Description

This is my very first PC build (I have built two PC's for my college, but I wont count that). I don't have an OS yet, nor do I have any PC games other than FEAR (2005 game) and Rocket League that came with the GPU. So, this means I haven't tested it yet, but I plan to download demos for popular titles if you guys want to get a good idea of how this rig works. I mainly plan to use this PC for programming and other college things. Also, I need to update drivers and clock memory to correct speed as BIOS states my memory is 2133 mhz (Lol), not 3200 when my mobo supports 3000.

I bought a Logitech G105 keyboard on sale for $22 at Wal-Mart and I have had the Steel Series 100 mouse since 6 months ago, but I won't include this in the price. The TV I used to test this is my brother's since I do not yet have a monitor.

Let me know what you guys think.

Its a very sensible build! I Love it. I especially appreciate the case that you have used. People will spend a ton of money on the case when a 23 dollar case will hold the parts just as well.

This case needs slight cable management. People who reviewed it on newegg says it needs "hella cable management", but I only had to dissasemble it one time once I knew where things went so I could route cables before placing in mobo.

I have had cheap cases and expensive cases before and I won't criticize about getting a cheap case on a budget build, as long as it does the job and looks okay. You do kinda get what you pay for when it comes to the case, say stepping up to the $50-60 range then going to the $100 range you see a difference in build quality, features, and aesthetics. You do get what you pay for. That being said budget cases are best used on budget builds, especially since when on a budget you want as much money as possible on the hardware itself.

Cable management is one of those "features" extreme budget cases lack then going up to a CM N200 or a FD Focus G Mini are the 50-60$ cases that have options for it. Great budget build overall, hope you enjoy it!

Nice build. You could've eased up on the RAM to 2666 since it's your first time.

You can use Windows 10 trial version for now until you're not broke and you can get the demo for The Surge of Steam and MSI Afterburner to test out some benchmarks. Peace out.

I have money, it's just my college provides Win10 Education ver. for free, I just need to get it approved. As for the benchmark things, I will give those a go.

u dont want windows 10 EDU, have u got it yet? For me its a pain to use with everything disabled. We obviously couldn't use command prompt to our advantage ;)

Not sure if you got Windows yet, but CD keys from Ebay are cheap. I got one for $15 and it seems to work so far. OEM Home edition.

This seems like a really great build! Part choice is great and cheap, and I agree witharon304, the case doesn't have to cost 100$ to be good.

Yes, only problem with case is lack of space but I and others who built in this case got around it I suppose.

Looks similar to my Build guide build (Just Ryzen 3, a HDD, and a 1050 instead :D).

Great build, and solid processor.

I would really still recommend an ssd though. The build is still great, but all you'd need to start with is 120gbs for your two games. Then you could buy a cheap hdd later. Ow well +1

dude fix your cable management not because it looks bad but it could cause airflow and temperature problems.
