Description

I always wanted a PC, and now I have it! Dont look at prices, because in Latvia everything is overoriced.

CPU - Good enagh for me. The HD 2500 graphics were the best ever used, before I bought graphics card. Case - could wish more space for cables. everything else is good. GPU - what can i say, this is the first time I ewer use a PC with graphics card. Motherboard - could have more PWM fan connectors. Monitor - i will buy a 24 inch one next month.

I see some people pointed out monitors and coolers. You dont need a cooler but def get a new monitor. Also get another one of those rams and youll tear it up!

Nice cable management for the space you had to work with, do you have any benchmarks? (Those sexy internal pics) +1

thankfully the cases back cower has an extended part (not that good in english) without it there's no room at all. A benchmark is in upper right coener:). Tried the best with my phone.

With a stock i3 processor, there is really no need for an aftermarket cooler unless he just wants the pc to run quieter.

great pics and FANTASTIC cable management for a first time build. +1.

Nice build, but I personally would get a better mouse + keyboard and a better case with more cooling options and better room for cable management.

Other than that +1.

P.S. Nothing wrong with CRT's, dat sexy refresh rate HNNGG

the case was bought a few months ago, didnt look for a case for cables and cooling back then. when i had to put cables in place I ralized how important is place for cables. That CRT is decent, atleast doesnt hurt my eyes like others.

Please don't tell me you aren't using that monitor? If you are buy a 1080p LCD with DVI please or you are way overkill on the gpu.

Description says that crap is overpriced in Latvia and he'll be upgrading next month. Just not in the budget yet. But for now he'll be getting crazy framerates in all games at such low resolutions lol

i didnt buy the CRT monitor, i just had it. And I will buy a 24" 1080p monitor.
