Description

So here's a build from an English teacher from Kharkiv, Ukraine.

I am not the richest gamer in the world, but I do believe that one shouldn't buy the cheapest hardware available. The only downside is that I have to constantly upgrade my hardware in order to be able to play all the latest games at comfortable fps. How often? I change motherboards and processors every five years. Graphics card - every 3-4 years.

Currently, I am quite happy with my build. I did a big upgrade in June 2015 and moved from AMD platform to Intel. All my games run smoother now. This config will be good for comfortable gaming for the next two years, I hope. And, actually, I really enjoy the process of upgrading. I surf the net, read reviews, compare prices (pcpartpicker.com is awesome). Unpacking a purchased item is incredibly fun.

The TV is connected to the PC via HDMI cable. Watching movies on 42" screen is amazing. The Yamaha receiver works its magic with Jamo 128 speakers and they deliver such an amazing rich-in-bass sound that my sofa literally shivers and vibrates.

What I can proudly boast of is 1 Gigabit internet from my ISP. It allows to download torrents incredibly fast (up to 50 megabytes per second). And it's really cheap here. I pay only about 7$ per month.

Let me know what you think of this build.

PS I added some more photos for you to check out.

+1 for your build but it needs more pictures! Also I'm jealous of your internet, I pay almost $50 for only 90 Mbps here in California :(

I pay $79 for a 2mbps connection, which allows me to download around 280kbps (that's 0.28mbps)..... Yeah, sucks to be online in Australia!

I guess its good enough for most things though. I used to be on a 5 Mbps plan at one point from AT&T DSL before I got that $50 deal from Comcast for 50 Mbps.

At one point, Comcast gave an upgrade in speeds to everyone for free by doubling the minimum speeds for every plan hence my internet has now shot up to around 90 Mbps.

90 mbps for almost 50 dollars, that's actually a good deal.

Now that I look at it, in the US, it's a damn good price.

This us a PC website, not a setup website. Therfore, I find it confusing that you include a picture of your setup, and not a single one of the PC. Seriously, pictures of your setup aren't bad, and a lot of time are helpful if your looking at someone's specific peripheral... But when it's the only one? Bro, come on, you can do better.
