    Default Building my sister a computer

    Hey guys, I'm going to be building my sister a computer for general use (homework, internet, word documents, PDFs etc. NO GAMING! haha) with a budget of 700, I've already got the parts (no PSU since I've got 2 extras, haha)

    Case - Bitfenix Colossus w/side window

    Motherbaord - MSI 870A G54

    CPU - Phenom II X4 955

    GPU - ECS Black Series GTS 450

    RAM - G. Skill Ripjaw Series 4gb

    CPU cooler - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 (fan replaced with blue LED fan)

    Harddrive - WD Caviar Blue 500gb

    DVD Drive - External, haven't decided yet

    White or blue LED fans, I'll get them depending on how saturated the colors are.

    As you can see, I'll be going for a mainly white and blue theme, haha. I realize some parts are overkill, but hey, I want to build this damn color scheme XD

    I'll update with pictures when I order the parts this week


  2. The following user thanks Nyarlathotep For this above post:
