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)
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.
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.
