Description

I know the name is stupid but I thought of it because all the money that it put into this came from working as a dishwasher.

My cousins recently switched to computer gaming so I decided I would join them. I've never built a computer before so I spent about a month researching and reading reviews as well as talking to IT guys and my cousins. The reason my budget was 700 dollars is because of my limited income due to the fact that I'm 15 and it all came out of my pocket. I had a hard time with managing cables mostly because I have no idea how to. If you have any tips I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

CPU: I decided to go with AMD because it is what my cousins have and for the most part they were cheaper. This CPU also came with a coupon for Saints Row 4 which I have never played so I figured why not.

CPU Cooler: I read that the CPU ran hot so I decided I should pick up an after market cooler, this one had good reviews and was cheap so I decided I would pick it up. Only complaint is that it's orientations for AMD are limited but my bad for not reading that close enough.

Motherboard: I did a search in google for good budget gaming motherboards and for AMD this was the first one. I read some reviews on it that weren't the best but I decided to bite the bullet and go for it and so far I've had 0 problems.

Memory: Just standard ram that was a combo with the MOBO I decided to go with 8 gigs because I was told I probably wouldn't need more than that for now.

Storage: I'm using the SSD I picked up on sale for a boot drive and so far it has been great boot times are only about 20 seconds. The terabyte hard drive I got from an old computer which had been upgraded so I can't really complain about free.

Video card: After about 2 weeks of constantly checking to see if it was in stock I was finally able to get the Radeon R7 265. I picked it because my cousin said it was the best budget card and it has been really awesome not at all upset I didn't get the 750ti.

Case: After a lot of looking I finally found a case that had what I needed and more. as far as looks go I'd say it is alright but what I really liked was the fact that it had front panel USB 3.0 and a hot swap drive bay all for 65 bucks.

Power supply: Just went with 550W because for this build I didn't need more and it was semi-modular.

Optical drives: Got them to download the OS and burn games for my flashed xbox the HP was free from my dads office.

Case Fans: just picked these up for better airflow throughout the case, low RPM and quiet.

Mouse: My cousins have this mouse and really like it so I decided to try it out and its great.

Overall it was really fun to build and I learned a lot from the experience and I look forward to doing it again.

Like the build overall nice and balanced. Hows the 265 doing in games i'm think of getting one. Also what monitor would you happen to be using?

Thank you very much, So far I'm very impressed, the most intensive game I've played is Saints Row 4 but the fps hasn't dropped below 58 and I'm running on ultra with absolutely no stutter, If you need a great budget card I would recommend it. As far as monitor goes I'm using an old samsung was sitting around and isn't even on the website that's the only reason I don't have it there.

I like it a lot. That case looks really sweet. Any reason you're going with windows 8? Also if you do have the budget for it I would reccomend an ssd for a boot drive it's awesome but only if you have the extra money because it can always be done later. Overall I think it looks awesome
