Description

I live in Albania, a poor country in difference to the other European countries or USA. Gaming PC-s are called "luxury" here, because most of people can't afford even a 500$ one. That's why most of albanians play only Counter Strike on their low-end PC's or play PS3 on Gaming Centers for $1/hour.

I am a 15 years old gamer, i own a PS3 and a 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM with integrated graphics laptop and i wanted to have a gaming, photo editing and a good PC where i can do programming without the lag of the laptop. So, i worked 6 months on a local television as a graphic designer and the money i earned there i used to buy this PC. My dad's friend got those parts in England and shipped them to me, and the price of all the parts is 58.000 Albanian Lek or $550~. If i buyed the exact parts here in Albania (if I would find them here) this PC would be a 800-900$ one. So i`m glad to have a PC where i can play games on High-Ultra settings.

Im am an albanian and i wanted to call my PC in a name connected to my country, so i`ll call this the "Two-Headed-Eagle".

CPU: This CPU is a beast for his price, i haven't overclocked it because i`m afraid to do it because my PSU is not quite good, and it still plays the games i want on High or even Ultra.

Motherboard: A nice micro-ATX motherboard, cheap and including USB3 ports, a good and simple Bios and the other features it has are quite good, gives me the possibility to upgrade in the future (Like upgrading the CPU to an i5 and the RAM to 16GB)

RAM: A good stick of RAM, in the future i might get another like this and have 16GB of RAM.

Storage: 1TB is a nice capacity, this HDD was cheap and very good on performance. I will get a PSU when i`ll start upgrading.

Video Card: I love it, it's a pure beast and run's my games quite good. 2GB are enough for me and it pairs quite good with the CPU.

Case and PSU: The case and psu are the first in "To-Upgrade-List" because they aren't a brand, that's why i don't like them.

Nice work on your build here. It is a good start to have with some possibilities to upgrade and it will serve you well for what you use it for. So again pat yourself on the back and be proud for what you needed in a computer and making it work. I know you'll upgrade some components down the road, when you can. +1

You have a good build here, and good room to upgrade if you chose. Got to love connections that can get cheaper parts for you, I hope the shipping and tarrifs weren't too much.

The one who buyed them to me came to visit his parents in Albania so shipping was 0$ for me. He was a good man, lol.
