even though I already had a 1070ti.

Your build is almost identical to mine and I also learned as much as I could starting from nearly zero knowledge.

Did you have to remove the shroud? I’m thinking of getting the same case and gpu but I’m not sure if it will fit unless I take off that cable manegment cover
