Working good!


Have had everything set up for two days, and it runs great. Please excuse the phone picture but you get an idea. Cpu temps: 32 idle,40-43 full load. GPU: 50-53 idle, 60-68 full load. This was my first custom build and my first computer than can actually play games on max settings. It was such an odd feel to be able to runs SC2 & Vindictus on max considering I used to use a laptop that couldn't even run the lowest. I'll look into overclocking once I've studied more on it, I don't want to just change random bios if I have no clue what I'm doin.



Putting together the PC wasn't as bad as I thought it was, only problems I had were with screwing in the mother board pegs(mostly because I'm a weak little girl). Very fun though, and will never go back to buying a pre-built pc EVER again. This was a costly investment(for me) but it is what I'm on whenever I'm not OUTSIDE. So if a weak timid shy klutzy person like me can put these parts together, so can you!!

Yeah, I've had mine almost four years now and it still does most stuff fine enough, with only graphics card replacement (downgrade in raw power/minor upgrade in technology) and RAM replacement (upgrade) which I usually overclock for games. I had it put together though since I'm weak like that.

The only chance I would buy a pre-built is if it was cheap or had some special use/gimmick I needed.
