Description

This is my first rig that I had originally built for $500 back in 2012, where it had an Antec case I got for free, an i5 3470/Asus mobo combo, 16gb of Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3-1600 ram, and a "free" 3TB WD Green I scavenged out of an old non working external hard drive.

Over the years I added a bunch of new parts (mainly an SSD, extra ram, a proper GPU), a bunch of free parts (mostly drives from non-working desktops or external enclosures) and a whopping 10 (5 of which I used) Asus P238H monitors I scored off a liquidation sale at a former FutureShop for a grand total of $300.

It still runs pretty well!

+1 for that monitor setup. Have you considered putting them in portrait mode? Less strain on your neck from having to turn so much XD

So it's been like, 3 years, and I had no idea this post even flew into ANYBODYS radar, let alone have people comment on it hahah

I just want to let people know that I'm still using this hackjob POS turned half decent computer, and that I've upgraded to a GTX1080, removed two monitors, added a Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 for art use, and replaced the CX500 with an RM750x.

It's being retired really soon as I need something beefier for work, but for now it's still my main rig!

The 5 monitor ghetto-monster lives on in another scavenge build though!

You asked, "How the **** do you have three WD Green drives."

I wasn't sure what you were asking?
