Hi, I'm a 16 year old who decided to switch from PS4 to PC. I always was apart of the master race and have had a Steam account for 8 years now, but I wanted a PS4 to play with my friend. My last PC died out from old age, it was a Q6600 and a 8800GTS. I had been using it for like 4 years until it died.
The 750Ti was handed down to me for free from my grandad and the HDD was also handed down to me but by my dad. I have yet to have any problems with them yet.
I built this machine all by myself after 6 months of collecting money and research. I was so out of date with computer components that I watched at least 200+ videos on what to get.
The case I'm using is the Antec P160 anodized aluminum case. Old and has no room for cable management.
The i5-7500 was a great deal at the time and managed to buy it for 10$ less than the i5-6500, you can never go wrong with an Intel processor.
The MSI B250 PC MATE is an easy to use motherboard and has plenty of fan headers and a decent layout. The BIOS is pretty good too. Good job MSI, overall happy with the quality.
RAM is RAM
Yet to experience problems with booting up, and boots up incredibly fast.
The GTX 750Ti used to be a fantastic card and still is but it's outdated and its price is too high for such an old card considering outher cards like the 1050(Ti). That doesn't take away from its performance though, it still is a fantastic card if you find it for 90$ or under. But I'm lucky and managed to get it for free from my grandad since he got a 1070.
I'm giving it a 3 star for its price and that this specific model used a mini HDMI, like what the heck? Come one PNY!
The EVGA PSU has great build quality but since it's not modular it hinders my cable management. Otherwise still a great PSU.
