Description

Build Date: 01FEB2016

Request was for $700 gaming machine and requested an i5/Nvidia build with green lights(but no window). The customer didn't know much, but he was certain that he wanted an i5 and Nvidia. I asked why Nvidia? And he said "I've had more than enough issues with ATI in the past". I don't argue with my customers because it's bad practice and I knew that even though the 380 was a bit better, the 960 would still be perfect for the build.

Pros:

  • i5

Cons:

  • PSU is a tier 4. It should be upgraded if budget allows.
  • No SSD

Notes: Budget builds are BUDGET builds. I have to make the best machine for it's intended purpose while maintaining the budget. At the $700 mark, I typically spring for the i3 so that I can have some headroom for an SSD and better GPU. But in this case the customer was intent on having the i5 and I was more than willing to oblige. I used a parametric on the HDD, Memory, and Motherboard. If you have any questions as to why I chose what I chose, please ask.

I should have clarified. He has an MSDN subscription. He did not use a KMS/MAK key from the school. Also, you posted on the wrong build. But I edited the description. Don't want to cause any trouble.
