Description

So I had a small budget to build me a new computer, but wanted to be able to get back into gaming and start streaming again also. So after a couple of attempts and some friends help I came up with this (also Having some of these parts already ) This isn't the complete list of What I ended up with, I ended up getting a couple things from best buy one day to add. Kinda last minute thing. got a 240 GB SSD to add onto this, and a webcam. But this is most of what the build was. And the OS is windows 7 Professional.

All around All, spent around $800 on this build and every bit of it was worth it. If you want a somewhat cheap gaming/streaming pc this could be it. There's a lot of things you could give on, or change to keep the price lower, but this is what I ended with.

I don't have a ton of pics of the build from while I was doing it, but here are the little bit that I do have.

Part Reviews

CPU

This cpu has been great, it runs smooth and pretty fast. For the first couple of days while waiting for the gpu I used the onboard graphics from this CPU. It ran super smooth, even with running 2 monitors.

Motherboard

this Motherboard has been great so far! First it really does have a cool look to it, but it has tons of USB 3.0 and the Bios is very simple and easy to use. The disk with all the drivers has tons of useful stuff on it. I could keep going on about this.

Memory

This ddr4 ram has been amazing, also cool looking as well. But not much else to say about it, it's RAM.

Video Card

Its super smooth, I have no problem running games at the highest settings with high FPS, even while using 2 monitors.

Case

It has a really good look to it, it was easy to build it. Easy cable management, and the best part is the price. It wasn't bad at all.

Power Supply

It's a PSU. not much to say.

Case Fan

They are fans, The light pattern is what I mainly got them for, but they are pretty loud.

Nice budget build man! Tbh I was suprised when I saw you used the stock cooler XD I guess it IS built to work well with it's CPU, but you don't see many people using the stock.

I wanted to use a different one to be honest, but since I'm on a budget and I'm not gonna be doing any overclocking the stock one should be more then enough.

I think if you could cheapen out on the case, you couldv'e maybe gotten a used GTX 960 4gb or something. I saw an asus direct cu GTX 960 4gb at microcenter for $170. I know it won't directlt affect you, but a thing I wouldv'3 done personally. * like your cable management though!

There is honestly a lot of ways I could have made this build cheaper, but I am picky with my cases, It was hard for me to even go with this one to save money. I've always wanted the NZXT H440 Black/Red case. But settled with this. Even with a budget looks matter to me. And I could have done that with the gpu. But one, I would rather have a new one, and 2, there aren't any microcenters near me lol. And thanks! cable management is a huge thing for me.

It's for streaming and gaming on the same pc, Not using it as a Dedicated Streaming RIg. It has worked well for it. I've streamed almost every night since I got it complete and for about 3 hours a night. The only thing is one some games to stay in high Settings I can't stream at 60 FPS but I can do 30 FPS perfectly all day, and it stays really smooth, and the temps stay cool.
