My first build ever, I had an old Hp that served me pretty well up until late last year. I called it my Frankenstein PC because I had practically replaced every component in it apart from the mobo and CPU ( it was an HP a1020n with an Intel Pentium 4 processor and running Windows XP). With the new consoles coming out in late 2013 I couldn't justify investing my hard earned money in something I new I didn't love 100%. So that's when I decided to make the move to PC Gaming. I didn't realize how addictive and expensive building and continually upgrading a PC would be. Half of the money spent was on parts that were purely cosmetic and for aesthetically pleasing purposes. I'm planning on upgrading more parts, but as of now I couldn't wait to post my progress so I uploaded what I had so far. I owe a lot of my motivation and inspiration to this site. It's Awesome!!!
