I built this for my girlfriend for office/school work and light gaming with an upgrade path in mind. After 7 years the old E5200 just wasn't going to cut it anymore so I decided to build something from scratch that she would like leaving room to expand.
CPU: g3220 -- very impressed with this cheap chip, will likely upgrade to an i7 in a year or so
MOBO: msi z87-g55 -- great board for basic set up, OC options are there for the future
RAM: g skill 8gb 1600 -- it's ram, should stay decent for a few years
HDD: seagate 500gb -- enough for now, will add an SSD later
GPU: radeon 5450 -- ok this is just temporary, will likely add a GTX 650 for mid range gaming
Case: nzxt source 210 -- love the simple design, I don't have any USB 3.0 devices but I can always upgrade
PSU: thermaltake 430w -- will upgrade with GPU but I have had no problems with it
Monitor: lg 27" -- big screen with clear picture
Fans: corsair white led 120mm -- this was overkill but I was going for a white/blue theme, will replace one with blue LED and swap the other 2 with 140mm for the top
Any feedback or comments are appreciated and if you want to see more pics PM me.
