I started playing CS 1.6 (again) on my girl friend's Lenovo and even on the lowest graphic settings it would still drop below 30 fps. After looking at a bunch of pre-built systems I decided to build my own. My goal was to build a system for as cheap as possible that would still enable me to play any modern pc game on reasonable graphic settings that I might stumble upon. There were a few areas that I spend to much but overall I am happy with the system and it runs well.
I am very happy with its performance so far. I struggled installing intel's stock heat sink and fan and felt really dumb after I watched a video on it.
Very well built, easy to install and looks cool! I could have save some money here but going with a different Mobo but the bling got to me.
It is Ram and it looks good! Plus I got a good price on it.
SSD where have you been all my life! Love how fast it is compared to HDD.
I am really happy with how well it has been performing. I originally wanted an RX480 but was unable to find one priced at 200 dollars.
When I ordered this case after a mail-in rebate it was suppose to only be 20 dollars...but then I threw away the box with the cpu still attached. For 20 dollars I think this is a good case but for 35 dollars you can find a better case.
Pros: With mail-in rebate it is cheap! It is a good looking case! I felt cable management was fairly easy. Has a window.
Cons: The metal is really thin. Only comes with one fan that is blocked by the hard drive slots. Only has usb 2.0 in the front. You have to open the front cover to get to the power button. My biggest complaint is there is a lip on the back slot where you graphics card comes out that interferes with my HDMI cable for my monitor plugging all the way in.
Have not had it for long enough to know how durable it will be, but so far so good.
I took a gamble on this because I wanted a cheap gaming keyboard. So far I am very happy with it. The lighting is nice and I like the overall feel of the key board. My brother liked it enough after using it that he ordered one also.
I like the sound quality and the mic works well but I paid to much for them and the left ear piece sometimes comes off headband. I am not sure how long it will last because of this.
