My First Official Build - The Black Mamba
by ImMzrly
Permalink:   (14 comments)
Description

I have upgraded like every component in computers before, but this is my first official build from COMPLETE scrap.($$$)

It has taken 2+ months to get the parts and build this and I'm still not done! But it is still awesome. It is about 4x better than any computer my family has had ever. They love me for it.

I hope you comment your questions/concerns/tips/tricks/ideas.

The Power Supply is a Eagle VoltasX 550w ATX12V (ET-PSVTX550E-BK)

Not sure if I would call this "The Black Mamba" more like the Gardner Snake with a bad head of hair; Medusa would be so proud. :)

It's garter not gardner. Sorry, as a snake person I had to correct it.

Don't mix and match RAM.

You might have been better off with a piledriver athlon. It is a much better CPU than the old athlons.

You could have made some better choices and spent the same amount. Don't mix and match different brands of memory.
