Hey guys here the build I put together for my first time. Not my first gaming-ish rig though.
Old PC is the IBUYPOWER case.
I bought a PC that had some low-mid grade parts last year from craigslist, I had to upgrade a few parts like GPU, PSU, HDD and RAM, but I couldn't get upgrade CPU because the motherboard was LGA 1156, I stuck it out for a year until last month my video card started acting weird, fan wouldn't spin sometimes. Freeze up my computer, or shut my display off.
So I decided that if I have to buy a new card, it won't be the same outdated model, it will be a better one, but if I have to spend that much money on a card, why don't I just buy a whole new build to go with it and do it justice. So I only bought what I need and stripped the working parts from my old PC, which were the RAM, HDD, PSU, and HDD.
-Case is now an NZXT Guardian 921 RB.
-Motherboard from Asus P8775 PH or something like lol, it's from 2009 or 2010, upgraded to an Asus P8Z77-V LK
