    I have now is a dinosaure.

    A Intel Celeron D. 80 gig or HD, 1.5 gig of RAM, Win XP

    My computer die on me June 11 :(, the mother board die and did not go to the bios to load.

    I was having problem with the com, but did not know what was it, then my second HD was no longer show. I manage to backup my book mark and my furry folder on a USB key. I try to reboot, but the computer stop. No bip, no video signal, nothing.

    I remove the video card and plug the monitor direct on the mother board, no signal. I remove 3 of the 4 gig of ram, no signal. I remove the HD no signal.

    The ram are ok, the HD seem ok since when I boot I can feel it.

    So its the motherboard that die :(

    It was a AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor 4200+ 2.20Ghz with 4 gig of RAM 64bits win 7 HD 500 Gig and 200 Gig. Video card of 1 gig.

    This week I will see how it turn out. It need a power supply, a battery for the motherboard, a HD to install the OS, I still got 2 gig of ram, still got my video card and the old HDs. Don't know if the motherboard is good or not.

    If not I will have to wait and see in august due to a problem with the landlord.

    Upgrading your RAM probably isn't going to be your best option... you're running an i5-4600 but you only have a GTX 650; you should match that i5 with a better GPU with performance like the GTX 960/AMD R9 380, these are older cards, their newer generation cards are the RX 470 and the GTX 1060

    My workstation/gaming PC with a i5 4690k overclocked to 4.2ghz at 1.18 volts with a Antec AIO unit on top of it I also have 2 1tb hdds and one 3tb hdd and a 500gh hdd in a hotswap bay and a 270gb ssd for the boot drive. It also has 16gb of ram and a 8gb reference AMD Radeon RX 480 as the main GPU and a Sappire Radeon R7 240 that has no display hooked up to it and does calculations for a program called Folding@Home. All of it is powered by a Corsair 750watt 80+ bronze PSU and I'm using a Asrock Z97 Extreme 4 motherboard.
    (Will update with pics when I get the chance to compress the immages to be less then 1mb in size)

    The monitor is from 2008, although it became mine 4 years later, when my brother, my dad and I had our own PCs each. The res is 1680 x 1050, if I'm not wrong.

    Also I'm GLAD I bought this case (Cooler Master Elite 130). First it was merely aesthetic, but also due the shape, it has a mucb better gravity center. I mean, that's the best place I could place in my room... Since I also use a sketchbook on my desk.

    I built the PC with my brother on late September. It was my 1st built. My brother has built quite a few for a decade, but I think it was his first mini-ITX.

    Specs time!

    i5-6500
    ASUS H110I PLUS
    MSI GTX 950 GAMING 2
    2 x 8GB Crucial DDR4
    SSD Crucial 256 GB
    HDD WD 1TB Blue
    Seasonic 620w

    I bought one of the ram sticks and the HDD two months later. I'm kinda regretful for not buying a modular PSU... Kinda a pain cleaning my PC. Should had spent just a few more bucks.

    I reseached everything on: SoloTodo, a site that compares component prices from all stores of a few South american countries; a couple of FB art groups; LinusTechTips' forum and YouTube channel. Before I didn't even know about compatibilities of each piece, and I knew it was easy to learn. My brother and brother in law merely helped me on saving my budget a bit when I asked for help afterwards.

    Am I happy with this? FUCK YES! At first I was afraid it wasn't going to be enough, but those PC gamers surely have elitist perspectives. It wasn't cheap after all! I just wanted a good PC for 3D rendering and drawing, and don't upgrade for years (maybe only the GPU if I make 3D an income).

    Redout is the only modern game I have atm. It runs at 60fps half of the time with all settings max. The worst is like 20fps, but that's only like 1% of the time.

    So yeah! Long live my PC.
