Bang for my Bucks!

My budget build. I have worked with almost no budget over the last 18 months wheeling and dealing to put this build together. I started off with an old Athlon ii x4/gtx 460 pc I build approx 8 years ago and began upgrading every single component, sometimes multiple times! until arriving at my current build.

I learned a lot, made many mistakes, and enjoyed the journey which I still regard as ongoing!

I am going for a balance of looks vs gaming potential.

I am looking at sourcing a GTX 1070 for my next upgrade.
