Description

I helped my little brother put this together to replace his aging computer. He plays a lot of TF2 and it runs flawlessly. I'm really impressed with the dell monitor. It's IPS and the colors look really good for $120. A lot of the parts were hand-me-downs form some of my previous upgrades, so they don't 100% match what is on the list but it's very close. I'm also very impressed with the Pentium, it's very fast for $60.

I got a lot of the parts at micro-center btw c:

Wow you have a solid computer here for some really good prices! Only price that I feel you were a bit lenient on was the monitor. 21.5 inches for $120 isn't bad, but it isn't the best. Still, $431 well spent my friend.

Yeah, I built one for my sister for her birthday back in October. Felt awesome giving it to her and she uses it every day.

I love IPS monitors. Some of them aren't the first choice for gaming if the response time is too slow, but the two I've had work just fine.

Still a very good build, but I'm pretty sure my lamp could run TF2 flawlessly.

Good on you! +1 Lamps can't multitask, but they might run TF2...

These parts are mostly hand-me-downs from his old computer... its a bit logical if the monitor costed more than the rest of the parts.
