Description

My first PC build based on Duncan33303's $600 Gaming PC Build but with some modifications such as different RAM and Optical Drive. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I'm very happy with its performance. I plan on upgrading to an i5 and getting an SSD later on.

That Red BitFenix looks somewhat hot pink in the pic, is that just the lighting/Camera?

Would love to see some pics of the inside of your box, but I realize is hard to take pic from the smaller enclosures. Good choices for your little box and a nice budget build.

No matter what, it always shows up as pinkish in pictures even on the site for it. It's much darker in real life and looks far sexier than any picture can ever show. I would upload some pictures of the inside but I am quite disappointed with my cable management.

That is always the problem with photographing red. It typically looks pink or orange.

I know the feelingon cable management. Some people are just very good at tucking and tying. I am not among them either. Just make sure you have adequate airflow and its all good.

Nice build. Been seeing some nice Bitfenix Prodigy builds recently, kinda makes me wish I had gone and built a low-profile and easy-to-transport PC, instead of my current build in a mid-tower case which totals >20 kg in weight. Although I imagine cable management would be a pain in a mini ITX build.

yes..to be honest almost none-existent in the case of the Prodigy

Is that a Dell S2240L? I've been eyeing one for a while now.

Yes, yes it is. And I'm very happy with it. I got it at Best Buy and got $20 off by signing up for their store card. I payed it off the next day and then canceled it.

if you check out the particular video Duncan made for this it tells you all the benchmarks for video games and bf3 included

Yes. I run it on high-ultra mix of settings and get 70-90 FPS.

Looking to build a similar build, do you suggest going with like a i5 53570k? since you are looking to upgrade anyway.

I'd definitely recommend you get an i5. But if you go with the same Mobo I did, it isn't overclockable so there is no point in getting the k version.

do you like that motherboard? I look at the reviews and it doesn't seem that great, lots of people put low ratings...good build though!

There aren't many to choose from. The onboard sound card is meh and you can't overclock with it, but it gets the job done and works well for a mini-itx build.

Another question, how is the ventilation in the case? With the red, orange, and white, there isn't a grate in the front like the black. Do you have any heat problems? Just can't decide between orange or black :-P

It stays pretty cool when not on carpet. I had to live in an apartment with carpet for two months and the GPU overheated a few times then, but now that I've moved back into my home it hasn't done it once.
