New Gaming Rig

Post by Sebastian Lawe » July 20th, 2015, 1:41 am

I finally finished up my gaming rig. Runs rather nicely thusfar.
Blows out nothing but cold air, and yet there's no cooling system installed.

How much did you get those parts for?

Also, I'm curious as to how the pentium does in games since it's a rather low-end processor

The build cost $571 CAD including taxes, and shipping/handling.

As for the processor, its an anniversary edition pentium. It can be overclocked to 4.5ghz.
Havent run into any problems yet, just gotta close every other application when running games.

Right, yeah I heard about that pentium being used now by people for these budget builds. Just the fact that it's dual core turns me off though... Some games require quad core processors nowadays.

I got a gaming rig not to run away from a controller, but to have a 'console' with competent hardware. This machine sits in my living room on a large TV. Anything shy of 45 - 60fps is unplayable, and not cost effective considering this rig cost only $63 CAD more than a PS4 and shreds it into peices by a long shot.

Meh. It only levels the advantage. Hasnt helped much for COD, and hasn't really disrupted Halo Online.

Not to mention, I'm shit at keyboard button reaction beyond WASD.
