This build is for my 14-year-old step-brother who is an avid Overwatch player who; before this build, was only able to play at around 20 fps on low on his quickly aging Dell Inspiron Laptop. My middle brother and I have had gaming PC's for a couple of years now so he has been wanting to get one for what seems to him like forever. He saved up his money for about a year and a half and was very excited when his dream of building his own PC came to life. Overall I am very happy with this build and how it turned out especially for the price. If you have any questions feel free to ask me and if you want to know what I thought of the parts please look at the reviews. Thank you! :)
Got this for $210 with a $10 off coupon on Newegg. While it can't overclock it is still a great processor and am actually pretty impressed by it!
Super basic motherboard but for $50 why not? It's got the basics that we needed and helped keep the price down.
This RAM is awesome! We haven't had any problems with it and I think it really makes the build look a lot better with the LED bar.
It is a fairly inexpensive SSD that we put the OS on. Works well enough! Boot time is around 6-8 seconds.
Not yet in the build but will be when I upgrade my personal computers storage around Christmas. Will be used for mass storage of games and such.
This was probably one of the parts I was the happiest about. We were able to snag this for $205 with a $20 MIR effectively taking the price down to $185. For that price I couldn't be happier. It stays super cool and quiet and so far has been pretty good at overclocking.
For $35 (when we bought it) this case is pretty damn good. You can feel the materials are a little on the cheaper side but the cable management isn't too bad and IMO looks really good. Nice that it comes with two blue LED fans even if they are a little loud. (We may switch them out for two more Corsair Quiet Edition fans as we put one in the front and it is awesome)
I work at best buy so I was able to snag this for $37 with my discount. It's a solid power supply although I wish it was modular. (My next one will be one for sure) Also the cables can be a little stiff on this.
This was an old monitor of mine that I gave to him so that he wouldn't have to drop another $100 or so dollars to complete his build. It works for now.
Another part from a previous build. I sold this to him for $20 and it is still kicking strong. He is a fan but wishes it could change colors like my Ornata and Blackwidow Chroma.
He got this for his Birthday back in September. Has good ergonomics and the sensor on it is awesome.
Probably the worst part of this build because they have somewhat decent sound quality and eh mic quality. He is looking at getting into streaming and getting a dedicated Mic setup so his viewers will actually enjoy the stream.
