This build, even though not made with high end parts, means quite a bit to me, mostly because I've been gaming on a laptop for about 3 years now :P Now I know instead of getting the apu, I should've gotten the Athlon or something, but I was on a rly tight budget, lol.
Now on to the build story
Took me about a week to build, mostly because I've performed probably every rookie mistake in the book. Wanna know them? Let me start. The first (and one that I'm legitimately embarrassed about) was that instead of plugging my monitor display port to the gpu, I plugged it into the onboard graphics, so I wasn't getting video. Afterwards I thought it was a problem with the parts I brought, so I did a ton of research, and I finally found out that I plugged it in to the wrong port. Felt so dumb after that xD
Another one was that I didn't find a port for the case fan on my mobo, so I thought it wasn't compatible with it. Then I found the PSU plug for it 2 days later when I saw a build on YouTube.
Last one was that I realized that the gpu covered the PCI-E slot I needed for the WiFi card, so yh.
If you're wondering, no, this build is not to play games that are too graphics intensive. I mostly play Minecraft and other games using basically the same amount of graphics power. At least I get 300fps max, but I get a lot of frame drops, so I limited it to 120. I get 90fps with shaders on, which is the same fps I get on my laptop with low settings :P
So yeah, all in all, pretty proud of it, does what it needs to do. Light gaming and occasional school work. It was for my 13th bday, and I'm pretty happy with it :D
Decided to get this cpu mainly because it does pretty well for its price, and it's doing pretty well for me so far :D
Nothing too fancy or too decorated, but it's doing quite well for me so far ;)
I don't play too many graphics-heavy games, so this card is pretty good for me.
