    A decent computer for 0$ If you really want it you can ! That's what i got :

    Hehe yo clickt on this clickbait title ur such a fagit

    jk lov u guys


    So here is my new config :

    Intel Pentium G860 2cores 3 GHZ
    MSI Nvidia GTX 550 TI
    8Gigs of DDR3 ram ( two different sticks , plus my motherboard does only have dual channel so im stuck to 655 MHZ )
    Motherboard : Itel DHO61HO
    Trencendent SSD 128 Gbs
    HDD 500 GB from hitachi 7200 R/m
    Random PSU 480W that i don't even know the brand

    Link for full details : http://valid.x86.fr/wdvv8q

    It's pretty bad to be true , but what's so special about this system is that i got it for free and by myself !

    My parents never wanted to buy a full computer for me , they were also not giving me any money , so i were just f*cked to get a decent computer for gaming , at this moment i didn't knew how to build a computer , i was only playing legos and playing dofus on out crappy familly computer ,

    but one day i were lagging a lot on this computer , and i was like " Hhuh if i had a better computer ...." i basically ragequited the PC , the day later , while waking up i was thinking ( if i knew how to build a computer i could make one for cheap ! ) , that was the day where i started watching computer building videos on youtube , in about 1 whole day i knew how to build a pc , all types of ram , processor sockets , and how to install a OS by yourself .

    i was really happy knowing this , after all of that , i told my mom if she wanted to buy me some computer parts , she said no but she also told me that she could get some old computer from friends so i can "play" with them because they were borken .

    next day i got the broken computer an i were like " huh , it's only the HDD that were dead , the computer was booting fine but HDD were making crispy sounds , the problem is thati didn't had any spare parts to change it , since i never touched any PC Before ...

    about 2-3 weeks later my best friend told me to come play with him in the streets so i said okay , but the first thing i see , is a computer that got throwed in the the front of my neighbors's door ; and what i see inside is a HDD that could work with the PC that i got 2 weeks ago , at this moment i totaly forgot my firend got the pc and took it to my bedroom , took out the HDD , placed and plugged it in the other PC started it , and it worked .... i were seeing the PC booting on windows XP (yup there was an OS on the drive , but i were so hyped i did just plug the hdd in without wondering about the os ) there was a lot of f*cked up thing on the pc but it were working ...

    _____

    Since this day i always search in the streets of my city for throwed Computers and hte config you seen above were made the same way , only parts that i found ( exept the SSD that a friend got me for my Bday )


    For peopole here that are in a similar case as me you guys should try this , obviously it depends where you live , i do live in a rich country (reunion island) so peopole tend to throw computers instead of repairing them

    Now my computer knowledge is pretty good , and i didn't got any viruses or keyloggers on my computer , i always check for spywares and adwares .

    My gaming preformance isn't really good because of the low end CPU , that probably bottlenecks everything , exemple while playing warframe my GPU is used like 50% and CPU is at 100% the hole time and i keep getting lags .

    I keep trying to upgrade this computer and mostly im trying to find a I3-I5 processor , but that would probably require a better PSU , the problem is that im probably already at the highest grade of consumer computers , ( i don't think i will find a 500w + PSU in a consumer product lol ) the only way for me to get this PSU should be in a throwed gaming computer wich is almost impossible cuz most gamers knows how to replace parts
    i might be stuck at this config until i get a job ( im only a lil 16 yo french kid so this is a bit far from me)

    but for a free config i think this is good ! i would like to see what you guys think about that and if you got any situation similar to this one !

    I guess that you did a good job. A better solution would be SE'ing and refunding parts though.

    Gotta have the money first though, which by the sounds of it, he doesn't - Still though OP, very nice commitment.

    I agree, but that's why I mentioned SE'ing.
