Description

My current PC, was first built in March 2016 but most of the parts except for the drives and PSU since then have been replaced/upgraded (original build here).

I had originally intended my first build to have an i5 and R9 280/380 at the time. I gradually got everything but the core components, but since it would take too long... I got cheap temporary parts like a Pentium G4400 and 750ti among others just to get it up and running. Since then I've upgraded most of it and the old parts were put towards building a living room PC shown here.

I named it "Fighting Computer" after Warsman, a Soviet cyborg from Kinnikuman (predecessor to what's known stateside as Ultimate Muscle) who bears the same nickname.

Part Reviews

CPU

A lot better than the Pentium I was using.

Motherboard

Had some trouble setting things up in the BIOS at first since I didn't realize it had both the onboard audio and PCi Graphics turned off at first for some reason, but it's fine now.

Video Card

Bought it when it's brand new, it's on par with the 970 and is even better at DX12 and Vulkan.

Great choice on the CPU. I was tearing myself between the unlocked version and this one and for my needs, the 6500 does the job

You should probably move those RAM sticks to slots A2 and B2, or slots 2 and 4, depending on how they're labelled in your motherboard's manual. Otherwise, you won't be getting proper Dual-Channel memory functionality. Otherwise, nice and respectable build!

I moved them long ago actually, haven't updated the pictures.
