Build Date: 03JAN2016
Customer requested a quad core for some multi-threaded applications that he uses for school and he wanted a video card good enough to play CS:GO, Starcraft 2, and League of Legends, as well as some older games. Everything was sounding good until he told me that he only had $300 to spend on parts. Luckily, he already had a legit copy of Windows and I scored a lightly used 260X from a fellow builder in the area.
- Quad core
- Only 4GB of RAM
- Seriously outdated HDD
- R7 260X GPU
- The list goes on
Notes: Budget builds are BUDGET builds. I have to make the best machine for it's intended purpose while maintaining the budget. In addition to the used 260X, I was able to get some pretty good deals from newegg and actually found the Ranger-M case in stock on Amazon. My least favorite part of the build is the hard drive, which has sense been replaced with a 120GB SSD. I somehow managed to lose the pictures of the interior of the build, but it was very bland and un-imaginative. If you have any questions, please ask!
Rosewill's case quality extends even to their most in-expensive products they sell. It's got everything you need for a basic build and comes with a solid quality bright blue LED fan in the front if you are into that. I love it, the customer loves it. This is my new go-to case for budget mATX builds. It also looks pretty good too.
