This is my very first PC build. The total cost was about US$640. About the rig: I built this mainly to play some of my go-to steam games like CS:GO, GTA V etc, (most of them aren't very GPU intensive) which is why I decided to get one of the cheapest GPU I could find. Although the 750ti is a rather old and outdated card, its performance is still great for medium to high settings at 1080p. Apart from that, I can potentially upgrade my GPU to the RX 480 or the GTX1060. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and I feel that there is room for potential upgrades for this rig to fully maximize its potential.
Potentially the best buy for me as it ensures future upgrades without any bottlenecks.
Bought this together with the i5 7500 as a bundle and it cost me 439 Singapore dollars which is around 312 US dollars. Definitely a solid mATX board which some cool features at a good price.
Budget ram sticks but it does the job!
This is my boot drive and wow, it really performs. Boot time took around 12.45 seconds!
Good for all your games, movies, etc.
This card cost me only $110 Singapore dollars which is around 78 US dollars. Definitely a good buy in my opinion. Will definitely upgrade in the near future.
Got this for $40 SGD which is only $30USD! Really cheap for this case. Cable management however, is not too easy.
