I built this computer so I could get off my mac and be able to run games at a reasonable fps. I do not run any demanding games I run counters strike at max settings around 70fps, much better than my mac running 20-30.
I started building this because my friend Ethan also started building a PC with a i3-6100 and a 970, I will link his when he posts it here.
I was a on a budget MAJOR budget, I'm only 14 and didn't get much money other than XMAS and birthday, and this XMAS I got more money than I have in the past, getting around $150.
I got the hard drive from my friend Zach, loaded with Windows 7 32-bit. For my birthday after the summer, I will be getting 8 GB of DDR3-2133 ram, and windows 7 64 bit.
And yes, I know an APU doesn't run well with not much ram, especially on 32-bit. But couldn't quite fit more and faster ram in on my budget. I will update this when I get my new parts on my birthday.
Ya my cable management is trash
