This is my VERY first PC build. Not pictured in the first picture is my GPU. It came in a day or two after my MOBO and CPU and RAM. I downloaded Rust onto my laptop and really got into it. It was very choppy and laggy however with my Vaio from 2010. I got a co-worker who is an avid PC gamer to throw me together a PC for around the $500 range. This was harder than expected, since once I started doing research I found where I can SLI the graphics and upgrade my PC in the future It turned out I spent way more than I had intended. Only reason being is I had to purchase an OS, and also a wireless adapter, both of which I hadn't put into budget. The Monitor and keyboards were peripherals I already had, I had been using them with my laptop, as a sort of make-shift desktop.
I will be upgrading the PSU in the future, I have heard some sub-par reviews about the PSU that comes with these cases. I figured it was a decent price for a Mit-Tower with 500W PS ANNNDD 4 fans built in, with some LEDs.
Performance wise, I pretty much bought this PC for Rust. It runs Rust PERFECTLY, on the highest graphics settings. I couldn't be more happier. I haven't tested it on any other games such as BF4, mostly because I have an Xbox One that I play on for that. (I know I know... It's just I have a TON of friends I keep in touch and I like playing with them)
So, any ideas for upgrades in the future?? Besides the PSU of course.
Any thoughts or concerns GREATLY appreciated and welcomed.
