Backstory: Won a corsair RGB keyboard in the OCC contest, wife called dibs, built her a new computer to go with it  :teehee:

 

She's into watching/streaming on Twitch, retro gaming, The Sims, FFVII, Resident Evil and whatnot. So it's not mega powerful but more than enough for the games she's into. She first tried a new Dell laptop (which is for sale BTW) with the current gen i5 but it couldn't handle gaming and streaming at the same time. So now, her PC is much newer than mine but my Sandy Bridge machine is still kicking butt (though I am very tempted to build something new).

 

I lent her a few things for this build; including the game controllers and HDD. Not including those parts and the keyboard prize, the build cost around $730.

 

Here's the build:

 

case PHANTEKS Enthoo Evolv ITX

mobo GIGABYTE G1 Z170N
cool CORSAIR K75 Cooler
cpu INTEL i3-6100
gpu MSI 950GTX
ram CORSAIR DDR4 3000
psu SEASONIC S12G 550W
ssd SAMSUNG 850EVO
rgb NZXT HUE+
vga AOC i2367F-B x2
acc 8BITDO NES30Pro

acc CORSAIR M65 RGB
acc CORSAIR Strafe RGB

Updated a few things, new mouse (to match the keyboard that hasn't yet arrived) and matching dual monitors now!

Ha, nice build!  This sounds like something I'd do for the wifey if I won something gaming-related. :)


Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Thanks guys. I am really impressed with the case. Plenty of room to work and great for hiding cables for those that prefer a clean build, like me!

Nope, it did finally arrive thanks to Bosco's persistence!
