My New PC Build!


Minecraft Username
So I planned to build a PC to escape my dad's jungle of work documents and my sister's k pop boyband pictures.
I had a really old 2007 computer used between my whole family, I have to say it held together very well for the past 8 years and still at least manages to run Minecraft at 30 fps lol.
My plan was originally to just get the PC and just use some of the old peripherals from home but that didn't end up being the case.
My build is basically a sister build of Whosurdaddylol's it's quite similar with just a few steps to the side.
After many modifications from many different people's opinions and my own, I have finally put together a final list of parts and have gotten my baby boy built and delivered to me and I have to say, I'm in love with it.

Motherboard: ASUS Z97-K Intel Z97 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
CPU: Intel Haswell Core i5 4690 3.50Ghz 6MB LGA1150

Windows Version: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-Bit (Full Version) - OEM
Lighting: NZXT Sleeved LED Kit (Blue) 2 Metre
Total Cost = $1,889.75

My original budget for just the PC was about $1600 ._.
I planned to pay for it by myself as a way to bribe my parents into letting me get it but they ended up paying for it either way.
Then I decided I would pay for some new peripherals to go with my new PC.

Monitor: Samsung 27" Series 3 D390 Monitor LS27D390HS = $389
Keyboard: Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches = $281.15
Mouse: G402 Hyperion Fury FPS Gaming Mouse = $58
Mouse Pad: Razer Goliathus Speed Edition 215mm x 270mm = $18
Total Cost = $746.15

Turns out my dad paid for the monitor and mouse for me so I hardly spent much on anything ._.
FPS on Minecraft ranges from 200 - 800 :D
PC boot up time is about 10 seconds.

Overall Cost = $2635.90
