I use this machine for gaming, and it still does well, but definitely needs an upgrade soon. Everything worked well, just always have trouble with the hdd, since it is quite old. I build this in 2015 and it was my first custom pc, I loved the experience of making it. I recently upgraded the case and decided to spray paint some of the components. It was an enjoyable and knowledgeable experience. I learned to do and what not to do. Learned that I really need to get some sandpaper, and to not spray so much at once. Thanks for checking out my build. I cannot wait to start my next build.
Now that Ryzen is out it isn't as compelling of a deal as it used to be, but when I got it, it was exactly what I needed and is till great now.
Great cooler for a cheap price. If you want to overclock a little bit, and for cheap, this is a great cooler.
Okay m-ATX board with a basic bios, and not alot of expansion, but what can I expect from a cheap board?
It works great, is just enough for gaming, and doesn't look bad.
My drive is about 5 years old now, so it isn't as good as it was, but a Hard Drive is a Hard Drive.
An amazing card for the price, compared to what is out now it isn't too good, but it is still a great card for what I'm doing.
An absolutely fantastic case for the price, offers so many features for such a low pricepoint.
I've had this thing for 5 years and it always feels like something is going to go wrong with it. It isn't a bad psu, but it isn't one you should use for a long time. It's like a psu in a pre-built, it's a cheap off brand that you never trust to run your system, but it's the best you can do.
