Used mostly for gaming, but i also watch movies and listen to music on it. Was a MAJOR upgrade from my trusty old Socket 775 c2q email@example.com. That machine was a sleeper for sure, and games quite well, but her time has come and gone.
I am hoping that this machine will last me as long as the old one did (8 years nearly). I am sure i will upgrade the cpu/gpu and ram before it is said and done, but the computer itself should be able to keep up for a long time to come.
So far i am getting solid FPS in all of my games at very high and even ultra settings, mostly 60, and sometimes dipping as low as 45-50.
The pics are from before i added the h60, and cleaned up some wires. It is very difficult to hide the mass of wires from a cx750, non modular power supply in such a small case.
Some parts were taken from my old machine. The PSU, the 3 and 2tb HDD's, the mouse, the monitor, the speakers and the SSD. The 4tb Hybrid drive was a purchase from a friend for 50 bucks. All told my actual final cost of this build was just under 800 bucks. Not too shabby for the performance i am getting for sure, and i have plenty of space for all my games and music and stuff. Overall i am very satisfied with this build and i look forward to upgrading it in the future.
