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.
