Description

Hey guys! This is my first PC build after upgrading. I wish I had a before/after of what I was using before.. but that thing was ancient. I managed to salvage some of my old parts.. but even those could use an upgrade. I have not included my HDD here just yet, because it isn't in my computer until I have received the IDE to SATA adapter.. (yes, my HDD is THAT old). This will only be temporary until I gather the funds to buy a better, larger, HDD. I feel lucky that my 500w Rosewill PSU works...for now. It seems steady and running fine, even when playing games like Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. I'd like to upgrade that very soon, though. Another thing I hope to upgrade is the stock CPU cooler. This motherboard is meant for OC'ing, and I'd like to use it ASAP!

I know my set-up isn't the prettiest, but I hope for a desk / chair upgrade in the future! I could also use a new keyboard (I was looking at the SteelSeries Apex RAW Gaming Keyboard as my next upgrade, and I could use some new speakers as well, since my old ones that I was using had come with an original Gateway computer back in the day, and had a million unnecessary wires that looked pretty bad behind my desk and was always a tangled mess.

So there you have it! My first build, complete.

Replace that PSU with a better one as soon as you can! I'd invest in an aftermarket cooler to overclock that CPU. Didn't need to get Win7 Ultimate. You should probably get an HDD to go with that SSD just in case it ever ***** the bed..

Oh yes, I'm aware! The 500w is a bit unnerving and I hope to possibly upgrade to a nice 700w very soon. Same with the CPU cooler!

And I didn't buy Win7 Ultimate, I just added it here for the sake of it. About the HDD.. I previously used one that had roughly 200 gb's on it (not much..) This thing is OLD. I mean, the company which made this HDD was bought out by Seagate in 2006, just to give you an idea. So, unfortunately, it did not have the correct male-end plugs (if i'm describing that correctly) to be compatible with my motherboard. I purchased an IDE - to - SATA adapter for a quick fix.. but hoping for an HDD upgrade in the future for some more space which I will definitely need.

Nope, I certainly did not. I just wanted to add it on here for the sake of displaying what I use, haha.

Like said above, please add a description and more pictures. Or this will be down-voted.

I've never published a finished build before on this website, so I was not aware that I needed a description..it seems to be self-explanatory. "Here's my parts, look at what I built".

For the future, could you please tell me what kinds of things I'd incorporate in the description?
