Hey guys this is my first build , was on a budget then the peripherals , monitor and OS blew that budget out of the water.
I decided to build this computer because my all-in-one with an APU at 2.1GHz wasn't cutting it.
I live in Australia so the prices are ridiculously expensive and probably for the same build in the US it would be have been $750 USD. My rig will be used for school work , gaming , everyday stuff , Photoshop , Adobe Flash Professional CC.Keep in mind this isn't dedicated just to work type programs , Photoshop and flash would just be something on the side.
Games I play - CS:GO , Team Fortress 2 , Minecraft Vanilla & Modded soon , Prison Architect , AC3 , Far Cry 4 and Planetside 2. (will expand my library of games). Haven't experienced any lag or dropped frames , but I probably cant tell.I play all these games on max settings settings.Suggestions on how to monitor frame rates?
The build went smooth just under 3 hours , installed windows 8 then upgraded to windows 10 the next day. The Cooler Master Hyper 103 cpu coolers instructions were pretty unclear but managed with the help of my dad .Couldn't install second fan as there weren't any more power slots on the motherboard.Please help me on how to install the second fan.
Shipping was around $80 total , bought the CPU , HDD , SSD , RAM and OS from Centre Com. Bought the rest except the monitor from CPL. Do not buy from CPL they are pretty terrible and lied to me about my order a couple of times (wasn't shipped for about 2 weeks ). Both orders took it's time getting here. Bought the monitor and sata cable from Dcomp Liverpool.
Best bang-for-buck cpu with a whopping 6 cores (please don't argue) , was in my price range and runs games and applications great. Defienetly a massive step up from a **** apu.
Does the job , good temps , but its a little loud .I dont know if it's that or the case fans.
Great motherboard for me , has everything I require like usb 3.0.I would like to overclock soon.
Got this cheap , its sleek and nice , clocked at 1866.Ram is ram.
Again does the job , only bought it for the OS and a couple games.It's fast.
Used for storing all types of stuff , most reviewed and bought , so i bought this.
This is a budget gard with 4gb , plays every game so far fine.Obviously not the best gpu out there. I originally bought the gigabyte r9 270x 2gb but they were out of stock so they offered me a free upgrade to this card.
Terrible cable management , tried my best.The case itself looks great and its from a reputable company.
Does the job more than enough with 150W to spare , kinda overpriced and should of gone with a cheaper/better psu , oh well.Plus its semi-modular but the mobo power cable is really stiff.
It reads and writes , what more is there to it ?
Hate windows 8 but windows 8.1 is alright next day I upgraded to windows 10.OS is expensive AF
Cools my pc , cheap and is relatively quiet , haven't installed the second one because there is nowhere to put the power on the mobo? HELP?
Bought from a local pc shop , 1080p led and kinda slim. Unfortunately the one I wanted ran out of stock.
Great keyboard especially for the price , doesn't feel or look cheap at all.First gaming keyboard I own and it's great.
This mouse is awesome for $14 , what a bargain.Best mouse my hands have ever touched but then again its my first gaming mouse.You can change dpi on the fly with a button on the mouse!
