so I have been collecting the funds to build this computer for around 6 months now and i am so happy with the results.
I built this pc mainly for video editing/rendering and some gaming as well and it might not be the most common combination of cpu/gpu but i love it, all of the cores make rendering a lot faster than my laptop and my 1050ti (factory overclocked and then overclocked again for good measure) can handle anything i throw at it. GTA 5 @100fps and witcher 3 @40fps (avg fps for both)(high/ultra settings for both)
I decided on the white and blue build because i thought white and blue builds looked really cool and unfortunately i didnt know at the time that they were also expensive lol
some of the parts were presents like the monitor and keyboard but almost everything else came out of my own wallet and i worked so freaking hard for the money, Im 15 so its kinda hard to make money but i made it work and ended up spending around $1200-$1400 of my own (i bought a lot of stuff on sale)
looking back the gpu isnt the best choice for this build but i originally bought it for this build but it works for me, i am also running the 2tb HDDs in raid 0 bc i didnt want to have to try to manage 3 hard drives with important stuff across each (i have done it b4 and one of them died and it was a mess) so instead i have 1 ssd with frequently used stuff(premiere pro, paragon, stuff like that) and then a 4tb partion for all my games and videos.
UPGRADES in the future i want to upgrade to 32GB of ram New cpu cooler (probably a nice noctua one) be quiet! case fans even though my pc isnt very loud rn it would be better new gpu probably a 1080 once the price drops a lot, or an OC 1070
um well its amazing so what more could you want
easy to install but thermals are kinda bad, its good if you dont want to spend too much but want a working computer, the stock cooler might be better though
love the white and grey theme, i ended up having to buy 2 bc i didnt recognize my cpu but i think i might have bent a pin on the first one
Idk why but i love these, reasonably priced and work as they should, 10/10 would buy again
can pack a bunch way above its weight class, great for a budget gaming build.
honestly i hated working in this case, the pcie covers are connected to the case and you cant put them back on after they are off, bad cable management options, only 2 3.5inch bays. i only bought it bc it was on sale, but 2 stars for being a cheap(ish) white case
it works, you get what you pay for, wouldn't recommend for small cases
Wireless Network Adapter
eh, it works, one day it wouldnt connect to my internet and the next day it was working again, i still have no idea why
OH MY GAD I LOVE THIS THING, I AM TYPING ON IT RIGHT NOW AND ITS GREAT + RGB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CANT STOP WONT STOP
best mouse have used and its decently priced
great sound quality, little pricy in my opinion but worth it
charges my phone (s7 edge) on my desk without needing extra cables and its a reasonable price
this was my first ssd and it has worked very well for me so far, boots windows 10 in 11.7s according to task manager, i wish i had bought the 240GB though
