Fantastic job on your wire management. For a budget build, in a case with probably 0 cable management you killed it. Most people who build like this don't care. But you went above and beyond great job.

I LOL'd really hard at the 280, because I am actually about to order a GTX 260 for my AM3 machine (you can see it here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/scgwrH) because the GPU I had in it no longer works and I have yet to figure out why. +1

Try using Custom parts, you can list pretty much anything. Nice build.

where is the intake vents on the case for the aio? it looks like a solid front panel

Intake comes from the bottom at the front. I had to cut out part of the metal mesh to allow more airflow.

It's May, why are you investing in a space heater?

No money was spent on this machine. The gpu was on display, might as well build something.

Boot up Crysis and you'll warm right up.

I got my main rig for heat, this one is for display. I don't think it'll ever get used.

Q6600s are quite good for budget performance. Its nice to see them still around. I used to own it, it was a beast for the $20 I got it for. +1

Your cable management on a case with what looks like crappy cable management(if any at all) is better than mine on a Corsair 760T

How well does this run games like fortnite or overwatch. Basically any 1080p games? Nice build BTW.

I only tried a game on this machine once with a 550 ti at 900p and I can't recommend it.
