Nice work on the paint job, if you hadn't of said I would be none the wiser.

Well, I'm just curious
Thanks
After many hours researching and asking friends for advice I decided to pick the MSI GeForce GTX 670 (2048 M (N670GTXPE2GD5/OC) Graphics Card..Ideally wanted a Card that would stay cool when I'm gaming and be within my budget range of £100 as it stands this card has not let me down once it plays all the new games on ultra setting and performance incredible well,at idle the GPU is at 26c at max it has never gone over 57c.
I was also lucky to find that this card was on eBay and I got it for £98.50 with free P+P, if you're interested you can find a nice review of my card here http://www.kitguru.net/components/gr...ozr-iv-review/

Not a worthwile upgrade to my gtx 580 though (also bought from ebay two years ago for 120 pounds)
Yeah, that's great... the card maybe old but if You got it with cheap price...why not? =))

@TheDuke
This is budget PC? O_O
This is awesome!
I would have went with AMD over Nvidia though, but its mostly up to people`s personal choice.

Kudos to you dude, this is awesome and I can relate 100% with you on budget building, my last system was a budget build and the appreciation I had for it was massive and the sense of achievement that went with it was just as high. You've done an exceptional job stretching your budget and you've been extremely savvy with brands too.. further kudos for that. Also it's executed in such a clean and tasteful manner which just tops it all off. Very well done.

That is an insanely nice build ! I'd love to have that one, and I'm absolutely in love with that black BeQuiet CPU cooler.

Hi everyone, 3 years on now and my budget PC is still going strong, last week tho I decided to upgrade a few new items, I paid the going price for them so this has nothing to do with my original budget build, but I thought I would share it here none the less, I upgrade the GPU to - Gigabyte AORUS GTX 1060 Xtreme Edition 6GB, and I updated 3 fan to RGB ones - Corsair LL Series LL120 RGB 120mm.
so currently my system looks like this now
