    Bulding a computer with 0$

    So hi mpgh , today i finally finished buiding my new computer , but a computer that costed me 0$

    Im just a little 16 yo french kid and my mom doesn't want to spend money on a Gaming computer , so im left with a laptop ( i hate laptops ) that i got for free at school

    its called the "POP" , basically you get a free computer running on ubuntu with a locked bios so you can work with it at your house ( obviously i cracked the bios and installed windows on it )


    Basically what i do sometimes is get out to the town and try to find some PC's that peopole throws away , i got ask to their door if they do have an old computer , or i look into some grabage piles

    i already built some computers from scratch and recovered parts , but they were alway shitty as fuck ( like 80 GB of HDD , 512 MB or ram , with no grpahics card and running on XP )

    But later i found enought parts to make a decent computer ( still shitty )

    Here is what i ended up with : https://valid.x86.fr/etu8i3 < Here is the precise references of the parts

    Nvidia GeForce 210 ( yes this does exist )
    8GB of DDR3 Running at 655 MHZ ( cuz this random motherboard only have dual channel slots , and i use two different RAM sticks yolo )
    Intel Pentium 3GHZ ( 2 cores )
    Some random Hitachi 500GB HDD at 7200 Rotations/min + another 320 GB HDD
    Windows 7 Ultimate crac.... i mean activated

    #Pure gaming PC case
    And yes 1 ram stick actually does have glowing leds on it ( it is the Nanya ram stick , you can't see it but the stick itself is black/gold )


    No this is not dust or whatever , this is anti-rust , cuz i live close to the beach , the air is salty as hell and computer always get rusty as fuck after 1 month


    still really far from a gaming computer , but really decent for a thing where i didn't used any money on it

    So i want to know if some popole there have done the same thing , if im not the only one , and what you guys think about it .

    EDIT : I just reviewed the computer to know the aproximative price of all the stuff into this PC and i got a really big suprise! ; my motherboard it is the intel DH61HO wich is not a consumer grade motherboard , and costs 171$ and My hitachi HDD costs 230$

    I didn't expected to see that i had parts with a so high value on my PC <.<

    If this computer was new this would be it's aproximative value : 474$ ( the ram sticks , the second HDD and the case are unknown so for all of them you can add about 100 - 20$ to the value witch give us about 600 $ )

    Really impressive considering you made it yourself from spare parts and put no money into it. Good job, OP.

    Nice work kid, hopefully you can upgrade that baby in the future.
    Welcome aboard to sort-of-not-shitty PC.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Add me on skype if you would like and I can try to tell you about it and how to get into it. I got $150 speakers and a fitbit surge coming to my house within the week.

    I ended up SE'ing 8 Fans from bitfenix and also a case from NZXT with little effort. I was trying to SE one of the new i7 processors but unfortunately they couldn't ship to me for some reason so I bailed on it.
