Build Log: Liberator

Recommended Posts

Liberator

This is the title of my new PC that I will build. It is titled such because it is my first custom computer, and it will save me from my current prebuilt PC.

 

6/20/16

Over the course of a couple years, I have been saving a great amount of money. Between selling candy (it was boring), birthday and holiday gifts, and even taking ballroom dancing lessons for $100, I have saved $720 USD.

About $500 will go towards new PC parts:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor $180
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H-A Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard $65
Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory $35
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive $90
Case: Corsair SPEC-01 RED ATX Mid Tower Case $50
Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply $40

  • This will be all bought on Amazon. The pricing was being weird in PCPartPicker (Classic PCPP, you know?), so I didn't bother to include the exact prices or links. Sorry.
  • I am still experimenting with a Skylake build, but it is TBD if I would build that system or this one with the parts listed above.
  • I already have the graphics card, it is a GTX 670, and I got it for the low price of FREE.

So I will buy this stuff soon, and I can't wait. Follow this topic if you want to join me for the ride!

Welp, I have never made a purchase this big before...

I figured that a Skylake build on Amazon would only cost $3 more, so I chose to buy that.

So I bought all of my parts for these prices off of Amazon:

Now it is just a waiting game for all of these parts to come...

 

7/6/16

My neighbor's garage burned and almost caught my house on fire yesterday. Yay...

Several of my parts have arrived in the mail, with the rest coming tomorrow.

My case (I never new how beautiful it would be) arrived on 6/27/16.

My ram and flash drive came 7/5/16, I loaded the flash drive with a bootable windows install.

I can't wait.

I got it from my neighbor who upgraded.

It's kinda sad as others might not be as lucky
