Why did you choose a Celeron? For $10-$20 you could get a G4560, G5400 or Athlon 200GE, that would have performed substantially better. Save for that, neat build.

Because it is the only proccesor i can find near me,cuz shipping costs more than the damn thing here in Qatar

Somerando 1 point 3 months ago

That sucks man. Regardless, it’s still a neat PC.

are you running esports titles? I would like to see how this pairs up with a gpu.

LegendarySapphire submitter 1 Build 0 points 3 months ago

No,i mainly play Rust on this build.I may upgrade to a GPU in the future,it is very unlikely as this was ment as a budget build.Even if it feels like the CPU is gonna blow up from all the overclocking.

Why did you get a 1TB 5400RPM for $66 (CAD) when you could have gotten a 1TB Blue 7200RPM for only $45?

Got it for free from my friend

RegularTimster 1 point 3 months ago

Sorry for adding the wrong ram in the second photo;it's just because i wanted to test the slots.

TMcKenzieP 1 point 3 months ago

solid build, dude. i would definitely add a ssd(maybe like a crucial mx500) and a GPU like the GT 1030 later, once you have more funds. both would upgrade your system substantially, probably like $150 more for exponentially more performance. you'd be able to play of plenty of games but will be limited in some by the celeron, but given that you chose "coffelake" architecture you have plenty of upgrade path.

why the downvote?

TMcKenzieP 1 point 3 months ago

then again $150 is alot of money for most 13 year olds,(it is for me, too, and im 29!) up to you, boss, just my 2 cents

My brother can play that minecraft thing on a virtual machine while i play GTA V or Rust

How come you didn't get Ryzen 3 2200G? It would be much better than the Intel Graphics on your CPU.

That's the only hard drive for sale in Qatar for a reasonable price
