I know I haven’t done a gadget review in a while, but I’m back and ready to get technical.I have been wanting a custom built desktop for a while now and I did research on the best place to buy it. After months and months of research and procrastinating I decided to go with Evetech Solutions in Centurion, who had many great reviews.
I purchased the AMD FX4300 build, with a few modifications.
PC Case: Standard Black Case
Power Supply: Standard 400W Power Supply
Processor: AMD FX-4300 3.8GHz (4 x 4.0GHz Turbo) 8MB Cache Quad-Core
Heatsink & CPU Fan: Standard Heatsink & CPU Fan
Motherboard: MSI 760G Chipset AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz High Performance Gaming RAM
Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 650 1GB Overclocked DDR5 Graphics Card
Sound Card: Integrated 6 Channel HD Audio
Primary Hard Drive: 2TB WD 7200RPM SATA3 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache HDD
Main Optical Drive: 24x Dual Layer DVD +/- Writer
Network Adapter: Integrated Gigabit Network
All this for under R6000 including delivery to my door.
One of my modifications was a GTX 650 1GB DDR5 graphics card.I was offered the GT740 2GB GDDR5 which was slightly more expensive at no extra charge due to my initial card being out of stock at that point in time.With this graphics card I have been able to play all games at high settings, connect to my tv through HDMI and have up to four displays, now isn’t that awesome.
I have been running it for a week now and have experienced no freezing or lagging. I could easily overclock my CPU to 4.2Ghz without heating issues.I would recommend evetech to any gamer or anybody looking for quality and affordable built desktop pcs and speedy service too.They offer delivery to Main Centres in South Africa for only R99 and no charge for collection at their offices. All pc’s come with a 2 year warranty.
