Description

I really like building these low cost, high performance budget builds for my local community. I get to tinker with a pc build and at the same time, I get to convert someone new to the pc master race! It's definitely good to get involved that way. More of these types of builds to come!

I always liked to see the really cheap budget builds over the the expensive builds.

It's definitely rewarding to see someone who normally couldn't afford a decent pc, get a chance to enjoy pc gaming. It's what motivates me!

It's a ride when building your own PC. I think the cheaper ones are the best because it really is unique in that you can get the best price-performance than most other computers while not having to drop as much money. I don't even think you could purchase a console for $325. I mean an intel core i5 processor, 8gb, 250gb of storage, and a 1050 ti should be enough to run any game at 1920 x 1080.

Sandy Bridge is so good.

Was the last time I actually felt good about giving intel some money...

Such a great value for the money. I should just build something like this for fun as an HTPC.

I'm always having people ask me for super budget build. I am not experienced with Sandy's bridge.. It can still hold up? And where are you buying your 1155 parts?

That's good to know. Thank you. Where did you buy your motherboard and cpu from?

Got it for free from my Grandfather's old pc. It works like a charm with 16gb of ddr3 he had as well. He planned to move away from this pc as he didn't use it much and he had a 6 core xeon rig he used over this one.

I get my cpus from auctions and companies who upgrade. Alot of time they are throwing whole pcs in the trash! Motherboards usually come from ebay, and the rest usually comes from local shops and second hand selling walls.
