Description

Built for gaming and other general uses.

CPU: Originally i had the fx 6300 as the CPU but i figured for $20 dollars less the 4130 wasn't a bad option. We may go back to microcenter and exchange it though.

CPU Cooler: The computer is for my girlfriend and she wont be doing any overclocking so it wasn't necessary.

Motherboard: The motherboard was free with the CPU from microcenter.

Ram: I had 16gb of ram in my pc so i just took 2x4gb sticks out and put it in her pc.

Storage: Found the HDD on Craigslist for pretty cheap.

Case: Good, Cheap, Cable Manageability isn't bad either.

Power Supply: Good, Cheap, Reliable.

Graphics Card: Good performance for the price.

I was going to take pictures of me putting it together but i was too excited about building another computer and ended up remembering after i already finished...

Total Price after taxes minus mail in rebates was about $330 dollars.

this is the perfect build for light gaming. I built practically the same thing for my girl friend too. she pretty much exclusively plays sims 3 and tell tales games and the 7770 maxes those out on ultra with ease.

Yeah it's not really going to be used for a lot of super heavy gaming. Mostly stuff like LOL, swtor, minecraft.. etc etc. I mean even if she wants to get into heavier gaming i know she wont mind playing at medium settings. I just wanted to build her something nicer than her POS 6 year old laptop that she's been using to play games on haha

I just put together a build with this case and cheap is right, using it for a server build was a poor decision on my part.

oh well clean build there fella.

Great build! I always hear a lot of people talking about MicroCenter. I really wish I had one where I live. I'm tired of waiting for the slow UPS man to bring my parts to my door! Anyway, just throwin that out there...

microcenter is incredible. i hope (and have been doing my part to ensure!) they remain profitable against the online retailers because if anyone deserves it, they do. their prices and selection are pretty much the same as newegg, and it's way more fun to be there in person figuring out what you want.

Yup, I hear ya! Though, I would get jealous seeing all of the expensive stuff right there in front of me. That's why I can't go in to Best Buy without feeling a small bit of jealousy lol... That smell reminds me of a brand new computer. :)

Thats adorable... If i had a girlfriend like that at night when we were playing or just browsing the web. I would look over my screen and just stair at her why she played.. ahah or just setup a camera and recorded all of here rages. Or something like that.. Nice rig though!! Cheap and reliable i like it!

Thanks a lot. I spent awhile picking out the perfect parts and looking for deals so it means a lot. Now if only i had spent just as much time on my first build :P

Wow browsing through old builds I thought I had somehow posted the build I made my girlfriend a few years ago.

Same everything!! even the desk is the same.... except for an xfx gpu wow that was weird.
