Description

Was easier than I thought it would be to build my own computer. I was very price conscious just because of my frugal mentality but would've spent more if i felt like i was getting more. It preforms great (on high not ultra) on all the newest games and is overqualified for games a year old+. You can spend double or triple and get marginal improvements.

I definitely dont understand all the complexities between i3-i5-i7 but it seemed to be way up there on userbenchmark.com out shining many i5's and i7's

If you're on a tight budget and you wanna build a gaming PC, get i3; if you have more money or you're building a ws, i5.

Or if you're like me and do everything and some pretty light gaming, get an fx 6300 (or 8300 if you want dat 8 cores)

Nice eggs nest of cables, though I'm guessing the side panel doesn't have a window. I now know why people want me to choose modular for my PC I will build during the summer, as my Raidmax Vortex case has a side panel xD BTW I switched to modular after reading reviews, so you didn't save me. But hey, just more experience for me :)

Also, did you build this in a rush? I completely understand why you would, but can you update the pics after you tidy it up?

I wasn't in a rush but it was my first build and i wasn't sure where all the cables went so i didn't run them behind the back of the case. I could go through and rewire the whole thing now but there's no window so what the heck... why bother.

Thermals, actually, you'll see an increase in performance if your inside space is clear of blockages.

which is not true at all. LTT workshop disapproves.

Still a good habit to have.

I agree w. you , I personally did some better cable management and saw a drop of approx 8-10 celsius. The other thing to consider is, when your cables are closer to components - it attracts more dust ; essentially shortening the lifespan of components.

Great deal on the GPU and PSU, however you could've stuck with 1x8gb ram and upgrade in the future if you eve needed more. Nice build.

I wanted dual channel and 2x8gb wasn't much more than 2x4gb. Plus I like to have a thousand tabs open in chrome...

Yeah, I DDOS my friend's server by spamming the ping in command line every once in a while just to mess with him... Yes I know that DDOSing is technically illegal, but it is fun to see how long it takes for one person to crashed by the rest of the group. XD

way to announce on a public forum that you illegally ddos your friend.

Lol. Did you read the rest of it? We all do it to each other to prank the other. I could list 30 people off the top of my memory right now that have DDOSed in my grade. lol not necessarily a good thing but we don't cause harm to anyone. It ain't like any of us have a substantial YouTube or Twitch account (collectively we have less than 100 subs on YouTube)

Only a matter of time before PCPP staff probably removes this because I did something that the law is not in favor of. They also don't like pirating, but I don't blame them. Only pirated thing I have is the shareware version of Doom 1 on ChromeOS lol

Yeah I am setting myself up for destruction =( QUICK MUST DELETE COMMENTS QUICK QUICK QUICK

Impressive machine for the amount of money you invested! Nice build!

I would recommend tidying up the cables and using the cutouts near the motherboard to route your power cables.

Other than that, a really nice budget build.

+1

Lost points for that top mounted power supply but gained points for the great deals. This is kind of what I'm gonna build soon and it's nice to see what it can do.
