My name is Joey, and I am new to PC building. I have always found interest in building my own computer, since I was 14, but never had the money to do so. I now am 18 with 2 jobs and decided to save up some cash from tips, and build a budget gaming PC. Please leave me comments about what your opinion is on the parts, my cable management, questions about why I got these parts, what you would recommend instead of what I got, etc. I got this all for around $700, found good bundle deal at micro center, and most of the items I got were on sale at the time.
Sorry about the horrible picture quality.
CPU: Like I said this was a budget build, had to go with a cheaper CPU, but don't be fooled by the price, works great ! just don't use the stock cooler, they're really loud under load.
MOBO: Asus seems to be most peoples recommendation, so I went with this, it had great reviews and it was on sale for $50.
CPU cooler: I had the stock cooler on, and it was way too loud, so I got this on sale and its really nice. I've only had it in for a day and I can't here it at all, have to check sometimes if its even on.
RAM: 8GB, nothing else to say
HDD: again, 1tb of storage, nothing really to say. Its really fast.
Graphics cards: Loving this GPU, runs Fallout 4 on ultra at 60fps, thats good enough for me.
Power Supply: EVGA, 500w, 80 plus bronze, nothing else to say, had good reviews and comes with a nice warranty.
Others: OS is nice, I like windows 10, its weird to adjust to, windows 7 user, but its way nicer then windows 8. WNA is really good, would recommend. OD because I like making CD's for friends and my girlfriend.
