A while ago I received a desktop for free. It was working, though its components were outdated to say the least. After giving the insides a quick clean I got the specs for the machine:
Case: Generic, came with the PSU I presume
CPU: Athlon 64 single core
GPU: nVidia GeForce gt240. This apparently used to be a Galaxy 7600gt
RAM: 2gb of, DDR
Motherboard: Infinity Lanparty.
HDD: 160gb sata mechanical.
DVD Drive: Liteon 32x.
PSU: 450watt thing. About 6 molex connectors but no PCI-E connectors
Not exactly a powerhouse. Now I already have a very nice (new) XPS that I like to use but, I would like a desktop to work on. I'm not bursting with money so it will be a slow upgrade process. Most of you already know how its going down. Motherboard, CPU, Case and, PSU are being replaced all at once. Ram will be replaced shortly after (very shortly). Graphics card and finally any extras like HDD and cooling will come last.
The future specs will be
Either HAF 922, 932 or Sharkoon Tauron (depends on what I can afford)
Asus Direct CUII GT560ti
8gb Ripjaws ram
Asrock Extreme 4 z77
HDD: Whatever is big and cheap, eventually an SSD but its too early to decide
DVD Drive: Unchanged
PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus 750W
What will come will come, watercooling and all that are still a while away.
On a different note, the PSU came and it is beautiful. I haven't tested it but its put together very well and the cables are nice. It won't be going in until the Case,motherboard and CPU come.
Images will be posted when the case comes.
