Description

all of the parts with no price i got used for £140

cpu: i was surprised with how this could go to 4ghz and runs ok in a lot of games like gta iv

cpu cooler: i got this new before i got it the cpu was running 60 at load not is ony around 35 !!!!!!!

motherboard : it old but does the job

ram: i need to go to 8gb soon

gpu: again i was amazed with how tis ram with a 20% oc i got like 50fps on gta iv at high

overall i was amazed with this computer it cost me very little and i can play most game

If you save up enough you could probably add a decent GPU like 260X or a GTX 750 (or 750 Ti) and let you play GTA5 at higher fps.

+1 for recycling!!!

Also, update your prices. You say you only spent 130 (I think thats Euros), we wanna see where that money went, and the kind of deals you were able to get.

BTW, your cable management puts 90% of all builds on here to shame (including mine).

Don't let the negative comments get to ya. You did good.

Also, how were you able to OC that i3? I may learn something new today...

thanks it was £220 and i was surprised to see it unlocked . to oc i just changed the BCLK frequency from 135 to 165

ahhh. thats right, the BCLK F. Depending on the board, you could go as high as 200, but the thermals might be a bit much, even for that wicked cooler.

I'd take a powerful dual core over a weaker quad any day :D GJ.

Well I'm impressed with the price of the build, with that 6770 I think you're going to have a problem playing most new games. However, you have very neat cable management. +1

Great cable management but I think you could do better for how much you spent.

How is that kingston SSD working out for ya? I heard of some issues with the 5.0.6 firmware that drops the read/writes to just barely over a mechanical drive (100-120mb/s)

I'd run a crystalmark test, just to be sure you're getting the advertised speeds.

Unfortunately, I agree. The only saving grace is the well-managed cables in a case with absolutely no cable management options.

Dude, it's mostly recycled. Just because you aren't seeing high-end parts doesn't make it bad. Some people just don't have the flow to drop on a 300$ CPU or GPU.

The 6770 is a little underpowered for today's games, but you should be able to get playable framerates if you drop the settings to minimum and play @ 720p.

This is a really balanced (budget) build.
