Previous PC was 8 years old, time for an upgrade. Did I mention the case and PSU are 8 years old?
AMD Phenom 965 Black Ed. -> Intel i5 6600k, 4GB DDR3 -> 8GB DDR4 2800MHz, BFG GTX 260 -> Asus 750 Ti, WD Black 640GB -> Samsung Evo 850 250GB
From the comments:
"It's a multi-purpose station. Originally I bought it for gaming, but now I intend to use it for video editing, coding, in additional to gaming.
I've been out of the loop for a while. My intentions were to pick a CPU and mobo that would last for a long time. Being on a budget I just grabbed the cheapest usable graphics card. Switching it out later will be fairly easy, I just need to keep my eye open for deals.
I'm hoping to tinker with overclocking the CPU soon, at the moment I've just used the XMP built into the board.
Also, this is the first PC I've built with my own hands."
System upgrade cost: $927CAD/706USD
