First Ever PC Build - Inspired by Scrapyard Wars

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everybody! (hi Doctor Nick!)


So, I have just finished pimping up my first ever gaming PC. I am looking for feedback and any way I can improve on this build for cheap. Either aesthetically or performance-ly.


Inspired by the idea of Craigslist bargain hunting in Scrapyard Wars and giving myself a budget of £800 (Yup, UK), I set out to get my best possible deal. What I ended up with is the following:


  1. NZXT H440 Case (w. PSU)
  2. MSI B150 PC Mate Mobo
  3. 2 x 8 GB Hyper X Fury DDR4 RAM
  4. Nvidia GTX 1080
  5. 256GB M.2 SSD
  6. 1 TB HD
  7. i7-6700

Concerned at the cooling from the rubbish stock fans I've added the following:

  1. 3 x Corsair ML120 in the front
  2. 2 x Corsair ML140 in the roof
  3. 1 x Corsair LL140 at the back (RGB, but dont have an RGB controller.... yet!)
  4. 1 x 120mm RGB fan from some random company I cant even remember.


The case looked really... boring. Plain. I felt it needed some R, some G and some B. So I bought 2 x £10 strips off Amazon and the result is below.


Total cost: £730.00. So £70 under budget.


Please let me know your feedback and if it looks okay or could I make it better cheaper in any way at all. Very happy to listen and learn.


Have a great day!
