Mainly an upgrade, it works very good for counterstrike and all other games really.
I bought this because I wanted a system that could handle games for the next few years without a problem, and this has only been good since purchasing. It overclocks decently (i5-4690k's overclock better) and runs cool.
Bought mainly for looks, and while its quiet, temps are average. Mounting is solid and a overall a good purchase if its on sale.
It's a motherboard, was cheap, ASRock high quality, mostly black, full sized ATX, and doesn't come with bloatware (You have to manually download and install their apps). I would go with a more expensive board if someone is looking to do heavy overclocking and wants more of a futureproof build.
Ram is Ram, got it used and works fine.
Fast enough to boot windows within 20 seconds and loads games very fast. Had this for a while and shows no signs of speed reduction.
Bought this used for a build and just use it for storage. Not a bad drive, but their are much better purchases.
Amazing for the price, highly recommend for all non-SSD budget builds.
Great card for 1080p, actually a little overkill to be honest. I did not want any games to be bottlenecked, so this offered enough to last many years. The 3.5 bug doesn't effect me and I got a partial refund, so no regrets here. Runs cool and quiet. Only complaint is that it doesn't have a backplate for the price.
Very good budget case, even comes with decent fans. Bought this so I wouldn't have to worry about banging it up while transporting often, but wanting a good looking case with a window. Also, the window provides full coverage of all the good parts, including the PSU, GPU, heatsink, and rear fan without showing any wires. Very good design on Corsairs part.
Crazy expensive, but runs efficiently and silent. The cables are hard to press in and the information sticker is detracting but it overall looks good.
Windows 8.1 adds extra speed and efficiency for gaming and provides everything I need. Still waiting for Windows 10 though.
Loud, but pushes air good. I would replace these with better fans in the future.
Its an IPS monitor, so it has that. Good size for 2 feet distance and has enough settings to customize it to the user.
Great keyboard, keycaps break too often.
