2nd Build! sold my first build and donated the $ to charity!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
i wasn't sure where to even post this BUT id like to thank Volvo and Pencil364 for my first build suggestions i went with Volvo's bang for buck build and a friend of mine went with pencil364s build and they both work great, sold one for charity "find a cure to cancer" and gave one to my friends mother.

we had so much fun building our first PC's that we want another go. except this time id like a small break down as to why the motherboard is the best for the processor. if you having nothing to do right now but Exercise your overall knowledge of components then why not type out something here.

now this build i would want the components to compliment each other on performance to kind of help me out to give me an idea of why one would compliment the other Starting off with a good processor that costs about $250 same limit for the HDD or SSD then build from there.. Pictures will be taken when the build is finished expect it in about a month or so for money saving. Thank you for the input!

As an accounting person I just have to ask....if you buy parts, build a computer, sell a computer, donate cash to charity, how do you "break even"?

example Volvo mentioned Components equal to about $300, i was able to sell it for about 450.. the guy i sold it to lives 20 mins away from me so i drove over to drop it off and also installed it for him (i plugged in the power cord lol) so he gave me 450 for it.. so 150 donated.. its not much but its something.. breaking even.
