Description

 My first (and ungraceful) build was piecemealed together, the parts chosen for price and not for quality or preference.  ASUS and EVGA were cost-effective, Rosewill was a great discount, and Corsair...well, Corsair was the only brand I trusted that made RAM small enough to fit in the rig, considering how snug it all was.  In the end, it was perfectly serviceable; strong performance for 2 years, with no issues save for needing a fan splitter.  Some parts were added on over time; the WiFi adaptor when I moved to an area without ethernet, an SSD for getting my Master's, and lovely accessories when there was some money left over.
 This was a fine first PC, but I could never get over the fact that I bought it out of necessity and not from desire.  I intended for my next case to be entirely my own, and while a few parts will be brought over, it will be a far cry from this device.

Yeah, pretty outdated. But I'm not rendering video, I don't need an i7.

Don't indent the paragraphs, it makes the entire description formatted as code.

How's the FX-6300 and GTX 1050 Ti doing in 2019?

I have the same exact build but more ram and it holds up well. ive been banging out apex wins on high settings.

That's almost surprising considering that the FX-6300 is really just a tri-core with some tacked on "cores"

Who knows, I guess Apex is just more GPU based.

Yeah, I was honestly surprised too!

They're solid. Affordable and compact for the power they provide. I would stick with my CPU, but all the other parts require I move to Ryzen.

I like how a lot of the peripherals cost more or just barely less than some of your core components

Put all parts to lowest prices and it comes to 962, the keyboard costs more than every single key component, why?

Yeah, that's what happens when you buy Corsair. For crying out loud, the cost of my keyboard could have bought me 4 of my dinky cases!

Could've built a way better PC than this for $934

Nice! I'm part of the Corsair cult now, but if you got that rig to work at that cost, I applaud your part picking skills!
