Description

So after a long time gaming on xbox I decided it was time for an upgrade. My friends had already moved onto pc so after a very long time I saved up and bought the parts as I had the money. until one day. I had everything i needed, i set to work.

After nearly 2 hours of construction I gazed upon my work in awe. (sort of). This case being one of the budget variety doesn't have a whole lot of room to hide the cables so i tucked them where I could and tied down the rest (thats my excuse anyway) the rest of the parts I tried to get the best value for money without sacrificing to much in the way of performance, I think i did well as the final cost was £560-ish or $920, (I managed to get the GPU for £190) and the os was a Gift from a particularly rich friend. so far it performed past my expectations (not that i had much to go off) and im really enjoying playing with my friends again. this wouldn't have been possible without the help of many forums (including this very one:D ) and many youtube videos. Thanks for all the help from you guys :)

I plan on using that exact same processor on an eventual build. XD

Also, for those too lazy to calculate, it totals to $816.21 in US dollars.

I dunno about the high end card with the lower-ish end processor. Be sure to OC it a bit to ensure no bottlenecking occurs. Nice build though!

I looked at may a forum and the processor will not bottleneck the graphic card, I don't plan to oc until i get a decent aftermarkets cooler. thanks for the input!

Kind of funny because my friend, cousin, and I planned to switch to PC gaming after being on Xbox so long. But nice build, mate. I like it all and you did a good job!

Cheers!
