We needed another work station at the office. Just something to get online with and do some basic writing and video tutorials. So I took all the old parts I could find and added them to a new motherboard, CPU cooler and put in a ssd and this is what I came up with. It runs just fine for what we need and that video card can handle some basic games if she wants to keep up on her Farmville or whatever little games she plays.
She was surprised at how fast it was (she was using a old AMD 2.1 dual core) that old 4200 still runs very well.
Solid cpu does what we need. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking
Perfect for a build like this, wouldnt use on a gaming system or one your going to OC but something like this it works great and looks cool.
Easy UI, haven't had to fool with it much.
Big fan of G.Skill
Under $50 for a SSD - got to love it.
It works and was cheap
Obviously not for a real gaming system but works for what we needed.
One of the best low cost cases out there. Easy to build in and looks good.
Have always used Corsair Power supplies and (knock on wood) have had a problem yet
