Description

I wanted to do a complete setup for around $500 for my bedroom, but ended up spending just under $600. That includes pc, desk, chair, monitor, mouse, mouse pad, rgb lights, mech keyboard, fake plant, headset and headset stand, oh and a butt load of spray paint. The pc alone cost me $320. The motherboard shipped with a bios that allowed me to use the g4560 without being updated which kind of surprised me. The acrylic backplate was really easy to make, may add them to a couple of my other builds.

Hey thanks man

Venenosa 5 points 1 month ago

This is absolutely amazing! Anyone can make their builds look amazing if they got tons of money. But it takes a very passionate and creative person to do what you did, with such a small amount of money. I hope you get featured you deserve it for this beauty. +1

Where'd you get the wallpaper? Also, did you build the desk?

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The wallpaper I found by googling green viper. The desk I built myself for $24 using laminated particle board and some cheap legs I found at Menards. If anybody buys those cheap legs look at the welds before buying them, some are really hosed up.

Nice build! What keyboard and mouse combo is that?

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks. It's a Z-88 keyboard and a CW10 mouse with the Avago 3050 sensor which is a decent sensor, but not a flawless sensor.

I like this build it proves with even a small budget you can still build a pc that can run games at decent fps and this build includes everything which makes it even better

amazing build bro +1

What chair is that tho?

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

It's an OFM Essentials gaming chair with the metal parts of the arms and base painted white. It was a little pricey for such a tight budget, but I made the mistake of sitting in one at Staples and had to have it so when it popped up on prime day for $73 I jumped on it. The chair is the reason why I went with the lime green over a more traditional green like I had originally planned.

YungSandWich 1 point 1 month ago

I wanted to build something similar for my friend's younger brother i was wondering if you could tell fps you get in certain games

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

If I have time I'll do some gaming benchmarks tomorrow or this weekend if I can't do it tomorrow, I'll also overclock the card and see how well that does.

Do I have to buy cooling for this or no?

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The g4560/1050ti don't put out much heat so you should be fine with the intel stock cooler and the 2 fans that come with the case, but this case has horrible air flow. If you use hardware that runs warmer I'd either plan on modding the case to add a fan to the bottom or look for a different case all together.

Thank you

This man deserves a cookie.

Would this setup be able to run h1z1 and PUBG on good settings because im thinking about making a similar build!! If you know please tell!

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I have h1z1 but haven't played it yet on this system. I just watched a video of a guy playing it on a similar system (6100/1050ti) and he was playing on ultra settings averaging around 50fps with dips into the mid 40s. He was bottlenecked by his GPU so if he OCed the card and turned settings to high and tweaked some things he could probably get it to 60 fps.

MrGamingTurtle 1 point 1 month ago

Sweet! This pc will be the best for me!

ZachKarram 1 point 1 month ago

Where did you get that cover for your GPU? I love it.

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

It's custom made and it was really easy too. First I cut a thin piece of acrylic to the size of the card. Then I cut out the pattern on some vinyl and stuck it to the acrylic. I painted the back green and the front white. When I removed the vinyl the green was exposed. Makes it look really nice doing it like that.

Impressive for the price. I like it.

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

How is fps in Games and what settings?

Fiduciam -1 points 1 month ago

I would change the memory to a Corsair one and change the motherboard to the ASUS one. The same things, only changing the manufacturer, just to be more reliable.

tony475130 3 points 1 month ago

Gigabyte and crucial are both pretty reliable brands as far as PC hardware goes. I've had corsair memory and an itx mobo from ASUS die on me before so any brand is susceptible to failure, especially in the budget market.

Fiduciam 1 point 1 month ago

Im just saying, ASUS has better performance and the company is focusing on budget now. Corsair i understand, my experience um corsair were so good that i always prefer to use it, so im wrong on thinking that it is better than any other company. And a fact, in therms of memory, Kingston has the best products you`ll ever find and i have no doubt about it.

Obs: sorry if my English isn't that great, it isn't my first language... :)

casheesed submitter 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

All my decisions were based on price because of my tight budget. My mobo was $25 and my case was $10, I built my desk for $25 etc. I'm addicted to building PCs, but I'm po' folk so I have to make compromises.
