Borderlands 2 Maliwan-Themed Bitfenix Prodigy Budget Build

Description

A friend of mine was in need of a new computer, and is a huge fan of Borderlands. Her birthday was coming up, and to treat herself she was buying a new computer in the ~$500 range. Since it was her birthday, I decided to paint her an awesome computer tower.

Using a Bitfenix Prodigy as the base I designed a Maliwan-inspired custom paint job for her case. It was also my first experience with painting a computer. Now, its about 95% done, the only thing left is to apply the maliwan logo and hexagon pattern to the sides, which are being cut as we speak. I had to ship it to her before I got the chance to apply them, but I will be visiting and hopefully doing so in the near future.

Yeah, sadly I can't re-organize them so that I can put them in chronological order, so it's a bit of a mess.

you could have got a 1gb 7850 for $100 instead of a 560 ti which is 2 generations old

 
 
venounan [Submitter] [2 Builds] 4 points 9 months ago

The 560 ti was picked up from an older build second-hand with the intention of upgrading it in the future. I told her now would be a good time to get a 7950 for ~190 to replace it.
