So I need an extra PC just for Lan gaming and I decided to build one for as cheap and fast as possible. I really saw no reason to use brand new parts, so the only part that was new was the HAF 922. Everything else was used. I only need it to play moderately intenseive games and I also just wanted to see how little I could spend. So here it is. (note all prices before tax)

Parts/cost
Case-HAF 912 For $59.99 plus MIR down to $49.99
CPU- Core 2 Duo @1.8ghz
GPU- XFX 8800 GTS 47.00
PSU- OCZ StealthXStream 500 Watt PSU $30.00 (with free 120mm CM fan, the blue fan on the front)
Mobo-Stock Dell (foxxcon)
Ram-1 GB DDR2
Spray Paint $12
(Note that the CPU, Ram, and mobo came with the Dell I bought they were together $110)

Total is $248.99

Now the Dell I got came with a PSU, GPU and case that I did not use but resold.
GPU -$12
PSU -$10
Case -$50

So if I add all these together the

Grand Total is 176.99

So I just wanted to challenge myself and make a really good budget build, maybe next year I will try another one. :teehee:

Haha nice dude. Looks good, love the monster symbol.
How well does it run, what kind of games you playing? What settings? Just curious.

I haven't tried a lot yet, I have played Garys mod at medium settings and I get 30-60fps most of the time, Starcraft 2 runs at high just fine to, I use it mostly for Starcraft 1 and nightfire thou. Great lan games :biggrin:

Nice job dude! yeah, tell us what you can run on it. Most netbooks cost more than that and probably can't play the games you play.
Never stop learning!
