So I've been wanting to build a computer for quite some time now, probably 4 years to be exact. About a month before Christmas i was given the task to build a computer for a presentation in class. I decided i was finally going to build a computer. So i got to doing my research and finally got all the parts together on this list. Currently I have the case (Rosewill RANGER-M MicroTX Mini Tower) Motherboard (Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-H Micro ATX FM2+) WiFi adapter (Rosewill RNX-N150PCe PCI-Express x1 802.11b/g/n) And the monitor (Sceptre E225W-1920 22.0" 1920x1080 60Hz) Waiting on other parts to arrive then i will update. Spent like $400 on parts btw.
The power supply and ram came in the mail today. I installed them and then read some comments about the power supply i have not going over too well. All i can say is that i will be replacing it with a nicer one when i get the money. The ram looks really cool and now the computer turns on but i still do not have the processor. I should be getting the processor before January 6th.
I have decided i really need to get a new psu. i cannot afford this computer blowing up. if someone could link me to a psu for $30 and under (shipping included) it would be greatly appreciated.
Okay so all the parts are here and i have them in the pc. it runs really smoothly and i can play almost all the games i have like they are nothing. GTA V runs perfect. for a budget build i think i did good for the performance. will be updating pictures later.
I ended up not using the cpu fan so i am going to save it for a future build. The wraith cooler that comes with the pc keeps the cpu well more than cool. If i turn the fan all the way up and let the pc idle for about 5 minutes the temperature can go down to -5C (Not completely sure if that is correct) I have all the fans on normal and they are all pretty quiet. can hear it very faintly (barely) if i dont have my headset on. I really like this pc. I feel that it is a great starter build. Might buy GPU in the future but for now it runs everything i want it to. Thanks for all the constructive criticism btw ( not sarcasm )
This processor is truly amazing for the price. the graphics runs smoothly on GTA V. use high frequency ram because the integrated graphics use ram installed in the board.
can't access bios?
I'm guessing this was a good price at the time i got this ($53) not too sure but does what its supposed to do.
I mean what more can you ask of a hard drive?
Great for the price is all i can say. Bought this when it was $24. It has reasonable cable management but is a little flimsy. As long as you aren't bringing it places a lot this is the case for you if you want a budget build.
Wireless Network Adapter
could be better but what more can you ask of $12?
Very Very Very good for the price. he monitor looks amazing for only $60 and it's 1080p! all i can say is that there is one tiny tiny dead pixel that is barely even noticeable. If you are on a budget this is an amazing monitor for the price!
