Gaming PC Build Feb 2016


Similar to before, I build another pc for a co-worker. This time the budget was around $2,000 with the goal to build a small and reasonably quit gaming rig. Overall it came out pretty nice. We came in right at $2k with the following parts:

The only challenge of the build was just the small size of the case. We got everything to fit, but if I were to do it again I would get a slightly shorter length power supply. The Corsair site lists that it supports power supplies up to 160mm so that is what we got, but there was very little clearance between the end of the power supply and the drive cages. All the cables are basically bent at 90 degrees in order to get around it. Other then that its a pretty nice case.
