    Budget Build

    I had recently built my new PC a few months ago. However, my old comp has a dying PSU or Mobo now, not sure which. But really cant be fucked bothering, either. But, my wife needs one as we play games together, so I would like the best bang for my buck, that has the closest performance as my current new build, look in my sig.


    Would be FINE with micro or mini atx/itx build, too. I do plan on keeping the HDD though, and the CD drive.

    Well that actually depends on your budget IMO; how much are you willing to spend and also are you going to overclock that..

    Team Vulcan isn't that well reknowned but I've built a PC for my friend using it and it hasn't failed so it should be fine. Also if you have no intention to overclock you can minus the fan.

    Yeah...... what the fuck? wat? I've literally never heard of them. But other than that, yeah. It's something that I had been looking at, well fairly similar at least.

    I sell Team RAM in my shop including their Vulcan line. One kit of RAM in my gf's machine was DOA but the rest all tested good. I've had less Team RAM come back than I have with Corsair.

    Actually Team RAM outsells corsair at least 20 to 1, simply because it's default RAM we use in system builds. And we have less come back TOTAL, not per sale. I'd say overall failure rate would be around 1% give or take .2%? Besides, Corsair has one of the highest failure rates for RAM around 3-5%.
