Description

After the completion of my massive tank-of-a-machine computer, I shortly realized it is far too bulky to take anywhere. So I had the idea to create the most bang-for-my-buck computer almost entirely out of secondhand parts. Thus, the Orange Box was born.

Named it Orange Box because it can prettymuch only give a great gaming experience in games included in the "Orange Box" deal on Steam. This will be used as my mobile CSGO, Minecraft, Gmod, etc. computer. I use it in my room as a media PC and a house-wide FM radio station (More Below)

I'd say it turned out great and is really easy to pick up and take with me somewhere.

I use this to broadcast short range FM Radio signals through my house with a FM transmitter I bought. It works really well (not the best sound quality but that's expected) The clock radio underneath my monitor (custom painted btw) is tuned to the radio station the PC emits, and I use it as the PC speakers.

What is your framerate in CSGO when you're gaming at 1080p? I'm only wondering as I want to make a very budget system like you have here.

I am also very interested, I was looking at doing a system like this, just with probably an i5 instead
