First time build- Would love some feedback!


Jan 30, 2017
Hey guys, first time building a pc here. I plan on using it for gaming, bf1, fo4, borderlands, farcry etc at high-ultra settings, as well as ms office, and some gis mapping. I've set it up via pcpartpicker, so everything's compatible with each other. At this point I have looked around quite a bit and think this is the ideal setup. I would love any feedback, if anybody has better recommendations for parts or what have you. Here's pretty much my final draft. Thanks for your thoughts.
