As you can see on the title this is my very first build so you guys can consider me as a "noob" in the PC building world. This is a $1000 setup that can still be upgrade. I build this PC because of my potato laptop can't run all the games I'm playing and almost all of those games needs a high end components to work perfectly. So in conclusion, this is my very first build that I use to play games to get a minimum 30fps at games. Please comment you think of my build and what parts should I upgrade to make it better in the future.

(Some of the parts are not shown because I bought them at the store and some of the parts aren't included in most countries so that's why some of them aren't in this website)

Part Reviews


I rather go with the pentium G4560 since its cheaper and way simillar to this cpu. But still, this is a very great cpu for budget builders.


What can I say it's a hard drive, it does its job, and fulfil my needs

Power Supply

One of the best budget PSU and since EVGA PSU is rare in my country (the fact evga psu is cheap af)


This keyboard has its plus and minus The plus side is that is cheap, LED, and comes from a company that you can trust. The minus side is that its loud and the feel while pressing the keys feels rigid. Thats why i gave this a three stars


I can say this is the best mouse for gaming. I had this for over a year and it's still works like new

Nice build! I might recommend a rx 480 as they have seen some price reductions recently and should allow you to get 1080p 60fps with your CPU. Also, a cheap aftermarket cooler such as the cryorig m9i and some custom cables (don't have to be expensive) would definitely help to make your PC look nicer. Also, you got a great deal on that case!! Tempered glass for $50! Are there any issues with it? Also, any reason you chose the i3 over the g4560? Are you sure your temps are right too? They look too low for a stock cooler. Do I see a custom desk too?

One you should of got a Z series motherboard so if you ever get a K series CPU you can overclock it maybe when you can get another 1050 ti and put it in SLI and maybe get a new monitor when you do that but if you dont want to get a overclocking motherboard just get something like the i7-7700 two more things maybe get 16GB RAM thats not a custom part but heres some RAM that i got for my PC and is sick G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory PART # F4-3000C14D-16GTZR and for a CPU cooler if you get the i7-7700 get the Hyper 212 evo
