Description

I'm back! I've been away for a while, but I'm still building pcs. This is the latest one that I actually got pictures of. I picked up some cheap used parts in trade and also bought some off of the Bay. The only new item was the Cougar MX200 case, not the best case but it was cheap. Price to performance for used parts is what I was going for on this build. The Gigabyte GA-H77 was pretty cheap, has tons of fan headers, 4 dimm slots and a mSATA slot. The mSATA drive really helps this pc boot and run quick. The twin WD 500GB blue drives are used for less used games and media. Its a pretty solid overall pc and decent gaming pc. I may upgrade the GTX650 ti to a GTX1050 ti to give it a little more punch for gaming., the 650's 2gb ram limits it in some modern games. The little EVGA 430 watt psu was cheap and when I stress tested the pc it never cracked 200 watts. Also when stress tested the cpu never got over 74c and the gpu stayed at a cool 60c.

great job on getting the used parts for a great price. Impressed that you were able to stuff an ATX mobo in that case and still keep it clean!
If you do upgrade the GPU go for any 480/1060 that takes a 6 PIN. No need to waste time with the 1050 ti since you have a PSU that can handle a 6 PIN.

Thank you. Ya, that case is not the best and a little cramped for a full ATX board. I may pick up a RX470 on the cheap. Most of the parts were ones i got in trade or off of ebay, the 650 ti was one I got in trade for some pc work I had done. I already have a i7 with a GTX1070 for gaming, so this was just a fun way to get another pc built and on here. I'm think of selling this one to support my pc building habit. I'm thinking I can tailor this build to what someone will want/need.

Pretty sweet but I would go for a more modern card if I were you.

I may sell this ( as I already own a 6700k-gtx1070 pc ), so I may or may not put in a different gpu. If someone wanted it mostly for gaming, I'd think a RX470-480, or 1060 would be a good pairing.

Yeah, but me I'd just sell the parts individually. You could probably sell the i7 for $150+ or with the mobo for like $220. You could also sell the 650 ti for about $30-$50. The rest, other than the Drives and RAM, is worthless

Unfortunately, its all I had at the moment and all my piggy bank would allow. I'm probably going to sell this, so it may just depend on what the buyer wants, if they aren't a gaming then the 650 ti may be ok. The 650 is light-years ahead of the built in HD 4000, but still the poor ole i7 can't really stretch her legs out with the 650.
