I know, I know... The title sucks, but that's all this PC is. It's just something temporary so I don't slit my wrists this summer. :)
CPU and Mobo were both bought from a kid for $80 combined. Already had the CPU cooler from another project that's on hold. Memory was bought from a friend who just upgraded. HDD is my ol' faithful WD Red 4TB. SSD was leftover from an old Dell laptop, but it still works, so f*** it. Video card was bought used (guy wanted $200, but I talked him down to $150). Case is leftover from another more different project on hold. And the PSU was bought used for $70. The 4K monitor is new, but I didn't pay anything for it... So I had my Korean 1440p monitor for sale for $250, and some guy offers to trade me his 4K monitor, or $350... So I went for the monitor. It's not great (the colours need some work), but it's nice to finally be able to watch 4K **** on a native 4K display. :)
So yeah... I put in less than $400 and now I'm playing GTA V on Normal/High settings at 1080p. Suck it, console n00bs! #PCMasterRace
P.S. Don't mind the messy desk. I didn't feel like cleaning it to take pics for 20 seconds.
P.P.S. Also, regarding the lack of pics, I don't have boxes for anything, and it wasn't all bought at the same time, so I didn't feel like taking a couple pics every week for a month.
P.P.P.P.S I have updated the temps, using EasyTune6 (I do NOT recommend this app, but it came with the mobo and is the only utility that doesn't give 90C+ temps under load). Idle temp is a bit more reasonable now, and load temps (read after 3 hours of GTA V) are much better.
