Thank you for clicking on my build and reading all about it :)
I started gaming when I was 10(2009)...Well when I say gaming what I really mean is attempted gaming. Back then I had just got my first laptop and I was so happy, that is until I tried to play a game on it. It could just about manage Skyrim on minimum settings at 30 fps avg. But enough of the old computer...
For my 15th birthday my mum realised how slow my old laptop was and how frustrated I was getting with it, so she offered to buy me a £700 computer and for obvious reasons I accepted the present with open arms.
I started scouring PCWorld for a decent HP or some other crap until I thought...'How does everyone have these massive multi-monitor set-ups with just one of these things'. I then looked into these beastly machines and found people like Linus Tech Tips and Carey Holzman and realised that I could just build my own...But once I started researching parts and how only some were compatible with the others and then another part wouldn't be compatible without this or that socket and gave up on building my own...temporarily.
I looked for custom PC manufacturers like PCSpecialist and DinoPC and after going through their configurators a couple of times I realised that this whole 'build it yourself' thing wasn't so complicated after all. So I went onto Amazon and came up with this system except I was going to get a FM2+ Athlon X4 760k. Then after doing my research I realised 'Hey, what the heck' and went for the fx6300 and ga-78lmt-USB3. However the Fractal Design fan wasn't bought until later on when I realised how loud the case fan that came with the zm-t4 was.
Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse all came as part of the £700 that my mum paid for.
The ROCCAT SYVA ear-buds were more bought for listening to music on the bus I sometimes use them for my PC(These ear-buds are highly recommended if you are like me and love bass)
The Simple Audio speakers were originally in the £300 area but I managed to catch them on Groupon at a massive discount...The bass on them is amazing but I would say they were worth more what I paid for them...I would never pay in the region of £300 for them.
The Wharfdale Delta speakers and the Kenwood CD player and AMP were actually all bought together for £50 off my step dad who is emigrating to New Zealand so I just spread the cost out between them.
Unless it doesn't say because of the custom prices the entire lot cost £823.53
