Description

Originally built in 2011 for a littler over $1k tomorrow the 23rd will be 6 years to the date. I never had a single issue with this build. Plays everything I throw at it 60+fps with max settings minus ubersampling in The Witcher 2 and 3. I will be passing it down to my son after I recently updated it for a little over $350.

I will be listing a second build in the coming weeks which will soon be my new PC. Theme colors are Orange/Black with a splash of blue on a Haswell i5 4690k & Gigabyte z87x-oc board. I was proud of my i5 2500k machine I never had any regrets and my new build is already full of regret. I went off a spare Cougar 700w PSU which is burnt orange. I have no idea what I was thinking.

This build... absolutely amazing. The colors... the hardware... the case... the cable management... ugh. Wonderful! I love seeing the 2500k still being used. I had mine @ 4.9ghz and it handled everything. I have since given it to my wife but I may buy another for myself to play with :) Thank you for sharing this! It really woke me up this morning at work haha. The gpu looks great on the bottom pci lane and the nitro backplate is GORGEOUS. There is something so satisfying about sandy bridge + P67.

WELL DONE, SIR! +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1 +1
