Description

I built this as my first gaming desktop. I used a couple things I had around and bought stuff open-box, on sale, and from sellers on ebay. (Some sellers were certainly better than others). It runs so fast I can't believe it. I have never had a pc I was so proud of, and it was even better because I built it myself. Through a lot of trial and error of course. Windows is still not activated but I am looking into that.

Edit 1: Per a suggestion I got another case fan added onto the build. The system still runs pretty cool so the effects were minimal but hopefully it extends the life of the other fans.

I also performed some maintenance on the cable situation, and while it is not perfect it does look much nicer.

Edit 2: Still building it up. Works fantastic, and games are a great pleasure to play on this rig. Bought a new monitor from Amazon: the Asus VP249QGR. Absolutely gorgeous monitor overall, and it has majorly enhanced my pc experience.

Thank you very much! I have already had some great fun with it so far, and am so happy with it. Going from barely running Battlefront 2 on my laptop to running it in Ultra 60fps is a world of difference!

If this was my build, I would work on cable management. It seems like there is some room on the back side to hide most of the cables. I would also add an exhaust fan on top.

Yeah, I agree. I'm still a novice so I have a lot to work on. I have some cables in the back taken care of but at some point I'm gonna try to fix it up a bit. I also plan on adding a fan on top.
