Hello to everyone at Tom's Hardware, For a couple of years I always wanted to make a custom pc that can be used for gaming. I could not wait any longer and made it before Christmas of 2012. On this custom pc, I do play lots of games but I don't have the need to play everything at the highest resolution. Some of the games off the top of head are Borderlands 2 ,Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, Metro 2033, Saints Row 3, CS:GO to name a few. But like in the title says, How did I do for my first custom pc?
P.S I already owned an old SSD and HDD along with all the peripherals so I did not include them. Got the Video Card for about $5.00 cheaper on Amazon and the Case I bought about $10 cheaper but still from Newegg.
I will let you know in the next couple of days. Have not really done benchmarks or what not. All I know is that I am gaming better than my laptop that I have for about 4 months.
My specs to my laptop
CPU: Core i7-2640m
GPU: Intel Hd 3000 Integrated Graphics
RAM: 8 Gigs at 1333mhz
Screen Resolution: 1366 x 768
Coming from that laptop. Gaming at least for me is better. I probably keep using my laptop for my college work, video editing, and Game emulators.
