Description

Well I was on a pretty big budget. Gonna use it for gaming and programming. Using the case PSU right now and isn't showing any problems, so if I need to replace it I got the EVGA 500W PSU. Also, loving the BIOS menu. (I will try to get some benchmarks and temps in tomorrow)

Part Reviews

CPU

An efficient CPU, but I recommend getting an aftermarket cooler since this thing can get pretty hot.

Motherboard

A very nice micro-atx motherboard for a great price, I recommend this for budget builds.

Video Card

Stays pretty cool and does a good job at handling light gaming, and can handle even modern titles at high-medium settings at a good FPS. And a good price for performance mark.

Case

An overall not bad case. I do like the design of the front panel, and the power supply seems pretty efficient.

Wireless Network Adapter

A nice wireless adapter, has a nice client along with overall nice quality.

nice first build. Keep an eye on that power supply. Included psu's can be a little sketchy and the can ruin the whole system. Otherwise, good place to start. Down the road you could over clock with a cooler and upgrade your gpu for some solid gaming

Yeah, probably gonna replace that cou cooler soon so i can do a bit of overclocking. The PSU so far hasn't given me a single problem. If the PSU fails, I'll use the evga 500W.

Makes sense. If it was me, id replace it sooner than later just to be safe, based on experience (with logisys psu). Just a friendly tip. btw i have the same evga psu now and its great!

What happened with that PSU based on your experience?

One day it wouldn't cut on, so i went on about my business. The next day when i tried again it fried my mobo. Not exactly sure, but i had to rma my motherboard. A computer engineer friend of mine told me that a decent power supply is the ONE thing you should not skimp on. Also for future reference, if aesthetics is your thing, always pay extra and buy a modular psu.

Guess I may use my 500W powersupply instead. Thanks for the heads up.

Nice build, throw away the Logysis PSU, please. It could hardly damage your PC components...

Well, actually the chance of damaging components are pretty rare. Even if it fails, it doesn't usually have an impact on the other components.

It's not rare. It will happen soon. Why don't you change ASAP it if you have a better PSU?

hello im building a similar build so can i ask what games can it run?

  • 44 months ago

Resolution - 1440x900

CS:GO-max settings

L4D2-Max settings

Skyrim-High-Medium setting

Unturned- Medium-High setting

It's pretty good for gaming, but I would recommend the Intel Pentium G3258 as the CPU, and the GPU is pretty good for the price.

About 150 + FPS Maxed out, it is pretty good but I would recommend fitting something better into your budget
