I've upgraded a bunch of off the shelf desktops before but never built a desktop from the ground up, and with having used a laptop for the past 2 years, and it not being ideal for gaming, I decided I wanted to build my own budget gaming PC.
My starting budget was $800.00 so after a little research and some discussions with some people I play online with, this is the starting build I went with. I figured once I have some extra cash down the road I can upgrade parts here and there.

- Sandisk SSD
- WD Blue 3TB HDD for Storage
