Description

Originally I was going to build a generic build with an FX 6300 and pair it with a gtx 960 or something along those lines.

Then I found a "broken" computer on gumtree. It had a few bent pins and seemed like nothing else. I was going to pass on it but managed to get it down to £75 with free shipping. It was kind of a gamble but wirth it in the end as I managed to bend a few pins back to normal.

The kingston drive was in my local cashconvertors store in the back. i asked if they had any hard drives in and said they only had this so yeah. I mean for £20 it's not bad.. as for my other hard drive, it came from an old modded X360. whichw as recently banned.

As for the graphics card, it was the same price as the 4GB model at my local PC world on launch. It is being bottlenecked by the CPU in some games though so yeah. I would say I wouldn't advise pairing them together but they do work well at 1080p.

As for the case, I have no idea what brand it is. Someone said it was vanquish? It seems to be doing an alright job with two fans installed in it though. The loudest thing is definately the rx 480 when it's being pushed. (never exceeds 60 though). It seems to have barely any cable management options. Tried fitting some stuff around back and the back panel wouldn't fit. So I have to put the cables at bottom. maybe it wont be so ugly in the next case, aye?

XFX power supply was the cheapest decent brand. It does what it says on the box although I didn't get one? Guess time will tell.

Windows 10.. because yeah.

Sorry about the picture, I'll take more when I get the chance. I got the 58C after a 3 hour session of GTA V at max settings.

I was looking at the i5-4590 or the 4460. They're both fairly cheap and I can still get a good £35/40 towards it if I trade in my CPU.

Think I might do that next month or something.

Hey, you got the right chipset for a Xeon E3-1231V3: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/psR48d/intel-cpu-bx80646e31231v3

You know, in case you wanted to go overkill on the CPU. ;)

Get the i5 4590, you won't regret the extra performance

If you can wait, I would recommend saving for an i7, the i5 4460 isn't bad by any means though

should've got a 4460 as any i3 bottleneck the 480 even though you should've got a 970
