Description

This machine is great for low-level activities as you can only put at most 4 GB of RAM in this machine. Make sure to check the manufacturer's website before purchasing memory for Gigabyte boards.

in all honesty, the parts list isn't all that good. you're using equipment that's at least 5 years old if not older, and compared to more modern alternatives (like a Kabini APU or a Pentium G3258) this doesn't pose a great value. if you happened to have had the parts on-hand, then i'm all for recycling the equipment, but i'm taking this as face value and assuming its parts were purchased.

at least cable management is decent considering the circumstances. i'm not sure how well that PSU will hold (i've heard horror stories about Raidmax PSUs), but any upgrades will need a new PSU if you're thinking about them.

The build cost $300! I think it's a good job for money spent.

For 300$ lots could have been done better

I would definitely replace the terrible raidmax psu, it literally might fry your whole system.

Grab ANY sort of low-end graphics card, even a HD5450 is more than enough, and play Rimworld, an amazing game. Like, utterly amazing. It is too amazing to ******* describe. Play it. Now.

Awesome. Modded, or Vanilla? I played for 2 days, Vanilla, and there wasn't enough. With mods I play lots more. 4 days in a row, then I take a break for a week, and come back. My goal is to make a huge, huge, huge colony.

Mods. Yeah I get bored after 5 days, then I come back 1 week later and I keep playing

First off, grab a GT 630 at least to improve performance by SO MUCH.

Second, it's great to see a build like this using old parts, it makes me so happy. ;D

Here's a cheap GT 630 for ~$35

Notice you have zero up-votes. Get a better psu, get a better cpu ( pentium g3258 at least ) and get a gt 630 or gt 730 in there to drastically improve performance. Even for 300 dollars, this is a crappy build. Even with an OS...

First pic: hey I know that case! Apex with handle

This looks like my kind of reclycled build. But since the description don't mention it, we have no idea how it was made. And the prices aren't static so it goes pretty much funky funny.

I've had a Raidmax PSU once in my life. Just once.

So there you have a good Internet/Office machine that is perfect, unless it wasn't made from parts you already had...

+1 For sharing the same processor as mine, people this processor is better than you think, it may be old but just for generall computing it is great. Add a video card to that and your computer will be as new, the Intel Core 2 Duo e8600 is the best of the 2 Core Duo range and if your mobo supports it overclock that thing!

Supprised to see a build with this processor, keep it going lol

You bought a processor for $45 that doesn't hold up to modern standards and a hard drive with only 320GB for the price of a 2TB HDD from the same brand.

The power supply doesn't hold much in it, and you don't have a graphics card.

Sorry, I really don't think this is a great build. Besides, it's not really $300 if you aren't counting RAM in the build.
