Description

I have been wanting a Gaming PC for as long as I can remember. In silent reading (in school) I would secretly go on PCpartpicker and do more research and look at completed builds and how-to's. I got all this stuff on black Friday but forgot about mail in rebates so not so great savings :o

Please watch the video, I did not take very many photos.

I am only 13 and live in Canada, PC parts here are way expensive therefor I had to pay way more money to get good performing hardware.

I earned 4/5 of the money by myself from work (Legit work) This includes yard work/cutting grass soccer refing and other stuff like that.(the rest of the money was from birthdays) .

I have a some YouTube videos of me building it.

Test-Showcase(watch first) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dCJCrPkxyg

Build part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_bkltXXXyY

Build part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1HJTSB5MMs

I use this PC for so many things, I do schoolwork when I need to and when I am free, its time to game.

If you have any questions please ask me.

Also it would help me out if you could sub to my YouTube channel, (you don't need to but I would really appreciate it)

Thanks, Space-Age

Hey, I watched some of the video content. Sorry, I cannot handle music, mixed with chattering which I had to mute your videos. The low quality, shaky video content made it difficult to see at times too. More preferable to have less hand handling with the video recording or basically just be able to keep it more still when it comes to building PCs.
Also, I was surprised you had benchmark results but I did not see most of your games recorded. Most of your benchmark results were just final numbers with what games you had tested. At least Minecraft was shown which is cool.
Otherwise, you have a good gaming build. Knowing you had to pay in Canadian Dollar, I think you will be happy for what you are doing. Thanks for sharing your build and good job! +1

Thanks. I feel like with some of my videos I rush them and need to format them better. I think that this will come with age and experience. The camera is potato, (I know) In the future I will make a video kinda like a gaming setup and PC showcase. It will be on my YT channel. Some of the games were on a friends PC and it just didn't work out as I wanted it to. The shaky camera was my friends fault, but I should of used a tripod. Please feel free to ask me anything else you may be wondering.

Thanks, Space-Age

No worries, I am only being honest with you. Does not mean you should be discourage. You are correct, practice will come with experience. I know how that feels myself. No matter how young or old we get, the more we practice the better we will become. Your attempts are still notice and your build will serve you well and be upgradeable in due time. ;)
I am curious on one thing, how much did your build cost you? I am guessing $900~ or somewhere close to it? Again, good job and enjoy your brand new computer.

I am perfectly fine with your comment. The whole reason I posted this was for feedback. The whole build including windows was around 900 plus tax so 1040 $

Thanks, Space-Age

OK, glad to know than. My goodness, that is certainly more than my own price range with this build. I'm able to get under $700.
And oh yes, I forgot to ask one more thing. What monitor are you using? I can see it's an Acer but not sure what model.

Hey man. Solid build. But, like Eltech said. That music. That first video sounded like a strip club. I'd gladly watch these again with their natural ambiance though. You never know what you might learn from watching someone else build their machine.

Thanks for the comment. I will improve my videos based upon this comment. I made this video a while ago and I was a very bad editor. one question, by first video did you mean the benchmark video or the build video ?

Thanks, Space-Age

The benchmark video. In videos, it is the comments on the build that I like to hear. About the quality of the parts or ease of installation or whatever else. Video is an easy way to capture frustration or relief depending on how a build goes together. Speaking for myself, I'm not there for the music though it does have its place. Others might feel differently. I love that you did videos though and you will only get better with time. Keep at it. I hope I get to see more from you in the future.

Thanks, I do think that I need to watch more videos of others building there PCs so that I can get a general sense of how to format the video and just some tips.

I watched a couple of your videos. I'm impressed with the amount of work you put into this and sorry that you had to pay premium to get those parts up there. I think you have a pretty solid build and the blue string-lights were a nice touch in the photos.

Thanks, the thing is that the Canadian dollar is low and PC parts are just really expensive here anyways. Try switching the currency and seeing how much stuff is :) I am glad that you like the photos and I will be posting more in a month.

Great job on the build (and the fact you paid for it yourself at 13)

Upgrade path should be an ssd for system disk, And maybe 2 more sticks of crucial ram for 16 in total.

What do you think about this SSD Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

  • 40 months ago

Hey there. Great work with your build. I'd recommend you invest in an SSD as your boot drive. It is a night and day difference from a traditional HDD, way faster and much more reliable and durable. 120GB ones costs $60 canadian I think.

I am currently looking at one that is around 240gb I think. I did not have the money at the time so I figured I would wait.

Thanks for the comment.

Your welcome. I would recommend an 850 EVO from Samsung. Reliable drives. They're a bit pricey, but worth the high cost. SanDisk and Crucial make some really good ones too.

I was looking at a sandisk but I will check out the 850 EVO.

Is the 6300 working fine for recording while playing??? If so is there enough power to run a mc server on it??? +1 for working hard for a pc..... I know what that like ;)

It is good to know that others dont get money handed to them for nothing :) I currently use shadowplay which is on nvida geforce experience. Shadowplay uses the gpus power to rec but I think others would run fine, you may have to turn down a few details on a 1080p ultra/high setting game.

I am not to sure about the minecraft server but this may help,
