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.
