After months of debating on parts, prices, creating a budget, and selecting those parts, I bought them all and put together my first pc creation. Her name is Darla. (name subject to change)

Investment: $1400

Parts/Specs: SilverStone Strider Essential 5 500 W PSU
MSI Z97 Gaming 6 Motherboard Killer E-2200 Series
Intel i5 QuadCore CPU Processor
Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750ti GPU
Zalman Z3 Plus Tower Case
Seagate Western 1TB HDD
Deepcool CPU Cooler


She runs like a charm!

What's that thing behind the keyboard? Something to measure your wee wee with? I don't... I don't get what that is.

Barely anything works for that unoptimzied junk it uses mostly only one part of your machine:

It looks nice, but I'm trying to figure out where the $1400 went. A PC of those specs should not have cost that much unless you're including peripherals. Again though, for a first time build it definitely looks nice. My youngest brother recently put together his first computer, but I gave him two 670s (4GB versions) for his build so he got a bit of a bump spec-wise.

Was the 1.4k$ for the everything, including the keyboard, mic, etc or just the PC? I'm guessing for everything

Congrats! I'm kind of confused too once you get past the 500 to 600 dollar range you should at least have an I7.
