Description

A lot of these parts are from my old gaming PC from 2010/2011. But I bought a new motherboard because my old Asus P5KPL-CM motherboard had bad caps and didn't feel like recapping them. But the rest of the parts are all old parts I had laying around that I felt a need to put to use. Right now, this PC isn't doing much, but I know people that would like to try out PC gaming and this is the rig I lend them to show them the glory (sorry for the jargon, anti-PC Master Race people, but I just had to) of PC gaming.. ;)

Cable management may look at little messy, but this case is pretty hard to work with when it comes down to it.

Dat core 2 quad :D +1 for cable management, looks better than half the builds on this site.

+1 love builds like this, so what OS did you use?

It's running Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit) at this moment. I loaded Linux Mint 16 on it so I could use it as a Linux Box to play around with. It's still pretty fast.

I see. Linux isn't bad, especially for budget builds or if you don't plan to game a lot. I used to use ubuntu and loved it until I started gaming...but nice spare parts build! Love it!

+1 for the Intel Core 2 Quad, same thing I am upgrading from. (2010 Build)

Well, it's not necessarily a throwback, but I suppose you could consider it one. One thing I refuse to do in my builds is use zip ties. They drive me crazy. If I want to add another drive, I hate having to undo all of the ties just to access a connector. I prefer to use Velcro ties instead. I think it looks good as it is, so I'll leave it. Love the case, but just wish they would have included cable management options.
