Description

Finally got to build my first pc! I wanted it to be a budget build that could handle games and multitasking. Everything went pretty smoothly, except the graphics card. I got it off eBay as a manufacturer refurbished card, but it wasn't. I had to flash the factory bios back to it for it to work probably. I got my cpu and motherboard at microcenter. I had to drive an hour to get there but totally worth it. I'm going to run some benchmarks and update this for anyone interested.

Part Reviews

CPU

love this thing. For the price I think its hard to beat its performance.

CPU Cooler

got this solely for the looks. Have a mild overclock and no problems so far with temps

Motherboard

Cheap board that works, not much else to say about it

Memory

Good looking and affordable. Performs like expected

Storage

Very affordable and lightning fast load times. Never used a m.2 before, but to me it's worth the money

Video Card

Has good performance for the price, but dated ui and led lights on it

Case

Love the look of this case and was very roomy and easy to build my first pc in

Power Supply

Affordable and just works. If you have a basement in your case its no big deal that its not modular

Wireless Network Adapter

Good price and performance
