If you're wondering why its way over $600, it's due to me adding my gaming monitor.
I didn't want to go up into the thousands to build a gaming PC. So I set out on a quest and did some research for awhile to build the best budget gaming PC I could. I wanted 1080p gameplay on all the newest titles around and even some old school gaming that I do. This PC delivered everything I wanted and more for the price range that was unbeatable.
This CPU is great for what I needed. Affordable and is plenty fast. Overclocked to 4.0 ghz.
I bought a Cooler Master Hyper 212X (Turbo Edition). This is plenty enough cooling power for what I needed and has 2 fans on each side. What more to say?
Very nice motherboard, has everything I wanted.
Ripjaws is the best DDR3-1600 ram I've found and cheap. Does its job well.
1TB is plenty of space for me.
This thing is a beast and serves me well. It's the best and highest already overclocked out of the box GTX 950 I could find. Plays everything I need it to and even clocks to about 1400 mhz maxed. Better than most GTX 960's.
This is the best affordable gaming case that had the best reviews all around. I love this thing. Slick, has 2 case fans and cable managing is amazing in this case. Doesn't feel cheap at all in the slightest. What more to ask?
Powers this beast for a good price. So so quiet.
This is my first PC build. I'm not new to PC gaming, just new to building. If you're looking for a affordable gaming PC.. HERE IT IS
