Description

This is one of the first Gaming PC's I've ever built. Unless you call an old Dell Vostro 200 with a Core 2 Duo overclocked from 3.07GHz to 3.83GHz and running a GT 1030 a Gaming rig, which I still love to this day! Anyways, my rig doesn't have the latest parts by any means but I have fallen in love with each individual part, except for the case. It's a stock Acer Aspire Q6600 which at the time I didn't find many cases I liked and the case I needed HAD to be mid-tower to fit into my desk so I've been running the old case for about a year now. The main reason I don't like this case is my GTX 1050Ti runs a little on the hot side to me at least, I always try to keep my parts below 40°C which is usually never a problem because most games hit about 30°C or a bit higher. But if I start to play Grand Theft Auto 5 at almost Ultra detail and a few other games, my card starts to run around 51°C which to me is a no go.

Part Reviews

CPU

Very nice CPU, Runs all my games without a single issue!

CPU Cooler

Good low profile cooler! I would use this in any mid-tower or micro that has no clearance for a 120mm fan!

Motherboard

Fast performance and very strong! I shorted the fan controller like an idiot and it still runs without a problem! Lol!

Memory

Amazing ram if you are on a budget and you want some decently fast ram!

Storage

Fast read and write speeds, with this drive I have boot times of 3.62 seconds!

Video Card

Amazing! I have no words for this graphics card!

Power Supply

What can I say? It's a budget power supply with some strong horses under the hood!

Optical Drive

Fast read and write speeds!

Operating System

Windows 10 is a good operating system if you do some tweaks, I'm not a huge fan of the Windows 10 start menu but if you install a handy program called Classic Shell then you can customize the start menu to your hearts content!

Keyboard

Great to type on and fast response times for a membrane keyboard, although I wish this was a mechanical keyboard sometimes I am still happy with the performance!

Mouse

I've had this mouse for almost 2 years and have never had an issue with it! I will always keep this mouse as part of my collection!

Headphones

Good sound with full 7.1 Surround!

Are these used parts pricing?

It kinda weird you paid that much for old tech ep the CPU and mobo combo.

The Ryzen 3 2200G with a GTX 1050ti will still be ok with a lot of games except assassin creed origins.

Why would you be worried about temps above 40? 51 degrees is a great temperature to be at.

Agreed. I wouldn't worry about temps unless you are consistently staying in the 90s-100+ Celsius.
