Description

This was a build that I did for a friend who wanted a PC to play Fortnite on for cheap! The PC is made up of mostly used parts and I have included the prices that I paid for the parts! Overall, the PC is great for 1080p gaming and is perfect for the needs of my friend! RGB fans and CPU cooler are off brand from ALiexpress but work great. The i5-2500k has been sat at between 19-24 degrees. Motherboard is also incorrect but my option wasn't on here! Motherboard I got was a GIGABYTE GA-PA65-UD3-B3 (rev. 1.0).

Only thing I dislike about it, is that you can't change the colour of the RGB fan on the CPU cooler, so it kinda ruins the colour of the build. I am waiting for a red LED fan to come so that I can replace it. Other than that, no real issues. I really enjoyed the hunting for second hand parts and getting some at really good prices.

Heck of a build for the money. Smoking deal on the RX 570. It really is incredible what you can get for the money right now if you are willing to go with used parts. And you didn't abandon the aesthetics, which is nice to see at this price point.

I have the same video card, but I bought mine new and didn't get nearly as good a deal as you did (though it was still a good price at the time). That darn blue light annoys the heck out of me. I also have a black and red build (I have pics if you want to check it out), and I used tweezers to put a piece of electrical tape over the back of the LED on the PCB, but darned if it doesn't shine through. Oh well...can't win 'em all. :)

Hello! would you know if i can run the game "Rust" on this PC? (if yes arround how many FPS?)

From what I have researched, Rust on the highest graphics settings would get between 45-60 fps at 1080p. For 60+ fps, you would need to drop the settings down a bit.

There's that big of a difference between the 1060 6GB and the RX 570 4GB? I can run Rust at 2560x1080 at 75.

Takes a lot of patience. I look several times a day on the newly listed items on eBay. Someone was selling one for £29 Buy Now and I snapped it up!
