This took me from january to june to piece together because of searching for deals and from march through may I was working on building my AR-15. based on my calculations i build this for almost half price. My cost was $725 and what i found to be a fairly standard original price at or around time of purchase the cost was around $1225. Anything with $0 for the price is stuff i already had.

I'll be taking this to college with me in the fall and using it for school as well as gaming. I do most of my mainstream gaming like FPS and EA sports/2k on my ps4 and xbox one and ill use the pc for games you can't find on console, LoL, puzzle, and some iracing. I have no complaints so far and it seems to be running quite well for what I've put it through which is just some minimalist puzzle games and a test session on iracing.

The fans on the case don't seem very powerful but its staying cool so no big deal. I haven't done any tuning/OC and don't really intend to i did run a benchmark test with novabench screenshot of results are pictured.

hope you guys enjoy this build and i'm stilling looking for a name for this so any suggestions are welcome.

UPDATE: finally played SGW3 on here average 50 FPS on ultra high at 1920x1080 like most results online tend to show for the 1060 3gb

You can call it the Intel Taco!

Just a front view of the system but it does look good. I'm just not sure how I feel about that case, side panel fans seems so 2005.

my apologies for no more pictures yet haven't gotten around to taking more maybe tomorrow. I agree not a huge fan of the side fan but i wanted orange and windowed and this was on sale at thee time. If you noticed my wallpaper i actually themed it to my build since my ram is blue LED and the case fans are orange maybe that will inspire a better name.

I just thought of the name Intel Taco since its an Intel system and taco is part of your user name lol.

Hey! So my budget is around $500-900, and I'm not sure what good processor to use. could this pc run games on decent settings like battlefield, players unknown battleground, h1z1, cod?

Hey just saw this i haven't put it through anything to powerful like cod or battlefield it seems to be running tremendously though i do plan to get players unknown soon and will let you know how it performs but i suspect no problems.

Use the AMD FX-4350 @4.2Ghz

Kaby lake and coffe lake processors from intel with a good 1060 or 1070
