Description

I bought a Dell Inspiron on Black Friday in 2014 and used it for a while as an htpc. Here it is in a new case with a new Motherbord and GPU. I used the Dell's CPU and cooler. I had the PSU lying around from an old HP that someone gave me. It has 12gb of ram. I like this case for the price. Very easy to build in.

How much was the dell?

I paid $300 for it back in 2014. With the i5 4460 1TB HDD and 12gb ram. Pretty good deal.

Nice rebuild. I have the same PC as you and find it works well in the standard Dell case but would like to one day rebuild it into a mATX platform.

I assume you tore the inspiron apart and started with a fresh copy of windows 10? No migration of the old os?

Surprisingly the old install of the OS booted right up and worked fine. I did do a fresh install though just in case. Your mileage my vary though!

I only took it apart because I was bored. I built a new rig a few months ago and we had just been using this one for Netflix and YouTube mostly. I'm going to try and sell this one for pretty cheap now.
