First Ever PC Build

I've been console gaming my whole life, and I've always been aware of the fact that PC's are better but they always seemed too complicated. Too many parts, too much stuff to know, and who wants to use a mouse and keyboard, right? Oh, how foolish I was. After about a year of gaming on an HP laptop that I bought for school (that barely got me 30 fps on the lowest settings @1080p thanks to an integrated graphics card), I decided to finally build my own rig and ascend to the MASTER RACE. I owe everything I know and have learned to the internet and the thousands of Google searches I've done. With this build, I wanted to achieve 60+ fps @1080p on games like The Witcher III, Dark Souls, Overwatch, and more. All in all, I am very pleased with how everything turned out and I look forward to upgrading her more and more over the years.
