Last time I built a computer was a year ago when I was only 12 now i'm 13! This is my second computer built and i'm hoping to do a 3rd! (Spoiler: should have an i5 2400/2500 and the other r9 270 :D)
ALL PRICES ARE IN CANADIAN also I didn't check any temps cause this computer is now sold! (Our dollar sucks hahaha)
Getting into the parts and why I choose them:
CPU: I got the intel core i3-2100 and the stock cooler for $60, I really wish I had gone with the i5-2400/i5-2500 because it's a quad core, it's a lot better and because it won't bottleneck the gpu. I overpaid for this cpu but It's still an okay cpu.
MOTHERBOARD: No one was a selling a cheap lga1155 motherboard so I get this one for brand new for $70, has everything I need except usb 3.0
RAM: I actually have this ram in my pc and I love it. Got it for $40 cheap and affordable ram , although I could have maybe bargained with him and asked for 35.
GRAPHICS CARD: I got 2 asus r9 270's for 170!! Best deal yet hahaha, I'm saving the other r9 270 for another budget build :D Awesome little card for it's price and beats the 750ti.
CASE: Got this case brand new for only $25, awesome little case, the only con about it is that it has no cable management.
PSU: Discontinued power supply but I got it used for $10!! What an absolute steal! Has a 20+4 pin connector, 6 pin pcie connecter and also a 4+4 cpu connecter. Couldn't ask for more.
HDD: I was going to get a 500gb 7200 rpm drive but decided on the used 1TB, the 5900RPM Isn't the fastest but I can live with it.
I had some extra blue leds some I decided to put it in here and I also got a usb 3.0 to 2.0 adapter to hook it up to the case which is usb 3.0. Overall I'm happy about this pc but just wish I got a faster cpu cause there is a bottleneck with the i3-2100 and r9 270. These prices are all in canadian and if you turn it into us it only costs $250us. I recently just sold this computer and I plan on building another budget computer with the money I got. Enjoy :D
