Greetings PC Building Enthusiasts!
So this is the result of a few used parts that I slowly accumulated over the past few months, the CPU, motherboard and CPU cooler were part of a combo that I got on eBay a while back. I was a little bit apprehensive about using a Sandybridge CPU but after looking at multiple benchmark scores and seeing that (once overclocked) it performs as well as a Ryzen 3 1200 I was more relieved.
The GTX 770 has been my go-to for budget builds that require a GPU for under $80 and I was lucky because I got this one in a pair of two for $160 before the current mining madness. It performs great in 1080p and I really have no complaints about the price/performance. I bought the HDD, Case and PSU new online and they perform fine. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the case! For something that's sub $40 it has a lot of great features! Cable management was a breeze and the PSU shroud was a huge plus, highly recommend.
All in all it was a fun build and it went to a good home, someone who was on a tight budget wanted a gaming machine for games like Overwatch, Destiny 2 and PUBG. He's super happy with it!
Thanks for looking at the build, feel free to leave a comment and I'll try to reply to all of them lol
