Description

This will be my first full build as my other build I did I had a big help from my friend. After using that experience, I was able to make a build to update our old home computer that still used windows vista to make a new machine that was affordable to a poor college kid. The SSD space is fine because my mother only saves documents. I was able to use the old PSU from the previous system in this one, but I am considering upgrading it in the future. The 8gb of ram may have been overkill, but I got it for 30 bucks. So, why not? The case has NO cable management. Then again, it was 20 bucks, so who can complain when it is so cheap.

All in all, this build was a unique experience. It was my first time I was able to do it all by myself! The total cost when the parts were on sale was (with taxes) $185. If I was back in my college state it would have been 20 bucks cheaper. Darn California sales taxes.. Anyway, The most fun and trouble I had when I had the build completed was installing windows 7 and then windows 10 and I had not done it by myself before. This was a great learning experience and the parts were not too expensive for a machine that will last a while.

I believe the case has a PSU bundled in. Many cheaper rosewill cases have power supplies bundled with.

Great budget build, the specs are fine for an everyday use tower. The case is plain ugly though. IMO I would have gone with a Cooler Master N200 paired with a cheap 500W PSU. You would have ended up spending around 10 or so dollars more but the build would look more sophisticated. You are right though, first builds are always an experience!

The good news is that it was really cheap. It is not a bad build for the money I suppose.
