Description

Hey everyone, my name's Hannah and I'm from the Philippines. Computer parts here are more expensive.

I upgraded the GPU, case and mobo of my PC because it won't run Watch Dogs and other new games. My old GPU was a HD 5570, old case was a crappy Trendsonic and my old mobo was fine but when I tried installing the GPU, it wasn't compatible for some reason so I got a new mobo.

Definitely an upgrade for me, my old case had no cable management options :) My upgraded rig can run Watch Dogs on medium settings, 720p

This school year, I'm not gonna spend any of my money and do my best in school so I can buy a GTX 760 :D

A 13-year-old girl from the Philippines interested in building PCs, with the money to build one? Wow, I come across people like you every day... :)

Nice first build! My only complaints are:

1) Why did you buy two separate RAM kits? I single 8GB kit would cost you only a few bucks more than the two kits combined...

2) Why did you get two 500GB HDDs, when you could've gotten a single 1TB HDD for the price of basically one 500GB?

RAM is expensive here and the 6GB was from my old PC, I decided to use it :) and the 500GB was from my old PC too

there is this magical thing called sarcasm that can be used to create humor in conversation, but sadly works poorly on the internet

Not too many 13 year old girls building PC's lol, very nice build.

hbenitez34 submitter 2 Builds 6 points 55 months ago

Yep, I even taught my classmate about computers and converted him from a console gamer to a PC gamer :D PC MASTER RACE!

That case looks figuratively and literally cool. Good luck saving up the scratch to buy a new GPU.

Given your intended future upgrade, it might have made sense to shop for motherboards with that build in mind, given that future-Hannah will almost certainly be considering other additions beyond the GTX 760. That mobo was inexpensive, but it may struggle to grow up with you and your rig.

hbenitez34 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 55 months ago

Yeah, I guess I'll have to upgrade my mobo soon too

ASAPVEJAY 1 point 55 months ago

I would upgrade that Gpu to a Nvidia 750ti superclocked
