I first saw the light of Gaben when I discovered the Skyrim modding community. Ever since then, I strive to let Gaben's awesomeness flow through my valves.

Forgive me brothers, for I have blaspheme you and Gaben.

I was "gaming" on a Dell Inspiron laptop with Intel HD Graphic

Thus, I deceived my parents into buying the parts for this build on the false premise that it was for educational purposes (I'm 15)

The ritual was easier than I thought, it took about 1-2 hours.

Just a lot of plugins and screwings.

I expected Gaben to test my troubleshooting skill but the ritual ran smoothly.

It was a blessing.

So I ask you, Gabenites of the Holy Site of pcpartpicker, bless me with your wise comments.

May my PC stays cool, and my fps high.

I bet your hoping your parents never see this?

tyceus submitter 1 Build 17 points 51 months ago

They're vietnamese immigrants, they can't read English.

kilpatrick5 1 point 51 months ago

That could come in really handy.

tyceus submitter 1 Build 2 points 51 months ago

Yes it does, I can lie to them at parent-teacher meetings (I don't because I'm an A(sian)+ student), I can talk about inappropriate things with my friends infront of them, and they can't find what I'm doing on the Internet. But it does have its of drawbacks, I have to go with EVERYWHERE with them to translate EVERYTHING!

NIMJA124 1 point 21 months ago

Damn, now i wish i had asian parents who cant read english. Would have saved my *** as a kid so many times

Does that mean you can watch **** in text and they will never know?You could even tell them that you are studying

Noising 6 points 51 months ago

+1 for the description.

vvoozie 3 Builds 1 point 51 months ago

Agreed. I actually lol'd.

Veizin 2 Builds 5 points 51 months ago

+1 for the build. +1 for the description. +1 for the cable management. +1 For using the anti-static wrist.

Your GPU seems to be sagging a bit. I routed my GPU cable just above the GPU so that the cable was actually supporting part of the weight/pulling the GPU a bit up to counter the sag of today's massive GPUs.

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

Thanks for the tip and upvote. I'll see if I can route my cables under the GPU.

Veizin 2 Builds 1 point 51 months ago

I'm sorry, I my sentence wasn't very clear there. Route the cable above the GPU - through the whole in the case, through which you've routed the 24pin cable for the Motherboard. Then pull the cable gently from the left side of the case so that it pulls the GPU slightly upwards. A weak pull/tension did the trick for my GPU.

You're welcome for the upvote, you earned it.

Nice poem. +1

Roberto 1 Build 2 points 43 months ago

So how the Motherboard and cpu go for you any bios updates?

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

No BIOS update require. They're compatible out of the box.

For on this day we celebrate a new comer to the master race, the new order. This is the time of the Gaben Nation for we the true gamers are rewarded for our alliance to our electrical devices.

Let us not say grace but HEIL GABEN

angryhedgehog345 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

lol awesome description and a sweet little budget build. What operating system are you running? I think you could have saved some money by getting a cheaper power supply and case fan. The power supply is a great supply just saying you could have gotten higher than 500W for that price or another 500W for cheaper. Looks great also good cable management. You could have also gone with a aftermarket cpu cooler because amd needs to stay cool and if your ever going to overclock your going to need better than stock(even though aftermarket coolers are a pain to install). Overall....i like it....May your devotion to Gaben never waver!

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

I'm running Windows 8.1 Embedded Industry Pro which I got through Dreamspark. I did saw some cheaper 500w psu by Rosewill, but I felt like I trusted Corsair more and I wanted a modular psu. I didn't get an aftermarket cpu cooler because I don't plan over clocking right now. Thanks for your feedback.

angryhedgehog345 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

Yea corsair does make great psu's I got my psu from evga which is pretty good quality and was around 40 although it wasn't modular(which wasn't a problem cause i used all of the cords but one.) you welcome and good luck with skyrim and the like! :D

rikku 2 Builds 1 point 51 months ago

Awesome budget build, cable management is pretty good. I also like the lighting. Window looks cool too. Definitely +1 for the name and description.

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

Cable management did not live up its hype of being "so hard, perfecting it, is an art". All I had to do is bunch them together and zip-tied them!

Aelon51 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

Very clean, great parts value, description made me laugh. Very nice. :P

satupled66 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

Awesome description! +1 for the lolz! When you decide to upgrade the next 2 things you should buy are:

  1. SSD: you will notice the difference, it is a really good upgrade for a not so expensive price.

  2. RAM: running your computer like it is right now, is called single channel. Get another RAM module (preferably the same you are using right now) and put it where your motherboard specifies as double channel

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

I'll definitely upgrade to a SSD, but I don't think I'll be upgrading the RAM, I think 8GB is enough for a long time.

satupled66 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

That's good to know, and yes indeed, 8 GB are more than enough, what I meant was that working in dual channel is really an awesome improvement. For example, you could sell that 8 GB ram and buy a two pack 4 GB ram which is the same amount of ram but meant to work in dual channel(same model and manufacturer even) and the performance of the computer would have a noticeable improvement

Rollin489 1 point 51 months ago

This is like the quintessential budget build. Everything is of good quality and nice bang for your buck components. This is very close to the budget build i was going to do until i decided to break the bank a bit. Anyone looking for an introduction into PC gaming on a budget can pretty much mirror this build.

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

What really? This is my first build, I must have made some financial mistake. I initially aimed for a ~$500 build.

IrshaadH 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

haha, nice build, title and description. This pc should last you a good while and there is plenty of room for upgrading with that AM3+ socket.

You should consider putting a dust filter on that side panel grill. The last thing you want are dust bunnies clogging up the airflow in your case.

tyceus submitter 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

I have a dust filter on my intake fan and the intake fan is running at a higher RPM than the exhaust fan so air shouldn't be coming through any holes or opening in the case.

yumi1996 1 Build 1 point 51 months ago

Well, you bought AMD, so cool may be out of the question.

In the name of our holy lord GabeN, i bless thy computer with Crysis 3 crushing fps

While I'm not an adherent of GabeNism, I really like your psalm. Hard to believe they used to ship FX processors with such tiny heatsinks.

AntonBurkovetskiy -1 points 51 months ago

uplay is better

MasterOfPC 1 Build 4 points 51 months ago

Hehe NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Uplay takes up cpu usage while in games plus only has ubisoft games (I Think) Steams way better and has more games.

I chose the Double Dissipation card not by its looks but it is good looking, very sleek and minimalistic. Thanks for the +1!
