Description

Hey guys, after eagerly telling my friends how successful my build went for Parthenon, they all wanted me to build them a computer. This friend took my trust and allowed me to build him a computer. He supplied all the parts, that I picked out, and I built him a computer. His budget was around $700, OS included. I did the best I can to pick out the parts for him. He wanted everything to be purchased from Fry's, because he wanted new computer asap. I advised him to order online parts, but he didn't budge. So my friend and I went to Fry's with a budget in mind and picked out all the parts. The build process was really easy. It only took us a couple of hours, to build and to install the OS. My friend uses his computer for CS:GO, Minecraft, BO3, LOL, and for school. The computer handles it with ease, without severe fps drops. He is one happy customer... hahaha!

Keep in mind, its very hard to hide the cables from a non-modular power supply in a case that has literally no cable management places.

Review for the Case: 1/5 stars; Very bad case, no cable management options, feels cheap, and there should be a better alternative for the money.

Review for GPU: 5/5 Stars; Looks great, and love the fact it uses no PCIe cables.

Thanks

I dont think it does, its an h motherboard, and doesn't support any clock rates above 2133
