Have been saving up and doing odd jobs since August. I finally got the money mid October and ordered my parts. They arrived a week later and I assembled it with my dad. Once it was finished we powered it on and it immediately shut down. We tried turning it on a few times and the PSU started to smell burnt. We returned it and got a new one. And it finally worked. Now I can play most games on ultra settings with great FPS. The free components and Windows 8 copy were given to me by my dad.
Will probably upgrade my monitor, CPU fan, case fans, mouse and keyboard either later this month or in the near future
Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks in Advance!
EDIT: Sorry for the bad quality pics only had an iPhone 4 at my disposal.
