Description

This is my first gaming pc. I was on a tight budget and tried to get the best system I could for the budget I was working with. I was going to go with an RX 470 but my friend had a 1050 ti he sold to me for $100 so I went with that. Tried my best to manage these cables but this case made that pretty difficult, I had to just store them in the top right. I'd like to hear suggestions on what I could've done better or what I should upgrade first, thanks.

This is a great budget build, awesome job. You next upgrade should either be a new case or an ssd. Serverus had a good suggestion with a 120gb version, but that might disappear quick so it wouldn't hurt to spend an extra $20 or dollars to get a 240gb version.

Whats wrong with this case? The thermals should be just fine and the case fans for that are pretty quiet.

eh, it seems like a cheap case to me. There's nothing wrong with it at all but I knew a case upgrade could be a cool idea since some people might want something better looking

OMG!! I love it so much!!!! If I was going to build my pc, when Pentiums were out, I would pretty much copy your build. Great Job. What a bang for buck!!!!!!!

Pros Of This Build: -Great CPU -Great Memory -AMAZING GPU/CPU COMBO

Cons Of This Build: -You could have gotten the srm-01 also made by rosewill which has cable management on the other panel and is usually around the same price at $20.99: https://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-Micro-Tower-Computer-SRM-01/dp/B00ZPWOA6I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494218846&sr=8-1&keywords=srm-01 -your psu is fine but for only a couple bucks more, a 600w power supply so there is room for upgrades would have been a better choice: https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-BRONZE-Warranty-Tester-100-B1-0600-KR/dp/B00EON40CS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494218983&sr=8-1&keywords=evga+power+supply

I am doing a similar build to this but i have the case above and an r9 380 from a friend, hope all is well :))

I would suggest upgrading to an i5 in the near future and upgrading to a rx radeon 580 and upgrading to at least 16 gb of ram

That's an awesome budget build! You should consider upgrading to an SSD, you'll get an extremely noticeable speed increases for everything. You got a really good price for the 1050 Ti (if we're talking Canadian Dolens here).

does it have more performance than an Xbox?

you could have added $10 and got the rx 470, or $20 and got the rx 570!!

I said in the description I was planning on getting a rx 470 but my friend sold me a 1050 ti for $100 that he bought a few months ago so I went with that

It might have been cheaper to go with a skylake I3 processor and a cheaper Mother Board without the updated Bios and you get a better CPU.

Very nice budget build. All round good choices and nice matching with very simple Flow. +1

I would have gone with RX 470 at the price point of USD$ 150.00.

Frist Upgrade would be a SSD and small side mounted fan to increase some airflow.

Thanks! I'll look into a new case but this one did the job for now lol. And the next thing I get will be an SSD thanks for the help

I wouldn't touch the case. Your cooling performance should be just fine and i doubt the case gets loud. Only get a new case if the current case will not fit new parts you get.
