Obsessed and addicted to pc building since the first build, I decided to give my Dell XPS 8500 a new life. Since half of the components can be reused so I just needed to buy few more parts.
CPU : It is not an overclocked version but still a great CPU.
CPU Cooler : Great looking cooler with performance. I replaced the stock for a Corsair SP120 Led for only one reason. To give the PC more vibrant at night.
MOBO : Small and ugly...The reason I keep it is, if I change the motherboard I would lose my Windows license since it tied to the motherboard. It's an OEM version of Windows.
RAM : Another ugly part in my system but they are still working good.
SSD : For $60 CND, it performs better than expected. Windows booting under 15 seconds and all programs run fast.
HDD : I has one 500Gb laying around after upgrading my PS4 to 2Tb. I'm not installing any programs on it so I'm ok.
GPU : Will replace it with my GTX 970 from other build once I get my hands on GTX 10xx.
CHASSIS : Catched this on sale. Very easy to work with and it looks nice too.
PSU : Very silent. Great performance for a price.
Overall, I'm happy with the result. This PC is running fast and smooth. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. Thanks for watching !!
