Description

This is my first build ever! I planned a budget build over 4 years ago(because at the time I can't spend a lot of money into a computer and I wanted to feel how gaming in a pc was) and never actually finish it(because things happens). The case and power supply was the first thing I bought and was never been used in 4 years and they turned on without a problem. (Yeah 4 years). When I was deciding into build this system I was thinking to get a Pentium, but I thought that someday I will upgrade and I had to sell the old processor and I thought that was better getting an i3, because the resell value is better.(and I wasn't wrong I sold the processor for the same amount I paid). The motherboard was the cheapest I can find and the ssd too.(Believe me everything was in a tight budget) The graphic Card was a 1050ti Zotac mini(not because I liked it, just cuz I needed one and locally I find it at 120$ so I bought it) I had everything but y'all know I'm missing something essential: the ram ( I forgot buying the ram and literally I didn't had more money on my account and I had to sell an old phone just to get that Ballistix) and now I had to wait 3-4 days to get the parts. (I was soo happy)

Well when the parts arrive I remembered I talked with my best friend that had a pre builded system to see if he wanted to help me and obviously he said yes, but the hype was real so I thought, let me try and build it myself and I will later save all the parts so I know what Im going to do. Well I broke a capacitor (Yeah I'm soo lucky) So I had to wait like 3 days for getting a new board and build the system( yeah my friend helped me and both we're hyped and all) Till this day(that was like 4 months ago was one of the best things I had done on my life. I enjoy building pc's. (I already builded a new completed system)

Thanks for reading!

Congratulations! That case was one of the first ones I built in too, and it made it really easy. The excitement feeling you have is da best. Enjoy the PC.

This is an amazing budget build but with my budget build I had only $230 to work with which isn't easy when it comes to building luckily my local Microcenter has a DIY shelf with clearance items and I was able to fully build my pc that I still use to this day for 3 years now. I got my psu at a yard sale for $10 and it has yet to fail me. I have put at least $300 into the build itself over the last 3 years and I am upgrading as I go until I decide to build another one. I might even build using your budget build list due to the fact that it's a good budget build and I can always improve it as I need to.
