My PC Specs
#1
Hello there!

I'm a massive nerd who loves working on PC's and I've only ever built one of my own, but i'm very proud of it!

My current PC build specs are:
• Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
• An Intel Core i5-4690k @ 3.5GHz (Haswell 22nm Technology)
• 4 sticks of Corsair Vengeance Dual-Channel DDR3 RAM (16GB)
• An ASUS Z97-P Motherboard (Socket 1150)
• An ace ATX 700 watt Power Supply
• An AOC e2050S Monitor (1600x900) and a CVTE TV (1920x1080) (but unbelievably shit looking)
• My GPU is a 2048MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (ASUStek)
• And I have 1x 232GB Seagate ST3250824AS (SATA) and 2x 465GB Hitachi HDS721050CLA660's (SATA)

This added together cost me a total of roughly £370

What are some of your builds and how much did they cost you? I'm interested to know Happywide

Wow that's some pretty good stuff for that price point!
I guess I'll go ahead and share mine.
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Intel Core i3-7100 w/ stock cooler CPU
  • Brandless 2x4GB DDR3 RAM
  • Gigabyte AMD RX 460 OC GPU
  • Corsair VS450 PSU
  • Gigabyte GA-H110M MOBO
  • Samsung 120GB 850 Evo SSD + Seagate 1TB HDD
  • Samsung S24D340 Monitor + Acer K242HL Monitor
  • Corsair K95 Platinum Keyboard + Logitech G203 Mouse + Corsair HS70 Headphones
I upgraded this over a long time so it's kinda hard to say but if I were to estimate it cost me around €700 total and the peripherals are probably the best part of it. I realize nowadays this would be kind of a waste.

Tbh, that is actually a hella good looking system!

While the RAM and CPU, I'll admit, are definitely on the lower side of things and could most likely be picked up more, you've got some super good monitors, a Really nice choice of SSD and a great GPU that I imagine certainly picks up performance!

Also, you are right in saying that you have some great peripherals, I'm super jealous of those bad boys!
