$700 is what I had, so I decided to make the best of it by building my 2017 rig.
I took the photos outside, and tried to manage my cables as best as I could. The case I used was not easy to work with. With little to no cable management options, I basically stuck all the excess cables behind the case. These photos were taken on my Google Pixel, in case you were wondering. Enjoy!
Probably the best 8 core CPU for my budget.
Great Price for the features!
8GB is plenty for me, as I am not a huge multitasker.
Basic Hard Drive, would have gotten an SSD if they weren't crazy expensive. Needed 1TB though.
Best GPU for gaming in 1080p and maybe 1440p.
Little to no cable management options
Maybe overkill for me but it does what it needs to do.
