Description

Word of my pc building has spread to a lot of my friends and this is officially my 10th build! It was for a friend who I met in Cross country and school who I've been playing borderlands 2 with. Unfortunately his laptop's integrated graphics didn't cut it anymore after failing to run gta v. So with a budget of $600, I made this:

Cpu: i5 because quad core and ready for future games

Mobo: cheap; had everything we need including usb 3.0

RAM: 8gb was enough for him and most games now

HDD: wish I could've fitted an ssd in but he needs a lot of storage for all his games and didn't want to sacrifice performance

GPU: cheaper than a 960. Maxes out all his games.

Case: It was his opinion but it's decent. Cable management holes were a bit small.

PSU: On sale at the time. Enough headroom.

You don't need a 600w power supply if you bring it down to 500w it will be slightly cheaper

PSU allows for a better cpu/gpu

It's a great upgrade-able build.

Would you be able to rate it's quality with games like Men of War Assault Squad 2 or Arma3?
