!! i3 6100 bought before G4560 came out, so that's why I went with it !!

A small update to my first build. Replaced the stock CPU cooler with Cooler Master GeminII M4. The reason for buying that particular cooler, I wanted something that would fit in my case. I know that you can fit Hyper 212 cooler in a Cougar Spike case, but in my opinion it looks silly, sticking out like it does. I was also thinking about the CRYORIG - C7 cooler, but seems like a lot of people have it here, so I wanted something different. Next small upgrade was the HD. I went from 320Gb to 1TB, I went with everyone's favorite 1TB Caviar Blue. Not much to say, it's a great and reliable. I am still very happy with this "budget Build" it's a very good computer for what I need from it. Check my mail, YouTube and still get 60FPS in just about any game with medium to high settings. Yes I know I need to fix my cables a bit hehe, that's next on the list.

Part Reviews


Great CPU for gaming and normal use, if you're on the budget, was the CPU to get from Intel before the new Pentiums came out.

CPU Cooler

Nice looking and quiet, not the best out there but it does the job.


Works great, if you are on a tight budget, cheap and gets the job done.


Works great, no problems at all.


Decent speed, very reliable, that's why most people love them.

Video Card

If you are looking for a cheap card, that will get you 60fps with med to high settings at 1080P and you are on a budget, this card is for you.


I love this case. For a mini tower, it does a great job with cooling and for a case under $50, you can't ask for more.

Power Supply

Does the job just fine, it's EVGA , that means it wont fail hehe.

Nice budget build, I haven't seen that cooler in a build before.

Perfect balance between budget and performance ! I personally would have bit the bullet and bought this budget SSD https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820147371

If you had gone with the g4560 you could have gotten a 1050ti or an rx 470. And if you had gone without the aftermarket cooler you easily could have gotten a 470 or 570. The stock coolers are fine if you are not overclocking. And since the motherboard is not z170 you could not anyway. I know the g4560 came out after you bought this, But if it was within 30 days and you got it in store you could return it and the 1050.

I bought the i3 6100 way before G4560 came out. Aftermarket cooler was only $30. The 1050 is perfect for what I need now, no need to upgrade. What I needed was more HD space and my stock cooler was getting a bit loud at times, yes I know I can't overclock on this board and I don't need to. That's why I went with those upgrades. Instead of getting a better video card =) As for CPU like I said above got it longer before G4560 came out. Thank you for your input, if I was going for just gaming then you are 100% right and I would do that minus going with G4560, because they were not out yet and no need to downgrade now.

Well as long as you don't want to run games at ultra you should be good. Great cable management.

It is really good. And you don't need to do anything since you have no side panel
