Description

Built on a budget, Ben's PC was bought with money from Christmas and Birthdays. Ben wanted a solid computer to play games with his friend who already had a PC (pre-built with 1050 installed).

Ben found me through his granddad, who works with my Dad, and so when Ben was looking for a PC, his granddad suggested me as he knew I build computers, and that I had built my Dad's office PC, so this is how it began.

I hope Ben has a great time on PC for the years to come.

Photos, specs and information up to date as of build date.

This would have been slightly better if you used Dual Channel memory and a b350 to save some money as well. With the extra money added you might have been able to pull out a Ryzen 5, but overall this build is very clean and difficult to find problems with!

Thanks man! I like to keep my builds simple, clean and cheap, so if something does go wrong it's easy to repair. The budget was already maxed out, so we couldn't spend any more money unfortunately :(

Here are my excuses for not doing the B350 with the dual channel ;)

I would of liked to include these components, especially the B350 motherboard, but the power supply only has a 4-pin EPS and I did not want to use an adaptor, and with the power supply being included with the case and being rather cheap, I would not want to give it added stress, although on paper it should be OK. Also for simplicity, longevity and reliability, I decide against overclocking.

The RAM was chosen due to the price being quite low when compared to other sticks, and only using a single 8GB stick would allow him to upgrade to 16GB in the future, as this board only has 2 DIMM slots, and 2x4GB was more expensive.

Thanks again! :)

Yup, this PC has very good graphics for games and performs very well in them for the price. What type of screen are you planning to use (resolution)?

Cheers man! Sorry for the late reply as well.

If you have a look below on my reply to Collinator24, I explain why I decided against the B350 :)

Again, thanks for the comment :)
