Description

I built this PC from used parts found on Facebook Marketplace and Kijiji. Unfortunately the RAM stick originally going to be in this build was a dud from Amazon warehouse and I swapped in a Corsair Vengeance LPX. The case fans came with the case.

I loaded up Windows 10 with some issues and I had to uninstall C++ and install an older version.

Using Unigine Heaven I was able to get an average 64 FPS on high. So it should run GPU intensive games on Medium/High settings quite nicely. The case is a bit banged up so she isn't the prettiest looking machine but she can play games which is all she was meant for.

That no-name(?) PSU tho

Lepa isn't a no-name PSU brand. They make some good units such as the G series but this unit is a lower end PSU.

Lepa is so-so for sure. I think the original owner got it just cuz it was white.

It is not no-name. It is LEPA.

I would definitely clean that case a little bit better. I can still see the dust from the top fans that were once there. Also I would take a warm damp cloth to that sticker residue on the top. Also nice job on a 4gb 760. That was my first card but with 2gb. I was really upset with the limitations on the 2gb model, but it was one hell of a card.

Ya I went through a can of air duster on that thing. Do you have any suggestions on how to do that better? Could I just use a vacuum maybe?

btw first of all change the 1 stick of 8gb ram u have to 2 sticks of 4gb ram because if u get 1 stick then u will get a lot of lag because of the latency (which makes ur pc slow down) and also try changing that cpu to a ryzen 3 1300x and change ur graphicsc card to a amd rx 480. Lastly try bumping up ur ssd to 250gb, that will help ur computer run faster and smoother

Ya I know 2 is better but this was made on the cheap with what I could find in my local markets. Also it's an Intel board so can't just swap to a Ryzen. I like how your comment is essentially build a different computer. I just build these for fun and to see what I can make from locally available parts. That would be a very good set up you have described though, however this all cost about 300$ USD to make.
