This is my first build in over 15 years. I had been a console gamer for the last decade and a lot has changed since then. I decided to make the switch after most of my friends had already done so. The goal with this build was to get something on par or better than my PS4 Pro and I couldn't be happier with the result. I finished it about a month ago and had been adding and upgrading pieces here and there. I mostly play AAA single player games and everything so far looks and runs way better at 1440 144 than with my PS4 Pro in 4k. The CPU, case, mobo, the 500GB EVO drive and 16GB of RAM were part of a Newegg bundle that saved me around $40. For my GPU, I wanted to keep my bugdet under $600. After some research, The MSI Gaming Z at $569 was cheaper than just about any 1080 card i could find at the time, and no regrets. In BF5 at 1440 and ultra settings, I'm able to average around 60 fps with medium ray tracing on.
