Description

I've bought everything from this list besides a couple of hard drives lying around, the optical drive and ram came from a prebuilt computer.

This is literally a prebuilt computer gutted out and I changed most of the things.

I bought the Elgato to record my Wii U and PS4 game play when this was still prebuilt. The motherboard was a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2 with an AMD FX 4300 and a EVGA GT 720. I bought the case first and then saved money for the motherboard and an Intel Celeron. (Just so I know the motherboard wasn't dead.) I kept the ram, power supply, and the optical drive. Found out I accidentally bought a new power supply, so I gave the other to my sister. After a while, I upgraded the Celeron to an i5 4690 (Non-K. Not really planning on overclocking so why bother spending a few extra dollars when I can save that for later.) Newegg later had a sale on a GTX 950 and decided to buy that to replace the GT 720.

I want to know if this is good. I know it can be better (but I'm saving money for college so I'm not really going to change anything from here for quite a while) but I want to know if this an okay build or a decent build. Any helpful criticism will do. (I want to work with computers for a living so I want to know a lot of things.)

don't ask why Arthur is there, just accept it

This is nifty. The only thing i have to say is that you could have got a GTX 960 or R9 380 for not very much more than the cost of that schfancy 950 (unless the sale on that 950 was less than is listed). Overall though, pretty good.

At the time it was on Newegg for $190 if I remember. It was on sale close to the price amazon has it now ($170) So I decided to buy it anyways. Besides, I have no problems with this GPU at the moment. I do not plan at upgrading right now. I know I will soon though. Probably after I get into college, I will look around for the things people have said about this build. Once I get into school I will have a bit more money for me to spend for myself.

If you cant tell, the wireless adapter has tape around it because it broke apart while I was changing my graphics card and I kept it in the USB. Little old me was careless. (I didn't even unplug my PC)

Great build, i like the fact that it started as a pre-built and evolved into what it is now. The only thing i would do is add an ssd. +1

Getting ready to upgrade this guy. -the motherboard -the case -added ram and hard drive

After a while, I'll upgrade the gpu, a better cpu cooler, and possibly another 8gb of ram
