Description

This is the second budget build I have done, I already had a few things, like the case, graphics card, and power supply, I know they're not the highest end or highest quality, but I can vouch for them, they worked great when I first bought the computer and have never had any problems with them. Only two things I can really think of upgrading are the power supply and GPU, which are the two most common upgrades anyhow.

EDIT: I just put windows 10 tech preview on it and this thing boots in at least 15 seconds, why didn't I do that originally.

yeah i would upgrade PSU before GPU... the r7 250 isn't great, but the PSU is just terrible

Yeah, they're both from a pre-built system from cyberpower I bought when I graduated high school. They haven't had any issues though, I just didn't have the cash to splurge on a new psu

a meh quality one from EVGA is only $20, and fairly good one from Corsair is $30. Not a huge splurge really.

This is a nice little clean setup.. I'm kind of a sucker for small clean builds.. Did you do any overclocking on this? If not, I wouldn't until you upgrade to a psu, go for this:

Thanks, the cable management in this case though is like non existent. So I had to try my best, I somehow managed to get the cables tucked under the front mounted fan, so there isn't any airflow blockage, but there isn't any overclocking as of now, I can't say what will happen after its sold.

How much do you think you'll sell this for? It's a solid office and casual gaming machine, especially if you put a 750 ti and that psu.. Will be a beast little thing.

I was thinking as of now, 350 or so, yeah, if you put a solid psu and a 750ti you would have a fantastic cheap little machine.

That's not too bad of a price for it. Good luck man!

CPU, Ram, MOBO, and HDD are good. I would get a small SSD for nicer boot times and soon a better GPU. But first get rid of the PSU, it might have worked, but better not fry your system. Can you post more inside pics?

Gotta say, it's a good budget build. What are you using it for?

Thanks, this is a budget office work/gaming pc, its just needs a better psu and gpu, most cost efficient would be a gtx 750 and a better psu.

It worked fine for me while I used it, but I definitely knew I needed to upgrade

I actually got this one from my grandma when she got rid of her PC, and I wasn't expecting much out of it, but the display is really nice, but I have a 1920x1080 27" for my computer so.. :P I think I'll keep this one.

HP w1907, I think. It was a fantastic little monitor.
