This computer was built in the Winter of 2007. The budget was no more than $800. It was for coworker’s son who was attending college at UCF. He needed a computer that could handle his engineering projects as well as allowing him to play his favorite PC games. All the components were purchased brand new. An aftermarket CPU cooler was used in order to achieve a higher overclock. A monitor was not included in this build.
