I'm 17 and i decided to build this PC because i couldn't play Forza horizon 3 on my old gtx 750 ti and because i wanted to upgrade in 1440p for the future. I also needed a heater for winter ;)
CPU : I already had the CPU in my old system and I just decided to keep it because I was on a tight budget (800$ CAD). I'll definitely change for Zen if it's decent or i'll go for an intel i5. The CPU cooler does it's job. Keeps my fx-8350 overclocked at 4.4Ghz at around 60° C on AIDA 64 stress test.
Motherboard : Looked really nice, was decently cheap, nothing more to say it works.
Memory : I got those 2 sticks of 8gb 2133Mhz for cheaper than i would have paid for the 1600 or the 1866. They are actualy clocked at 1866 in my PC but they were 20 $ cheaper than the 1600 so i just picked them up. They are real nice looking too.
SSD : Bought it from my dad. He wanted a 500 gb so he bought a mushkin eco3 480gb for 134.99$ and he sold me this one for 35.00$. Ireally jsut wanted it for the fast booting of windows.
HDD : I already had this one in my old PC. I'm not sure if it's a barracuda. i'ts got two partitions of 500gb so I really don't know.
GPU : This one was a steal. Got it for 359.99$ and the base price was 500.00$. I bought it on the first day of newegg's black friday deals. Runs at 75° C which is great since winter is coming and I live in Canada. Runs everything I trow at it in 1080P and i'm waiting for christmas to buy a 1440p monitor. I know some people say this card has some coil whine but personaly mine has none. I downvolted it 48mv just cause I was a little short on wattage.
Case : This one was another steal i paid 29.99$ and the base price was 79.99$. I bought it the same day I bought my GPU. The only con is that it has not front dust filter.
PSU : I bought the power supply before everything else so thats the only reason i got the 650W variant. On power I feel like i'm really cutting the edge, but hey I got the GPU for really cheap can't argue with that.
Fans : Near silent, I needed three and the one in my dad's pc broke like 2 days before I bought these.
Overall I'm really happy with this build, everything worked, and now i can brag to my friends that have ****** PCs until they remind me the price it cost.
