I have been wanting to build a PC for the past 3/4 years now but never had the funds to do so. Now that I have been lucky enough to get a job (Im 17) i can now afford to do so. I have been creating builds on this site for about a 2 years hoping one day to make one. I had a budget of £500sh for the PC and keyboard. I decided to use my TV as the monitor so that I could save a bit of money and kept my desk uncluttered. I already had the mouse from when I had my laptop and a copy of windows 7 Ultimate that my friend gave me (he got it free on his College course but didnt need it) To keep all my files for college I took the HDD from my old laptop and put it in the PC. In total the PC came to £484.66 (excluding the mouse as i already had it) which I am very happy with.
Note: Im in the middle of doing some benchmarks on Planetside 2, Hitman Absolution, Tomb Raider and Battlefield 4. I will update these and the PC temps soon
Benchmarks: Planetside 2 - Maxed out 60FPS constant Metro Last Light - Very high 45-60FPS Call Of Duty W@W - Ultra 90FPS constant Call of Duty Ghost - Ultra 55-60FPS
UPDATE: I bought a new mouse, ROCCAT KONE PURE COLOUR (inferno orange), a Corsair H60 and 2 noctua NF-f12 fans
I will be doing some custom sleeving on the PSU cables and I will tidy up the cable managment and maybe add in some orange LED lighting
