Description

I recreated the specs of the pre-built that I bought from Amazon several years ago. Pretty much used entirely for gaming but I do a little bit of video editing on it.

Might actually upgrade it again one day but right now I'm planning a new computer build to replace this one with a $2,000 budget.

UPDATE 11/29/2019: My new computer is finally complete, so once I get Wi-Fi again I can move things over to that one and retire this one as my primary computer.

Part Reviews

CPU

It plays games pretty decently so it's still good.

Motherboard

Not much to say about it other then I wish I had a better motherboard with more DIMM slots and the ability to do Crossfire.

Memory

It works like it's supposed to.

Storage

Very reliable hard drive for me. Too bad I've used up 99% of the available space on it.

Video Card

Runs really hot under full load (90 degrees Celsius average) and is starting to fall behind modern graphics cards in terms of performance in games. The base clock on the product page is lower than the base clock on my R9 280X though, so maybe that's why.

Case

Fairly portable but mine gets really dusty so I have to clean it eventually. Mine has the iBUYPOWER logo on it since the computer is a pre-built using this case.

Power Supply

Mine has lasted about 3 years so far so it's reliable at the moment. Also the cables are sleeved.

Optical Drive

Reads and writes disks, just like it is supposed to do.

Operating System

Windows 7 is fantastic, even if Home Premium limits you to 16 GB of RAM.

Monitor

If you don't mind 60 Hz then this monitor is perfect.

EDIT: I just realized that it says it has HDMI when mine clearly doesn't.

Keyboard

It works great for me but sometimes the lights on the keyboard won't light up for stuff like caps lock and the RGB won't always work. Usually fixed by simply unplugging and plugging it back in.

As far as I'm aware it didn't come with any dust filters.

But the case I ordered for my next computer does have dust filters, so hopefully I don't have to deal with this again.
