Description

My co-worker/friend finally wanted a desktop so they can do more things then there tablet could ever do...

So, with having a $500 limit and what we wanted in a system... This is what I came up with.

you could've saved money if you went for a stock heatsink, and gotten an i3 instead. also i think 8 GB of RAM seems better. I'm just trying to say you could've gotten better value out of the $500 price limit, but seeems neat.

i agree with the kabylake pentiums, but he has a skylake pentium, which is still 2 cores/2 threads

When I was building this system, the G4560 wasn't released. We plan to order one soon.

At the time of building, they weren't released yet. We're going to be ordering one soon.

16 GB of ram is not overkill, however he could have gone with less and put the money towards something else

I think this build is INDESTRUCTIBLE!

Could have used the stock heatsink - it's really not that bad. Also, why the VelociRaptor? It's loud, power hungry, hot and not as fast as a decent SSD. Oh and better get that Windows 10 key out - PCPP doesn't play well with pirated keys.

Not a terrible build though, better than many others.

OK. So we've bought the G4560 and a Zotac GeForce GTX 660 Synergy Edition card. We paid $62 for the cpu and $65 for the GFX card.
