My dad used to play a lot of computer games and build computers for family members when he was younger... until my mom made him stop haha. Now it's my turn
Parts list: Intel i5-6400 GA-Z170-HD3 Corsair 16 GB -2400 RAM Samsung Evo 256 SSD WD Blue 1TB HD Asus Strix 970 Fractal R5 case EVGA SuperNova 750W G1
Here is my current computer build that I put together around Oct. 2015
Stacking my computer components together, waiting for the case to be onsale
Asus Strix 970
2 weeks later got the case
Ready to put together
The best part - assembly
My keyboard and mouse kept breaking down, fortunately the company kept replacing it and eventually upgraded it. I put it in the trash as a joke for my friends (still had to return it to the store though haha)

I'm also building all my computers since 10 years.
Save a lot of money that way and make upgrades a lot easier.
I don't play PC games anymore though ... for that I bought a PS4. Easier on the hands.
One problem I had with my last build was that the company sent me a bad powersupply. I had to send it back at my dependent. Weighting 8 lbs, the shipping fees were high. They send me another PSU that also had a problem ... I was really angry. So next time, I'm buying the PSU at the shop near were I live.
Nice setup their Ive been building my own since the 486 processors, Apple IIe was my first computer then switched. Built one last year about 14 months ago, now I find my PS might be acting up, computer suddenly shuts off, never had that happen before. Use two computers, Linux for my Internet and Windoze 7 for work station. Used to have a server till they cut down on the open ports. Built a computer for a friend at Christmas was nice to be active again in building
I'm more of a take 'em apart, and neglect to put them back together kind of person... well, unless it's a machine i actually need to/for work... ibooks used to be pretty fun to fix, but now that they use glue (ipods), i am pretty disgusted with apple (i suppose they're not the only ones gluing things either). i mean, seriously? rather have us buy new, than fix something. pfft. (doesn't help i was used to be greeted by name when entering a mac store, now i have to make an appointment online before someone will even talk to me... but then, i jumped ship when they went intel - haven't regretted it either.)
