Improvisational Present

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A few members here on OCN have known that I've been wanting to Build a PC for some one in my family that I just believe is the best.

I started a build that didn't go far because I realized it was just doomed.

I got a Job this year and I decided i will do the Build for real!

And I got a Headstart with a motherboard from Ihasfip

I'm a College student and I have bills so the Idea was, use as many Good used parts as possible to build a Gaming PC for my Cousin, because i will not go without my precious Phone, food, and internet lol.


Used Second h and parts and some new parts to build a Strong PC at budget and make it look Real Good. I Have not Chosen a case but I am sure that i want a side window, as well as many Chassis fans with LED's and a beast looking FAN. heat sink. I will try to have a fan controller as well as something to turn the LED lights on and Off. The GTS 250 used to be in my sig, actually had two, but i upgraded to my 560 Ti, it is a little bit loud so i may go about swapping an aftermarket Cooler on it.
have this done by Christmas morning. and make it the best present any one with a POS Desktop could imagine.


The motherboard; A Gigabyte GA-73VM-S2 (got from a giveaway)

Parts That I have ordered and Received
Intel Core 2 Quad 6600
G Skill Pi black

Parts Re used:
CD Drives
old HDD
GTS 250

Parts Pending
Chassis
Heatsink/fan.
Power supply
Fans
After market GPU cooler.
