This was my first ever build. I recently received an old computer from my uncle (GT 9800 and QuadCore), that happened to have a 1 TB hard drive and a 120 GB SSD. I have always loved playing games but have never had the hardware to experience any graphics better than the intel iGPU. So I set out to build a PC with great bang for buck.
I build the computer back in August, Just pulling the bones for the computer as I saved up for the power supply and graphics card.
I was extremely lucky to get the 670 FTW for only $50 from my school friend who had moved on to a Rx 480.
Then yesterday I installed the graphics card and power supply. I was completely blown away with the results with the computer getting amazing frame rates on rocket league at max settings. The game was absolutely beautiful at 1080p.
My final purchase is to save up and buy overwatch. (The actually main reason that hyped me to build the computer in the first place.)
All I can say is that my money was well spent. (after doing countless odd-jobs for people.)
...Looking forward to the steam sales, when your computer can actually run the games.
EDIT: I refunded the (new) old power supply(thermaltake) for an Antec VP500P v2. Because coil whine. (Probably low quality, the antec is great!)
Two real cores Two virtual cores
What can I say it's the closest thing I'll get to an i5!
It does the job, it was easy to set up. Though it only supports one case fan which is a tad annoying.
1x8gb of ddr4 ram. FOR $39. Solid.
will probably buy more in future for Google Chrome
Decent, got it for free. fast boot times. does the job.
1TB of storage. a little bit loud.
$50 for THIS card. literally a steal. Plays games at max settings 1080p. 11/10
I don't like the color blue (bad for eyes at night). Will change when i have extra money. noisy when at max speed.
Good range of colours. it works. changing displays is a little annoying.
