Description

I have been collecting parts for a while now and I finally had enough to build a basic gaming/workstation pc. fitting everything into the skeleton was a small challenge, but the semi-modular power supply helped a lot with that! other than that, I tried to fit a cm hyper 212 evo in there and it did not fit, so i went with the basic intel cooler feel free to rate and tell me what I should upgrade first! looking to get a gtx 66ti and a 600w power supply!

Sorry this is my own opinion. .. Terrible parts for how much you spent. .. ugly ass case .. no ssd...crappy motherboard. .. crappy case crappy wires... crappy videocard.. who knows about the ram.. best thing in your system is the dvd drive. sorry but this is prob the uglyist thing ive seen in a long time

keep in mind this is a Frankenstein pc with all of the parts coming to me for free, as extras in a trade, or people giving them to me.

Dude fix your ram :( you got 3 diff sticks in there it looks like... i wont down vote this but i wont up-vote either. good effort tho

 
 
thesupergeek [Submitter] [3 Builds] 1 point 8 months ago

the ram is all the same ddr3 1600mhz ram. dont know what you are thinking. it is in 3x4gb configuration

Ram speeds and timings and volts could be diff. Also running 3 sticks like that your running it in single channel.... lol your better off running 2 as dual ... and if this was givin to me for free I would have melted the **** down for the gold and silver

 
 
thesupergeek [Submitter] [3 Builds] 3 points 8 months ago

it is all the same branded ram from the same godamn kit.

Well with that attitude it's a no brainer why you got -17 votes.

 
 
catz101 1 point 8 months ago

They make 3 ram kits? never knew that. Must be from the secret underground black market... lol

it came with a 4th stick, but it was dead and the 30 day period of return was up.

That case is definitely not meant for households with small children. I have enough trouble keeping them away from the power button on my HTPC. Not my cup of tea, but it is certainly different.

Parts list is ok, except for the imbalance with the CPU vs the GPU for gaming, but it sounds like you have plans to fix that in the future already.

I don't see any ram listed, but in the photo it looks like you have three of four slots listed. IN that configuration you are not going to be able to take advantage of the dual-channel capability. It doesn't make a huge difference, but something to consider.

As a gaming computer as-is, I would give a downvote, but for a sort of frankenstein work-in-progress, it gets an upvote from me.

Holy crap, that case was 185? D:

That nine hundred under it seems hella better.

"keep in mind this is a Frankenstein pc with all of the parts coming to me for free, as extras in a trade, or people giving them to me"

the case was extra when I traded my psp for a hdtv and 100$

Could have gone with something like this case http://pcpartpicker.com/b/CZk

Antec cases is the worst case ive seen. From DF series to the Hundred Series.

You can get a Fractal Design XL R2 for 110$ -.-

And i would suggest. GET A GOOD MOBO. Like Gigabyte For cheap MOBO or MSI or ASUS. Intel is good at CPU not at the MOBO. And if it is a gaming BUILD. Get a HIGHEND GPU.

 
 
thesupergeek [Submitter] [3 Builds] 2 points 8 months ago

doesent anyone read the context box anymore. read it. i dare you.

 
 
Guingix 3 points 8 months ago

I read it. But still YOU COULD SELL THAT AND GET A GOOD CASE.

 
 
StewieMonSta [1 Build] 1 point 8 months ago

Never seen a case like that before!

I don't know why everyone's being so negative, it seems great for the franken-box it is... and I think that case looks awesome :D

(yes, I know this post is 8 months old)

Hey, its alright. I like to hear feedback.It is an ok build, made with spare parts. I sold it on CL for $850.

Nice build but I was never a fan of this antec case. Looks like a potty training chair lol

 
 
thesupergeek [Submitter] [3 Builds] 4 points 8 months ago

really? I think it looks pretty cool, Its just the wiring and stuff which makes it a pain in the ass.

 
 
thesupergeek [Submitter] [3 Builds] 3 points 8 months ago

why did I get a -2? does anyone want to explain or are you guys just going to be trolls.

Most likely the weird model Seagate drive combined with the $80 DVD burner and the Intel branded motherboard that seems to be way overpriced for what you get.

 
 
boodboo101 1 point 8 months ago

Its pretty decent since he got it all for free lol
