I have decided to post this build, that is mostly being abused as a WoW machine by my younger brother. It is quite a funny coincidence because today I saw this video of linus (well known tech youtuber) building the same pc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1JA24KCAjE The used parts for this PC were all bought within the last year. None of those parts were bought new.
CPU: The Q6600 still performs well enough in most games. It struggles in BF4 on a 64player server(as you would expect) even when i threw in my r9 290x and turned mantle on it did not help much(32 Player servers run Smoothly btw.). I oced it to 2.7 ghz but I did not touch the voltage (could not find the option on this board). Cpu is great For WoW
Cooler: Works. I keep it at 1400rpm max.
MOBO: So far so good. I guess i can not complain for the price i got it. Has only 2 sata ports:(. Looks so tiny with the gtx 580 installed.
Case: Got it for free. The case is very sturdy and solid butthe side panel is missing, still trying to find out a solution, any suggestions what i could use as a sidepanel.
Ram: Is doing ine doing fine. 4gb seems not to be a limiting factor in World of Warcraft. Getting some Hickups in dying light because of ram limitations but for this budget i can not complain.
GPU: A bit overkill but at least i put it to good use. It was in my main rig an got replaced by a 290x. Only problem with this card is that it requies a beefy PSU.
PSU: I was so happy to find this on the internet barely used. With a bit of haggling i got a reasonable price. A psu with great reviews. Being used in many builds. Sleeved cables. inaudible at idle. I do not have to worry about burning my house down.
HDD: not much to say. It holds the os+games and boots up pretty quickly.
What do you think guys? Will Linus and Luke come up with something better than me?
*Benchmarks will be uploaded later. Or just ask me how a particular game runs.
