If I were you, I would have gotten an i5 and less ram to make room for a GTX 10 series GPU. You'd probably see a greater performance gain that way with the money spent. But your build will definetely last a long time. No upgrades for a while.
Congrats on your first build! Looks good!
You did a great job picking parts for your first build. Nice work! You might want to check that CPU cooler though.
Very nice and clean build without spending thousands. Awesome work!
Definitely upgrade the GPU first. The Pentium should be able to hold up for at least a little while longer. The gpu will make much more of a difference.
Get the 950/60 or even the new RX 460/70. All under $200.
I'd say the upgrade order should be GPU, SSD, CPU, RAM, PSU.
I got three, better watch out.
Show us some more pictures!
Perfect build. You definitely got the best value for all of your parts. Nicely done! That thing will run like a dream.
Super cool. That thing will be blazing fast for everyday use. nice work!
Great parts for the price. Those Athlon chips still pack a punch! You don't need an all intel build to have a good pc!
No shame in your cable management. It's your first build and cable management doesn't effect your temps too much anyway. You got some nice parts for the price! Good build!
Looks great! You did a great job picking out good parts for the price. Looks awesome! If you don't like the way that cooler looks, just replace that tan fan with a while one. It'll make the computer look so much better.
Such a cool case mod
Yeah, it would have probably been around 150 if it had an HDD with Windows 7 installed. Still an awesome price. I'm pretty happy about it!
I'll probably put in my 960 once I replace it in my main build.
Nope, most of it's parts are long gone. they're all scattered through a bunch of other computers I've built. The only part I still have from it is the power supply, HDD and ram, haha. Oh, and a green case fan I added in later.
I got a Vostro 400 kinda like that. I'll be putting that up on the site soon.
As for the keyboard, those things last forever. I have a soft spot in my heart for those trusty Dells.
I used to be a Razer fanboy. I kinda regret it but the mouse shown in the last picture has done me really well. Still using it today.
I would take a picture if I could. Like I said, this build was made a while ago and I never thought of getting any good pics.
If only I still had some pictures. This computer is long gone, hahah. Imagine a bunch of cables stuffed in a corner.
Gorgeous desk setup dude
Wow, fantastic build for not too much over $1000. Do you think a 500W could handle the load?
Fantastic build for the price. Nice work!
I'm building a computer for a friend. They want it super super cheap and I was thinking about the A6. Good to hear it runs source games well.
Cable management was not the best but with that case and power supply there really isn't much more you could have done.
I know you're trying to wait to find a better graphics card, but sometimes it's better just to go for it and buy one now. A lot of people get caught in a cycle of waiting for the next best thing to come out and when you think about it, there's always gonna be a better deal somewhere down the line.
If you really want to start gaming right now, I'd go get a nice card like a 970, 80, or even better. Those should be able to do VR pretty well.
But if you wanna wait, that's cool too and it might be worth it. If I were you, I'd get a graphics card now so I can start gaming.
Sweet rig so far! +1
Nice work for a first build! That i7 will last forever.
Awesome work! What kind of led strips did you use and how much did they cost you? I'm thinking about putting some in my build.
Those prices are absoulutely insane. Wow.
That is one impressive build. It looks $3000+. Perfect specs, and excellent liquid cooling for the price.
Wow, absolutely beautiful build for a great price and great parts. AND your first build? Wow.
Nice work, nice parts, nice picture. +1
Was the case okay to build in?
Wow, I just looked through those pictures while listening.
That was an experience.
I was wondering too, I was thinking about getting two of them.
