Description

My brother has always wanted his own gaming PC and so I decided to build him one for Christmas. Given that I don't have as big as a budget as I did with my own PC, some things had to be cut. But the game he's mainly wanting to play is Overwatch and I think that this PC will handle it just fine. His favorite color is red so I tried to pick parts that go with that theme. I really wanted a red and black themed motherboard, but couldn't find one that fit withing the budget. :/

Nice build but I would go back and rework the cables inside and wrap them around to the back of the case not only for a cleaner look but also to help for later when cleaning out the case

Trust me, I did all the cable managing I could do. The cables that are shown I could do nothing about if I tried to reach them around the back it wouldn't reach so they had to go in front. All of the other cables are in the hard drive bay area.

[REMOVED] I would've opted for a 120gb or 240gb ssd if all he does is play Overwatch and a couple other games. Like others said I would've gone for a i3 but other than that the build is good

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

The pentium g3258 is better CPU that is unlocked so you can freely overclock it. It is also priced for less on most sites.

I would've gone with the MSI Radeon RX 470 ARMOR OC video card at $170 because I have it and I am constantly getting 90+ fps on overwatch high settings.

So far, I've only tested Overwatch on this since that was the main game he wanted to play. It has an average of 60FPS on high settings for the game. :)

Yeah, I mean the only reason I didn't go with the 950 was because of my budget, but the 750ti works just as well.

Oh, I guess I could. That would be an extra $30 dollars for a year of BitDefender.

Yup! It runs at 1080p with high settings with no problem. :)
