Description

UPDATE: My friend has it, and is she very happy. She's named named it Utena after one of her favorite anime heros. I like the name : P

A much needed upgraded for my friend. More or less threw $300 at some leftover odds and ends and came up with this. I convinced her to let me go a lil over the top on the cosmetics and allowed me UBER cable management time. Kept it as clean and simple as I could. Hope she likes it.

So part choices came from what we had between a few friends.

Small list of case mods: Moved the middle drive cage to be reused as a cable shroud on the bottom of the case. mounted the ssd sideways on the side of the 5.25" bays got a bracket to put the 3.5" drive in a 5.25" slot to free up the middle cage. (now all sata power and drives are in one place. Happy cables)

Added white grippy handles (bolted in)

Lots of acrylic to hind cables, pcbs and such.

A lil stenciling and paint on the gpu and wifi back plates.

white LED fans White 24 pin and sata power

all in the add on's (including fans and cables) cost about $75 Ya that's about it. You don't need a fortune to have a sexy PC.

I hope this inspires more people to put some thought into how their PC looks. To me it's just part of what makes it special : P

This is truly a great example of what you can come up with dedication. I hope this is featured so that others can see that you really don't have to spend a fortune to create a very attractive build. I am sure your friend will be able to appreciate the work you put into this. Bravo, and best of luck!

I would really like to buy this set up here in a few months how do i buy things from this site? Im a let's player for YouTube and the games I really want to bring bring my channel can't run on my pc so please reply if you can

This site isn't really for buying PCs. More for showing them off once built. But it is a great source for part lists. I sent you an email ( the one listed on your youtube) We can talk about a build for you that will power thru the kind of videos you want to do.

Why the 1050ti. Why not the rx 470 for the same price?

customgtp 9 Builds 1 point 4 days ago

The cheapest rx 470 I see on Newegg is $189.99 +$3.99 shipping, better card yes but not same price as a1050 ti. It's a nice build though huh?

Nullarc77 1 Build -1 points 4 days ago

You need to check more than newegg. I got my 470 for $165.

No don't get me wrong.. I looked.. That's not in stock there and I looked on ebay, and Amazon too (was about $190+). Was curious about that card for a build I need to do. Looks like a good card u just happened to get a great price

Your a sweet heart, you. Thanks!

Synchro 1 point 2 days ago

and you need to stop picking through every 1050Ti build and questioning them. Maybe they just like Nvidia more?

OllieManMan submitter 5 Builds 1 point 4 days ago

literally was just on the shelf at microcenter calling out to us. Pretty good for what she plays.

Yup. One piece of white acrylic did the back of the gpu, wifi card, top of the PSU and side of the cable shroud. Pretty easy to cut once you get that hang of it. Just needs to be sanded after you snap it off.

yea if your going to score it you need a guide of some kind hard in place while you pull. Very easy to scratch. I had some angled pieces of aluminum i used as a rail.
