Here is the youtube video about small blue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6z-Pksvq-g

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

It amazes me, a lot of the OEM PC's out there like DELL, HP, etc. at this same prices point can't provide this kind of performance. This build shows its best to build your own. Nice!

Very nice build here, such a steal on that cpu and gpu(s) (especially considering your dollar value)! Although, if you got the two 270 for 160$ why did you list a single one for 85$? XD that bugs me a little. Anyway, you should wait to build with the 860k unless you can get it used for cheap (along a mobo) and you plan to sell that too, around the end of may/start of june AMD should present their new line of AM4 motherboards along another refresh of the Carrizo family (which is similar to the 860k/a10-7850k family, just a bit refined and for mobile market). If you can get your hands on one of these new chips, assuming pricing will be similar, you should have slightly higher performance (nothing mindblowing) but a much better upgrade path.
