I mainly use this computer for music and photoshop, but I do use this for gaming like Battlefield and Call of Duty. everything works as promised but the motherboard is a recalled motherboard and i didnt know so at any moment the Sata3.0 could go out.

Now if we are talking the looks yeah i have one photo for now i need to get some more it was late at night when i got done but the case looks amazing, i didnt expect the case to work so flawlessly with my wire managment system i use and when i worked i was supprised there are barely any wires out in my case most are tucked away in the back or routed through the holes into to board. The case is amazing for the price but the NZXT H440 would be a better buy might be on the expensive side but its alot better than my corsair carbide spec-03. Now when looking into the keyboard and mouse its razer they come with like 2 year warrenty i never use the save keyboard or mouse for 2 years i switch off every year or so, the monitor is nice wish i could find a wall mount at a local store to mount one so i dont have to order and over priced one online.

Part Reviews


it can be overclocked to 4.5 stabaly

CPU Cooler

Great value for the money but i would recomend water cooling


board is alittle older but it gets the job done 3 times over amazing


this ram is maybe the best ram for what i do but g.skill is better for gaming


western digital is the best for what it is and price

Video Card

not the best in Radeon or the GPU comunity but it gets the job done


very nice case has alot of wire managment makes the pc look good

Power Supply

using this because of the crossfire red devils and i need about 750w for what im upgrading to next.


best monitors in my opinion


i like the keyboard because it has cherry MX brown keys but the Corsair strafe RGB is better.


honestly best mouse for First Person Shooters and very confortable for just every day use


perfect sound with the Real 7.1 Surround sound

I don't think you know what a budget pc is, either that or your just super rich

Why are you going with a slow, old, Sandy Bridge CPU? You'll also be MUCH better off going for 1 GTX 1070 as opposed to dual RX 470s. And get yourself some DDR4 2400MHz RAM, will barely cost any more than the old, slow RAM you have here.

That’s not a “budget” build..

Black_Volumes submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 days ago

did you read the description the build is used for photoshop, music producing, and high end gaming. this is defiantly a budget build.

Rueben 1 point 12 days ago

Dude why does it total at $1600 then? Btw I don't think it's a bad build.
