Greetings fellow PC building enthusiasts!
This was just a quick build that my buddy and I did a few weeks ago for his son who wants to get into entry level gaming. He wants to play stuff like LoL, Minecraft and some other less demanding games so we decided to try and build something for him with used parts on the cheap! The result is what you see in the pictures, we slapped an RGB LED strip in there from cablemod to help it stand out a bit.
Performance is pretty good for gaming (as good as a GTX 760 can be I suppose) and the overclocked Phenom still packs a pretty good punch! I wouldn't recommend this CPU/GPU combo for anything other than low end gaming but for what it's being used for it does a great job lol
The only downside to doing an ultra budget build like this is the fact that the case is pretty terrible for cable management but I tried my best! Additionally the front panel connectors are all different colors (unlike some budget cases that at least make them all black) and there's not really any clean way to route them to the MOBO.
Other than the case the whole build was super smooth, gotta say I'm a huge fan of the cablemod RGB LED strip too; the included remote is super fun to mess around with!
Thanks for checking out the build and feel free to ask me any questions or leave comments, until next time!
