First I decided to get a GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6G for 374€ but I thought for the extra money I would just get a little more oomph. Since I got all this stuff as a gift I thought I could spend a little from my own pocket
Still, these 4 parts add up to almost 1100 €, this will be the most expensive system I had so far. If I had to build this system from scratch it would be worth about 1800 euros (including keyboard, mouse, monitor, DVD writer, CPU cooler, power supply, fans, pc-case, SSD and HDD, 5.1 sound system) Crazy when you think about it...
Turns out I will get a slightly more "advanced" motherboard, basically the same I had chosen but now with RGB leds... lol didn't have to pay more for it because they didn't have my order in stock.
My case cover has an extra fan gap in the side which I had always covered with an old black mousemat and ducttape to keep dust from gettiing sucked in and didn't need it for extra cooling.
But with the RGB coming I decided it would be cool (I think) to be able to see the lightshow inside the case, so I bought a small piece of plexiglass and mounted it to cover the hole against dust and noise butt still allow an inside peak Nice DIY id I say so myself. The piece of plexilglass cost me 2.50€ and the screws I already had. They ask a lot of money for aftermarket see-through panels...
Trust is hard to gain but easy to lose.
