Part Reviews

Memory

I got this Memory on Amazon last February for only $68 CAD! The only reason why I used this stick. Decent choice for a budget build.

Storage

I don't really know much about hard drives.

Best seller on hard drives.

Probably the most popular and widely used hard drive for budget builds!

It's done a great job on my builds.

Video Card

I think this is the best 1050 Ti you can get on the market.

Before graphics card prices went up, this had the best price to performance ratio and balance in every aspect in my opinion.

EVGA has good warranty and customer service too.

Case

One of the best Micro ATX cases out there for a cheap price.

Pros:

  • Perfect cutouts for cable routing and managing psu cables. Decent space for non modular power supply cables.

  • Clear side panel (for showing off your awesomazing hardware)

  • Comes with 2 case fans. One intake and one outtak.. "exhaust fan"

  • USB 3.0 ports!! (there is 2) plus 2 USB 2.0 ports

  • Left side panel has extra space for cables (yes it matters)

  • Rubber feet

  • Good build quality, even better than some cases $10-20 more expensive tha this one.

Cons:

  • Rosewill's quality control or something like that

  • My case arrived with two oily finger prints on the front panel which was really noticable and impossible to remove without soap + water.

  • One screw hole for the Power Supply mount had a little metal lip that had to be bent as I screw the power supply (minor issue).

  • Thumb screws for the side panel for were so tight and hard to unscrew out of the box.

  • Small rear exhaust fan 80 or 92mm. I wish it had space for at least a 120mm fan mount.

Overall this is a great case if you could get it for around $25 USD or $35 CAD

Power Supply

The best 450W power supply out there if you can get it on sale/deal.

Got mine for $39.99 CAD

Non modular but all cables are sleeved and black.

No more ketchup and mustard colored cables.

Enough for at least an overclocked i7 plus a GTX 1060.

Has everything you need for a budget entry level or mid range system build.

awesome, would be much appreciated! I'm thinking of putting together a gaming HTPC for less demanding eSports titles and these chips seem perfect.

Awesome little budget box. Looks pretty clean. Sucks a 1050 Ti is $200 though. :'(

It was the best video card for an entry level gaming rig until graphic card prices went up :( Managed to get one $10 more than MSRP just last month.

Way to go! I love builds like these. In my opinion, you put all your efforts into the right things. Waiting for sales, not going with a $50 or more case, no extra CPU cooler. Prioritized and you came away with a build that will game in 1080p beautifully. Thumbs up.

Thanks! I'm trying to inspire some people out there who love building computers as well and show that you can still have a nice looking system even on a limited budget. This would have been cheaper if the CPU and Motherboard are on sale but of course they have been released only recently so prices are a bit higher than it should be in my opinion.

For some reason, the cpu snd mobo still doesn't come up on CA.pcpartpicker.

Just had to switch countries to get it to work.

Added - I didn't realize that I had my parts list on private earlier. Does every part show up now? I really would appreciate a reply :)

Looks like your part list is public now. Nice build, first time I've seen that cpu in a build :) It looks similar to the g4560 but 3.7 GHz instead of 3.5

Thanks man. I really appreciate your comment. I'd take your advice for my future builds. I didn't add an SSD on my build. I'm just being really cheap :D but once I get a good deal on an 860 EVO whether its the 250GB or 500GB, I'd grab one for sure. I know it does make a lot of difference in boot times and game loading (I have two on my own gaming rig/PC) but going cheap by not buying an SSD helped me continue do this youtube thing so far. I'll make an improvement on the next build though by adding one. Thanks again!
