Description

I built this computer with some used and some new parts hoping to make for a good value. I think I can say it worked as I sold it for $500 about a week after I built it.

The video really says it all

I have to say, you have performed cable management wonders in a budget case that was not made to be so clean! +1 from me, dude, great work! :)

That was a really good video. What was the song from 4:10 to 5:10?

I believe that was Erykah. I downloaded it from Youtube's audio library.

Where did you get your Windows copy from? I couldn't hear it on the video.

What kind of games could this computer run? And what is the Heatsink Bracket?

Think of it as about as powerful as a GTX 960. Take a look at any AMD socket motherboard. They all have a plastic bracket that the CPU heatsink mounts with. Liquid coolers often do not use these, and since the previous owner of this board had a liquid cooler that means he removed the bracket and unfortunately lost it. So I had to buy a new one.

If you look closely in the pictures you can see that I actually had it mounted with zip ties when I took these photos, the bracket hadn't arrived yet at that point and I didn't feel like retaking the pictures.

Hey man, just looked up that CPU and saw it was first released around 2004! How'd you get it to sell for $500? I'm pretty unfamiliar with AMD's cpu offerings and how well they age but 12 years is quite a long time to still be selling well. Does it game well even after all this time? Either way, way to go saving the money and then making some back with a sell!

I'm not sure why you think it is from 2004. This processor was released in 2010. Not that new really, but seeing as AMD hasn't released a genuinely new architecture since 2011 it is still pretty relevant.
