Description

My current PC, was first built in March 2016 but most of the parts except for the drives and PSU have since then been replaced/upgraded throughout the year (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... some of which are currently in my living room PC build shown here.

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

Part Reviews

CPU

A lot better than the Pentium I was using.

Motherboard

Probably because I bought mine used, but the onboard audio died in a little over 2 years of having it.

Video Card

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

Case

It's a good case for the price but it's a real pain to open the front panel.

Power Supply

Bought it when it was on sale for $57 or so, more than what I'd need but a very solid PSU nonetheless.

Speakers

Good for my purposes.

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.
