It was my 6th game ever. I bought the game this past Sunday and about 2 hours later, I did it. I nearly returned it to steam (joking). Since then I've gotten a hand full of top 10 finishes but didn't take pics, I know...pics or it didn't happen, but since I already got the chicken dinner, snapping a pic of 3rd didn't seem worth it.

Hey everyone,

Quick update for those curious.

I got the majority of my parts in on Friday and installed (no gpu or RAM). The Noctrua is HUGE. That said, it fits in my case nicely and keeps my CPU at an idoling 24C and at about 43C under load.

I tested everything I could (I had 4gb of ddr4 laying around) and it's all good.

For kicks I loaded up No Man's Sky to see how it runs now. Before, with everything set to medium I was getting about 28fps. Now I am getting 49-50fps. So a solid jump there and it's only going to go up.

Again, thanks to everyone for the advice, you all made this very easy. I'll post pics once I've got cable management taken care of and the gpu/RAM comes in.

How does this look?

I go back and forth on RAM. I edit audio so 32 would probably be nice but I have 16gb in my current machine and it seems good enough (though I wouldn't know how much better it could be...so yeah).

The Mobo is definitely the thing I know the least about, so thanks for all the input there. From the reviews, I feel pretty good about the one I have picked now. I don't mind paying a bit extra to get a pretty new board and have the ability to OC later. I also don't mind overkilling things. I'm the type of person that would rather have it and not need it than vice-versa.

I get the whole waiting for AMDs new cpu, but I'll be honest, I want this pc now!

I plan on ordering everything soon (when I get my tax refund back). I'll post picks when I do the build and the final looks of it, along with some benchmarks.

Thanks again to everyone for the input. While I've done almost everything you can do with a computer (change ram, HDDs, GPUs), I've never built a computer from the ground up, so this has been a pretty big adventure so far.

Thanks again Duders.

Edit: fixed the link.

I just want to drop this in now, my current case is from an old Dell. I need a new one!

I'll update the build this weekend and post the revised specs.

Here are the revised specs

Thanks to everyone so far. My power supply is 3 months old and 750w so I'm good there.

I would much rather have the option of overclock than not so I don't mind paying a bit more even if I don't need it.

I'm looking for advice on building my first computer. Here is what I have (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/KvK8zM). I am not going to overclock so I think the cooler I chose for the cpu and the one in the case is fine. I am going to scrap my current PC for all the other parts not on here (SSD, HDD, optical drives, power supply). I'd like to not really go any higher price wise.

So questions;

How do people feel about the liquid cooler on the gpu? Is it worth it?

With liquid coolers, how can you tell if the case is compatible?

Is there anything that's nice to have while building the computer besides thermos glue and screw drivers?

Do I need more than 16gb of RAM?

Finally, would you change anything and why?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Sometimes this still feels like one sick joke and that one day I'm going to load up GB and its just gonna say "Got ya". I wouldn't even be mad, in fact I'd be so, so happy. Miss you Ryan.
