Description

(This is a re upload from the first Hello Inferno build since we were crucified for not putting an io shield on and the cable management being horrible.)

My friend Steven wanted to build a gaming computer on a 450 dollar budget so I created this part list for him excluding the ram and the hard drive. I will explain my reasoning for each part below.

CPU

Since Steven is only gaming and was on a budget I picked the Pentium G3258 since its cheap and has decent performance when overclocked and so far its at 4.2ghz at 1.12 volts and I plan on pushing it further. I know that isn't too good but I guess we just got unlucky with the chip though if you have any advice that you think would help with that be sure to put it in the comments. (NOW AT 4.5ghz AT 1.275 VOLTS)

Motherboard

I chose this motherboard for Steven since I wanted him to be able to keep it for a while and to give him any option he wants in terms of crossfire or sli. The bios is really nice and the board looks really good.

Storage

I said to just go with a Western Digital Blue 1TB but it was his money so yeah.

Video Card

Steven actually didn't purchase this it was a gift from my friend and I to him for his computer. We got it for 60 dollars and it performs just fine,

Case

For its price this case if fine. it looks good, has enough room, and has decent cable management. Building in it wasn't a problem at all for us.

Power Supply

Just a power supply works fine for this build.

Case Fans

They push a good amount of air and upon adding them there was a huge temperature drop which allowed for a higher overclock on the CPU.

Part Reviews

CPU

Perfect for a budget build

Motherboard

Has all the features anybody would want on a motherboard. SLI, Crossfire, and a great bios for overclocking.

Memory

Its ram and does its job.

Storage

It is very nice.... a little big, but does the job. ~From Steven xd

Case

For its price its very good. Has enough room and decent cable management.

Power Supply

A PSU that works well.

You fix the motherboard bend? This was NOT an IO shield issue BTW.

Did you take the board out when you fixed it?

I understand that the io shield doesnt affect the bending of the motherboard its probably bent because we bent it while trying to plug some crap cables in and yes we did we had to install the io shield

No its bent because you didn't use all the standoffs correctly.
