This is my first build. I wanted to build something powerful enough for casual gaming without making me go bankrupt, hence the name. In the end I am very surprised at the performance of this build, and I feel that I went the right route by starting with lower end parts and building up over time. My wallet sure appreciates it. I did cut corners in a lot of places but I am pretty happy with the outcome. Also I know my desk is a coffee table. I am poor. I am also sorry for the crap pictures. I originally had better pictures of the whole building process but they got deleted off my phone.
Amazingly fast for an i3. I couldn't afford an i5 or i7 but this thing has chewed through every game and program I have thrown at it. Very impressed with Intel and the Skylake architecture.
One of the cheapest Skylake boards. Amazing features for the price and it works. Skylake board? PCI Express 3.0? Decent audio? $60!? Sold.
It's RAM. It's DDR4. It's fast. It looks cool.
Amazing SSD for your Windows installation. Some people ***** about it not being fast enough but my PC boots in like 5 seconds and my transfer speeds are nothing to cry over. Great for the price.
Great size. Decent speeds. Amazing price.
I love this card. When everyone says it is the best budget video card out there, they are not kidding. This thing has been killing any game I throw at it. I have been getting right around 60FPS in almost all games I play on it. At 1080p. The lowest I have had to go is medium settings, but most games run fine at High-Ultra. Mind blowing performance for $120.
Decent case. But cable management is not that great. This was the part of my build that I cheeped out on but it was not the end of the world. The only problem I had was putting 2 storage devices in the case. It advertises that you can install two 3.5" drives on the swinging hard drive bay, but I could only fit one. Spent 2 hours trying to figure this out with no luck. I ended up mounting my SSD with the 3.5" extender in the expansion bay. But for $30, I can't complain.
It works. It's cheap. No problems.
I was not to fond of this OS at first but it has really grown on me.
Amazing monitor for the price. The IPS Panel is perfect out of the box. I have not had to change a single setting and the color reproduction in gaming, photos, and movies is perfect. I am very satisfied with the quality since I only spent $100.
I have had this keyboard for about 2 years now and it still works perfect. I love the compact size and the RGB. But the best part is the Cherry MX Red switches. Perfect input times with no delay at all and they feel great.
Decent mouse. I like that it is a palm grip. The only thing that blows is SteelSeries software. The DPI setting in the software sucks because it only lets you select predetermined DPI increments.
