Description

I originally started with a pre-built gaming PC, but I have upgraded it over time. The only things remaining from the original build is the 1TB hard drive, PSU, CD-drive and 2 sticks of RAM.

It is intended as a gaming PC, although I don't play many graphic intensive games on it. I have not overclocked it yet, but it all seems to be running really well.

It's a bit dusty now, I should probably clean it.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Originally upgraded to this from a stock cooler. Very noticeable difference, it does a great job at keeping my system cool. Only problem is that it is quite fiddly to install. I recommend having a friend to help you hold it in place whilst you install it.

It is very tall, so make sure that your computer case is big enough to fit it. It was too big for my original case, but it seemed good so I bought a new case for it to fit properly. Although I admit, it was my fault for not checking the dimensions correctly.

It only loses a star for being awkward to install.

Storage

Works really well, can't complain. Fast read/write speeds. My Windows PC starts up extremely quickly because of this.

Case

It is a very basic case which does its job well. I had no problems installing my motherboard into this, hard drives and PSU fit in well.

Operating System

The operating system is really fast, it works well. However, I have a huge issue with the amount of built-in spying software that Microsoft has installed by default.

Monitor

Absolutely fantastic. Performs really well, it is also amazing value for money. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cheap monitor that does a really great job.

It is even better than other monitors which I have used which are more expensive. I am surprised that it isn't more popular.

PLEASE upgrade your PSU. You have a ticking time bomb on your hands.

Was really surprised when I read he still has the original PSU and powers a 980Ti with it.

My PSU is 500W. It previously ran an AMD FX-6100 CPU and a Radeon 7850 GPU.

How about some more pictures. It's hard to make out what you've got going on in there.

Why the 980ti if you don't run graphically intensive games?

I intend to run some graphically intensive games, but by coincidence I have been playing games with low graphics.

If you can't name the exact model PSU you have, replace it. I was surprised you got it to start up with a prebuilt PSU and a 980ti

+1 for your Awesome Cable management. Lets get some more pics though please.

I have a cable going under the GPU to the CPU which was a very poor idea. I need a longer CPU cable, I'll get onto that.

Should've waited for the GTX 1080.
