Budget PC Build with a long ass story

For those of you who dont want to read the history it cost me $330 total custom case

Specs are

I7 2600

120gb ssd

320gb hard drive

8go ram

GTX 750Ti FTW

500w hexa psu

Windows 10

This PC took me just over a month to complete it started life as a school server wiyh a lga 775 motherboard and a pentium D cpu,it also sported a whole 512mbs of ddr2 ECC ram with a full 640gbs of storage.I got this for free because my mum works at the school and it would have been thrown away.

I took it home and completely striped it and listed all the internals apart from 1 hdd on trade me for $30nzd which to my surprise sold this happened over Christmas so I got $300 from my family.

I dedicated this money to this PC. Bought some spray paint and went to town with the black and white.then found some deals on trade me and grabbed them

I also reused one from 2 of the 320gb hard drives.then through it in and cable managed. Lernt most of what i know from watching LTT.

Thanks for reading I know it was long winded, I hope you will see more of me in the future.☺

Solid, I love a good budget build. One question though, what is the graphics card?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

So far, loving this build. Love seeing what will come of it. Also like the paint splatter on the top of the case. Makes it a bit more unique.
