Description

So I had some parts around and got some good deals so I decided to build a small form factor budget system. Here it is. I call it Domino Candy. Because it's small, black & white, and has colors.

Yeah, I know, I am not the most creative.

But I made a video!! https://youtu.be/AON65kkRkV8

Nice small form build! I remember you from your "On The Wall" feature build.

Why not? It runs very well for things like Overwatch, PUBG, GTA5, Fortnite. Besides, I had it on hand. And I'm just going to sell it off for cheap to some neighborhood kid who wants a nice little rig to get started.

It depends on what you're trying to do with it. If expectations are kept within reason of the CPU then you're good. If you're trying 1440p gaming you're gonna have issues. If you're trying to run trash settings on all games you're gonna have issues. If you're trying to play some high requirement AAA game title you're experience will be poor. But at 1080p with many games I have not seen any issues as long as the display settings are set reasonably and per game. I do reach 100% CPU usage and that's okay as long as I'm not trying to push past what the system can handle. I threw a mild overclock on it today and got 60+ fps in 1080p on several popular games. I did have to play a bit with video settings a but on each if them to reach a good balance. It also held it's own on a few benchmarks. This is not a super machine by any standards but it's a pretty sweet little rig for a kid just starting out, wants to try some overclocking and have a decent upgrade path.
