Description

My brother wanted a good gaming PC for a long time. After the prices for GPUs came down a bit we just bought the whole. First we planned to use some used parts but that idea ended not so good. (The case was just 0.5cm to small in height to fit the graphicscard properly) Also we received a bad mainboard which stopped working after the Win10 Installation. The SSD and HDD i had laying around but the rest was bought for the listed prices.

I chose the CPU because he said he wanted to record some of his gameplay and it was really cheap compared to Intel CPUs.

The GPU was just the only good custom design in this price range and dropped in price for just a few hours.

Part Reviews

Memory

Its good looking, cheap and well performing. It works even doe its not officially supported by my motherboard.

Storage

Awesome SSD for the money. I think most people wont even notice the difference between this and a much more expensive SSD.

Video Card

A good combination of size and performance its also really quiet.

Case

Not really my case most loved case and the cable routing space is a little to small. For the price its ok and has the interior of many much more expensive Cases.

Power Supply

Quiet Semi-Modular PSU which is really good
