Description

Please note that actual hardware differs quite a bit from the listed parts because pcpartpicker is not updated as frequently and as extensively as [I think] it should be.

  • Actual GPU: Inno3D Gaming OC (GDDR5X) 6GB

  • Actual case: GMC Tank MicroATX Mid-Tower

  • Actual optical drive: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-224DB

  • Actual monitor: TELEFUNKEN TF-22S2 LED TV (50 Hz, overclocked to 69 Hz; 5ms)

  • Actual mouse: Defender Shock GM-110L Black USB Gaming Mouse (3200 DPI)

=====

Built almost entirely from scratch, based on a 5 year old prebuilt 400$ PC (i5-4430, GTX 660, 8GB DDR3) Only things intact after 5 years are the PSU, the case, the 500GB Toshiba hard drive and the optical drive.

It is pretty inconvenient for those of us buying less popular parts, but there is the option to create custom entries in your list. I've had to do this several times & I try to include an authoritative URL for reference.

I like to see people in remote places getting their money's worth out of PC parts. Many of us are spoiled with easy access to everything we click & then we can only pretend to be proud of the achievement. I salute your build sir.

Thank you! That's very nice of you. I never expected such feedback on this build.

I took note of your advice.

Custom list entries are your friend for obscure parts. pcpartpicker has no way to keep a part list of everything ever produced on the planet that might get used in a pc somewhere. EDIT: phooeyptooey brought this up. Never mind. Props for keeping hardware out of the landfill and reusing stuff. (The pc I'm typing on right now is just that; re-used parts.)

Your build looks really tough and rugged. I bet you could do some cool mods with that case that wouldn't cost much. Like cammo paint, or something. I love that people are rehabbing/hacking old computer parts.

I'm not really fond of military camouflage on PCs. But thank you for your advice.

It's no laughing matter.
