Description

It took me less than a month to find all these parts and put the computer together! (Sorry for bad quality photos, all i had was my smartphone) Re uploading because my friends couldn't find my PC or search for it on pcpp. Hopefully they can find it this time. I built this build with a $550 budget in mind, and i got a really good deal. I ordered all the parts within two weeks and was able to build it within a month of the first order. I used jet.com to get 15% off on lots of my parts, and Newegg had a sale on my case for $50 when i planned on ordering it. There was also a $30 rebate on my gpu, and a $10 rebate on my psu. The reason for the name was because when I first put this together in pcpartpicker it came out to be exactly $666, I did change a few parts like getting the g4600 because it was in stock unlike the g4560, but in basis its the same computer. All in all I am very happy with this computer as my first build! ps. the clock rates for gpu below is what i am using in afterburner.

Part Reviews

CPU

This is an amazing little cpu for the price. I am more than satisfied with it, and i need nothing more than this to run today's games.

Motherboard

This motherboard is a bit price, but i really wanted something with guards covering the io and other things. It looks a lot better than most other motherboards, and its great for what I need.

Memory

Simple. Matches color theme. Does what I need it to.

Storage

Again Simple, good price, boots up fast!

Storage

Gets the job done to store all my games, and projects.

Video Card

Amazing for the price. It runs all my games at 1080p with graphics maxed out at 60fps. Its also good for the little bit of graphic design and video editing that do.

Case

It was on sale on newegg and i had to snatch it up. Originally I wanted the tempered glass vesrion, but when it was 49.99 on newegg, that made it a steal of a deal. I also love the way it looks, and it is super easy to cable manage in this case.

Power Supply

A modular power supply was a must, just so I wouldn't have a ton of cables that aren't needed. And it gets the job done!

Did the motherboard support only 2 extra fans? (Beside the cpu fan)
