Description

I had someone contact me about a computer I had up for sale that he wanted to use to run triple monitors for general productivity. I told him I could build something more suited for his needs for cheaper, and I started working on this.

The first thing I needed to find was a nice, cheap graphics card that would be able to push 3 screens, and I just happened to have one lying around. I had bought a motherboard/CPU/RAM combo from someone on craigslist a while ago and he threw it in for free since he didn't need it. Little did I know it was able to push 3 screens!

The SSD and the PSU were no-brainers, so I had to search for the rest of the core components. I wanted something that would last quite a while, so I went on the search for a nice quad core i5. I found the CPU, MOBO, and RAM on eBay for $165, which was a great deal.

Otherwise, assembly went perfectly fine without any issues and he's very satisfied with the performance!

Part Reviews

Motherboard

Very detailed BIOS. Plenty of options. Definitely a professional-oriented board.

Storage

High-quality SSD for a good price.

Video Card

This card has way more than meets the eye. For around $20 on eBay you can have a GPU capable of pushing out triple monitors without breaking a sweat!

Drivers work flawlessly with Windows 10.

Case

No room for managing cables behind the motherboard tray, but otherwise a pretty quality case. The fan included is Molex which works fine, but swapping it out for a 3 or 4 pin wouldn't hurt.

I have a TEAM 240GB SSD in the list. You can't see it in any of the pictures because it's mounted in the drive bays.
