Hey guys! This last year my laptop decided to start dying, and by December, I decided it was about time I entered the world of custom PCs. I spent hours on research, and finally found the parts I wanted to go with. So after Christmas, I started ordering.
CPU: I chose this CPU because it seemed to preform well for a budget CPU, especially since I got it for $50 2 days after Christmas. It seems to be running to my standards in games.
Motherboard: I took a risk with this motherboard, with some of its online reviews of undetected ram slots and it just not working for some people, but I wanted an atx motherboard, so I got this guy. Absolutely no problems so far.
memory: It's RAM.
Hard drive: I actually got this hard drive for Christmas with plans to upgrade my laptop, but it ended up going in this desktop because I needed a hard drive.
Video Card: I got this for the price of a 750ti with Amazon prime. It absolutely reaches my standard in games for quality and Frames. Amazing budget card.
Case: I got this case when it was on sale for $35, and because corsair tends to make really nice products. I actually ended up ordering 2 cases, the other one being a LOGISYS case that was just horrible. This case has decent cable management for the price.
Power Supply: I chose this power supply because it was semi-modular, 500 watts, and 80+ bronze efficiency. It is defiantly probably the first thing I will upgrade, because it's not really meant for gaming.
For peripherals I have the razer deathstalker essential 2014 keyboard, a blue snowball mic, Cyber acoustics CA-3602 speakers (amazing speakers for price) and an anker mousepad.
Cinebench: OpenGL: 62.35 FPS CPU: 308 CB
Heaven Benchmark: FPS: 111.7 Score: 2814 Max FPS: 221.9 Quality was high
Ark: survival evolved Ran at high settings at 30 fps for most areas. Would occasionally drop down to the 20s
More benchmarks to come soon. Downloading games again.
Amazing budget CPU. If you want to get into PC gaming on a little bit of the cheaper side go this route!
I saw a lot of bad reviews on this motherboard, but I took a risk and ordered it because I wanted an ATX board. I have had no problems with it what so ever. If you want an ATX FM2+ board that's blue, go with this one.
preforms how it should.
AMAZING card. I absolutely love it, runs all games smoothly so far on high to ultra settings.
awesome case. Case with a nice fan, and it's durable. Nice cable management for the price.
Wireless Network Adapter
Does what I need it to do
