Description

Mainly, this PC is used for gaming, but I also use it to browse the web and edit some photos.

This was built with a strict budget, and that's why it doesn't have a better GPU or a SSD.

I still love it though <3

Part Reviews

CPU

This CPU. Its great for people with strict budgets, its a quad core, even though a dual core i3 outperforms it, and it is fast, and hot. I still havent about an aftermarket cooler, but I need to.

Motherboard

A tiny little thing that packs (almost) everything you'd need.

Memory

WAM. These DIMMs are a bit too tall for this build, but they do their job, and I'm fine with that.

Monitor

1440x900 Master Race! :P

Mouse

I'm in love with this mouse.

I'd suggest throwing on a cooler and overclocking it in the future. Why else get a black edition CPU? That said, I have a similar build and I'm able to play any game I want to at decent FPS. +1

Why did you buy the 750 instead of the 750 Ti? The 750 Ti would cost you $10 more and have better performance.

It costs $10 more after rebate. The 750 is just flat 100.

Really nice build with smart choices, an SSD would be good.

I don't know if you know how to install your own CPU and Cooling unit, but you could have gotten a much better CPU and cooling unit for a lot cheaper and a lot of the other stuff too. But if you were short on time it would be understandable.

I would take more time to build a PC if given the chance. Check out my build, I would say my is an ideal cheap, all around build.
