Description

Well i set out to build the most budget Gaming machine I could. This build is a many months old and it is still going strong. I had a r9 290 in it for a bit, but it died, no idea how. So i swapped it out for an old GTX 660 i bought from a friend of mine. I never got to use the 290 for more than a week hence why I leave it out of the build, but now that i think about it, i did not even need it. I got it off ebay if that matters toward anything. and through out that week I had it I did some testing and yes I do get full GPU performance. I did not notice a bottleneck.

Processor: I love it, meets all my needs, and it runs cool.

Cooler:(just bought it the day after the pics....) Holy **** the temps are insane, i absolutely love this cooler!

Mobo: I would like a more modern bios but i cannot complain for the price.

GPU: the 660plays anything i throw at it, im not the kind of person who want to max out everything, i bough the 290 for ***** and giggles, but the gtx is a work horse.

Case: im looking for a new one, it offers no cable management. as the pics show, i have to cut some portions of the PSU sleeving so i can route it through the back.

PSU: Enermax makes some great budget power supplies, and i have no had a single problem.

Ram: Its been great, its an older spec but it still works great.

HDD: well its a hard drive....

DVD: eh it works.

all in all it was a great experience.

Really doesn't look all that bad inside, nothing cable management can't improve. Only things I would change are, not buy a DVD/CD Drive, get a Windows7 disc off ebay, maybe a better case with the money saved. And tear off the Stickers.

A windowed case wasn't in the budget so stickers is the next best option :D

seriously though...the stickers are making this build look worse than it really is.

Congrats OP and have fun gaming.

It's not about the stickers on the case, it's about the hardware inside~
