Description

Everything worked well, the cam software for the HUE+ is a bit glitchy and won't open some of the time. I highly advise you to go with this part list however you CAN save a bit on an i3 and then get a better GPU. I AM only eleven years old so I am not as smart as you experienced PC builders out there.

Case Fan

this IS a nice case fan, however it does make quite a bit of noise under full load.

I look at this build shaking my head.

facepalm...

Spend all the budget on the i5.

And cheap out on the GPU, no SSD and a cheap PSU.

Like LeMMingSlayeR

The build would be more balanced even with a i3 8100, 128GB SSD, Dual channel RAM, and a GPU like a GTX 1050 and a decent PSU like the EVGA 450BT.

I did not check the PSU because I thought it was a 430w and a thermal take. I did not check if it was modular or better in some ways. First time mistakes on my end.

You can get a G4560 and RX 560/1050 (ti) for the same price as that i5 and the GT 710... looks nice but disappointed in the priorities.

U Just downgrade ur self with the gt710. The Intel hd630 is twice as strong as te 710. I hope u can refund it in time. And get atleast GT 1030/ rx550 if amd free sync (GTX 1050/ rx560 pref) OR save it and buy a SSD atleast 120GB

it was a temporary solution because I originally ordered a GTX 1050. I put the GT710 in there because my motherboard Does not have a HDMI port on it.

I don't have a monitor that supports dvi, and I had the gt710 from a older computer if mine so I salvadged it. I DID NOT purchase the 710 for this build specifically.

I have made some mistakes with my first build, like temporarily putting a GT710 in there, and getting a non-modular PSU, and not getting a dedicated SSD.(which I have reasons for.) (I am only 11 years old.)

Will say, for $750 this is a great build. Looks nice, as an 11 year old you did a great job with your cable management, especially if you did it yourself. All parts are great for a budget build, except the GPU. I don’t think you really NEED an SSD, so good choice there, but you should’ve maybe went with 4 GB of RAM, and an i3, or a Ryzen CPU to get a better GPU with this budget. Overall great job and looks great.

Thank you so much! We really need people like you in this world because you are so great and honest. Yes I did do this by my self. It was like a project for my spring break.

That’s really impressive. As an 11 year old, and it being your first build, most people like you would not be able to create a build like this. I went through the messages, and I see you have a GTX 1050 ordered, which will obviously be an upgrade, and bring up your performance. Good luck with installing that! Great PC!

I agree!

This is what happens when you spend more on aesthetics than performance.

I did order a 1050 after I built this build however it has not came yet. I did not think I needed a SSD because I knew that I was definitely not going to use ALL of the one terabyte of the HDD, and with SSD prices still high.

yeah I second this. The 2400G is between a 1050 and 1050ti which would blow the 710 performance clean outta the water

I only put the 710 in there because my motherboard does not have a HDMI port.

I salvaged the GT710 out of an older computer of mine, so there was no point in buying a new adapter. I had the 710 before I built the computer
