ive been playing consoles all my life and to be perfectly honest i got sick of feeling like i wasnt getting exactly what i wanted like i always had to live by someone elses rules.. so i started watching youtube videos of all the popular computer tech youtubers. such as austin evans, linus tech tips, jayz2cents, and a few others, but watching those is what got me hooked on the idea to build my own..
ive never messed with computers in my life besides when i was like 10 and downloading demos off the internet threw a 56k modem playing diablo 2 haha those were the days.. then when i turned about 18 i bought my first desk top which was a dell and it was right when the quad cores first came out and i tried playing a few games like doom 3 and what not and it ran like crap, but i was ignorant back then and tried playing it with on board graphics lol...
so here i am 27 and wanting to build a computer from scratch i didnt want to spend more then $500 because if i royally messed something up on a $1000 rig i would of been super pissed lol. so anyways heres my build im looking forward to hearing your guys "and gals" input on my build in general and my part choices like will i be able to over clock at all on this mobo or not lol :P
the first up grades i see myself doing tho is new hard drive i salvaged the dvd rom and hard drive for this build out of an old dell inspiron lol
works great for the price im pretty happy with it, havent tried over clocking yet tho
ive had no issues with it very happy with it havent tried any over clocking with this board tho so who knows lol
its ram and it works cant complain, and i think the heat sink looks pretty cool
over all pretty happy with it, bought this card before i knew about the 4 gig version for only like $30 more but i have had zero issues with it. the fan can get pretty loud when its at 100% speed but it has never gone higher then 50% while gaming..
on another point i really like the way this cooler looks love the white and red
its a case and it holds everything i bought it because it was cheap and you get what you pay for its cheesy looking...
but as far as the fit and finish it seems well build for $40.. there isnt a ton of room for cable management in the back but it works..
works very good for the price it was the cheapest 80+ cert power supply i could find that was made by a good company so i bought it plain and simple
