I helped my little brother put this together to replace his aging computer. He plays a lot of TF2 and it runs flawlessly. I'm really impressed with the dell monitor. It's IPS and the colors look really good for $120. A lot of the parts were hand-me-downs form some of my previous upgrades, so they don't 100% match what is on the list but it's very close. I'm also very impressed with the Pentium, it's very fast for $60.

I got a lot of the parts at micro-center btw c:

Wow you have a solid computer here for some really good prices! Only price that I feel you were a bit lenient on was the monitor. 21.5 inches for $120 isn't bad, but it isn't the best. Still, $431 well spent my friend.

Yeah, I built one for my sister for her birthday back in October. Felt awesome giving it to her and she uses it every day.

Still a very good build, but I'm pretty sure my lamp could run TF2 flawlessly.

Good on you! +1 Lamps can't multitask, but they might run TF2...

I love IPS monitors. Some of them aren't the first choice for gaming if the response time is too slow, but the two I've had work just fine.

These parts are mostly hand-me-downs from his old computer... its a bit logical if the monitor costed more than the rest of the parts.
