Description

My name is Max. I am 12, turning 13 in April. I built this computer for mainstream gaming. My dad set a budget of $500-600 which I went over. It cost $655 because I bought the parts from MSY. The case and the HDD were pre-owned, as was the monitor which I hope to upgrade soon. So far I've had no problems and look forward to gaming in the future. Comments are appreciated! Thankyou

EDIT: I know it's an old build, but I thought I might add what I got. A new monitor, the BenQ XL2411T. A lot of you will say I should have spent this money on a better GPU, but I'm building a new PC later this/next year. New keyboard and mouse, and I made the mistake of getting the k65 instead of the k60 :P More pictures coming soon! The pictures will be in a different scene, as we moved house in between.

Not bad. I probably would've went lower on the cpu and higher on the gpu myself. Also what power supply is in there?

Max21 submitter 1 Build 1 point 71 months ago

There is a 500W PSU that comes with the case

At least it's an Antec power supply

Glad you got an SSD

Welcome to the club! Now that youve built your first you can never escape! Nice starter right though.

Max21 submitter 1 Build 1 point 71 months ago

Actually, if you have a good CRT like me, they can go waaaaaay (and I mean it) past 1080p. Past a certain point, though, it's just hard to see anything even though theres a **** ton of detail. It also doesn't help that mine is only like 15".

I'm 13 too, and I built a pc when I was 12. Now I look at pcpartpicker every single day.

I was stuck to a pretty tight budget. Otherwise I would have tried. I'm thinking about overclocking later so that would have been better.
