Description

Here is my pc. It started out over a year ago as a budget build and has had numerous updates since then. The pricing on the site doesnt accurately reflect what I paid, I'm just too lazy to enter each items price. I started with a Pentium G3258 and upgraded to the i5 later, hence the anniversary mobo. The OCZ trion was a later addition and it's been wonderful. In a system like this I can max out numerous titles or at least play high settings at 1080p. Nothing is OC'ed at the moment. Games I play alot are GTA V, Guild Wars 2, The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, and much more. I cant name a single game this pc can't run except maybe Ark, but thats just due to horrific optimization. Feel free to ask questions in the comments.

Please note that this originally was a $500 budget pc that I upgraded over time. I posted this in response to an inquiry about the past parts: First: The case was originally a Raidmax Vortex V3 ATX-403WB Processor was Pentium G3258 I didnt have the ssd or the samsung hdd (came from old laptop) The new case has no optical drive bays so my asus dvd drive is just sitting in the old case One part i forgot to add to the list was the Creative Soundblaster Audigy Fx 5.1 sound card which was added later on.

The hyper 212 wasnt added to the system until i got the i5. I oc'ed the pentium on stock cooler for a while and it worked out great for me.

Also my psu was a EVGA 100-W1-500-KR 500W but that wouldnt have been enough for the r9 380 which was also an upgrade.

My original gpu was a MSI R9 270. I think thats about it.

I'll update it in a bit. But I can tell you what I had:

Cool. Was going to upgrade most my parts soon. Especially the case and get an aftermarket cpu cooler. +1 on the build

If you get a hyper 212 evo just beware it wont fit in many cases. Either way best of luck.

djdirka 1 point 32 months ago

Yeah was thinking about the 212 evo but I've decided to buy the cryorig h7 to fit my white/black color scheme :)

Nice

I have updated the list of parts. Obviously the part prices aren't the best. This has been a pc build that i've upgraded over time when I had the money to do so. Either way I hope you enjoy.
