This is my first custom computer build. I made the entire thing while watching Doctor Who and felt it fair to name it after the blue box (nothing blue about my box though). Anyway, I only had about $650 on hand after months of saving to buy this build. Right now it has a score of 5.6 due to a bad HDD. Without the HDD the score is 7.6 . Most of the parts were bought new or refurbished off of Newegg and Amazon.The entire build cost a total of $647 USD. I have a PCI wifi card in there that I got from a friend for free. This build will be mostly used for gaming and slight video editing.
I have been using this build for a week now and have not run into any problems at all with the build.The boot
time is decent, the graphic performance is GREAT for a $170 graphics card.The processor hasn't run into any problems either. Later in the month I will be switching out the power for a higher wattage because I am currently using the bare minimum needed for the system. I will also be buying a SSD for the build as a boot drive. I have a few other things to add (better cooling solutions and what not).
Please comment down below to tell me what I did well,what I did wrong, or what I should do in the future.
Any feedback will help me make a better second build.
