Description

Built this for myself to play a few games. Yet to buy a graphics card but without one its still fun to play MGSV:TPP on it.

CPU: A good budget CPU. It is really good for gaming. The igpu can handle a few games with a few tweaks to the configuration files. I have played MGSV at 30 fps with a few configuration tweaks.

Motherboard: The motherboard is a good budget motherboard. It has 2 ram slots though, that is why I bought 1 stick of 8gb. It also has an m.2 slot which I am not using but I will probably add one at later time.

RAM: I never actually heard of this company but it had good reviews on newegg and it was pretty cheap, only one dollar more than 2133mhz.

Storage: Exactly what you expect for a 7200rpm hdd.

Case: A good looking case has two purple led fans. Air flow is good and has good airflow and cable management for only 24 dollars.

PSU: I got a good deal and snagged this for only 30 dollars. This has all the gpu connectors for heavy graphics cards such as a 1080.

EDIT: Did some cable managment check the nee photo and leave suggestions if you can!

EDIT:
Added the monitor, its coming in today and I will add photos later.

Part Reviews

Storage

I wouldn't recommend this hard drive. The stock is very old from 2008. The noise was getting unbearable and I used crystal disk info to turn AAM settings all the way down. The drive now has better sound but the start up time is very slow.

Always fascinated with Budget Builds. Looks decent, a good reminder for all new PC builders, not all 1st builds have to feature expensive parts.

If you want to you can play games right now before you get a GPU I forgot what it's called but you can stream games in GeForce to your computer, or use the steam version, and play games, with the main issue even with great internet connection, is the lag. (Not frame rate.)

Would invest in new peripherals. Other than that, this is a really well thought out build.

Good luck with your GPU search! EDIT: Also, cable management could've been better.
