Description

A few months back I decided I wanted an upgrade to my Omen gaming laptop (GTX 1050.) So I went and I started making a list of parts. I was worried I would break something so I tried to be relatively cheap. So I ordered the parts and I started building. I finished and I came out with an amazing gaming computer. Also sorry for only two pictures.

EDIT: So far my computer has served me very well, however i believe I have a bad ram stick as I am getting many BSOD crashes related to ram.

Part Reviews

CPU

I like the processor, however when I'm in the late period of strategy games I am considerably slowed, but I'm planning on upgrading this.

Video Card

I am really satisfied with this GPU, I'm able to run all of the GPU-demanding games I've tried. It also manages to stay really cool.

Great first budget build. Next upgrade should be to sell your 2200g and purchase a Ryzen 5 2600 so you can take advantage of the full PCIE x16. I think using the 2200g with integrated graphics custs the pcie lane down to 8x for the GPU.

Yes, it does, I didn't know that before I bought it so I probably should've saved up a bit more for it.
