Description

This system was built to give my son his first experiance in gaming for when he went to kindergarden! He is a light online gamer playing World of Warcraft, Marvel Heroes, League of Ledgends. Also, Learning games online on pbskids.com. The CPU is a dual-core and gives solid performance for what he needs. 4gb works well for his needs and the Rosewill RANGE has a solid feel for such a small case and my sun loves the look of the glowing Led Fans in his room.

I'd get a new PSU as soon as you can. Diablotek PSUs are known to blow up.

It's a nice build though. Before this I thought the "Celeron" family was only single-core CPUs.

This is a Pre-Kindergarten gaming build? Dang!! How much did this cost to accumulate all these parts for this rig? I bet your son appreciates it, and it's a good starting computer. +1

Yes he loves it! My son is has become a pc gamer at a young age. He has completely abandon his PS3 and Xbox 360. I enjoy that he can play games and have fun with online learning programs at the same time. He even installed the HDD and put in a few screws on this build. The parts came from dust collectors (out dated pc builds) the wife threatened to toss out. I promised her I would someday make use of them (HDD, MoBo, GPU) and so I picked up a cpu, new case, a second HDD from amazon; also a and 4 GB of ram from eBay. Spent ~$300 in all.

Wow, nice work on the 300 dollar budget! I'm glad you were able re-purpose parts, instead of getting rid of them. Great work you have done here!

Damn it! tell me you didn't sell a kidney for this PC, back in the old days this one cost a fortune. I had a kinda similar PC that I didn't even think to change until early this year. it could run almost any game if you go for a min. settings & a low res. but then came the day that Forced me to change when I ran an MMO Game called War Thunder even with a moded script to force a lower than optional res. it was running between 5 to 18 FPS. Despite I have a new PC now but I still have the Old One with the CRT Monitor & all the old games with Windows XP.

This system was amazing! Worked perfect for my son and I got most of the parts second hand or re purposed old parts, so it cost me next to nothing to build. He has since had to upgrade to a I5 2400, upgraded to 8gb ram and a R7 360 gpu I had laying around. The upgrade was only due to his favorite game World of Warcraft requirements. Other wise this system was still cranking along in the games he play on medium to high settings. Left4Dead2, Age of the Empires2HD(one of my fav i got him into), Roblox, Fortnite. This has been a solid system on the cheap, a few upgrades and it still runs butter smooth. I very much enjoy playing old games on re purposed old parts! That looks like a solid build for some older titles.
