My cheapo first build

The pictures are pretty bad and a bit outdated so I will update them when I'm home again. I started this build with the small amount of money I had, unemployed at 16, so it consisted of a cardboard piece with the HDD, mobo and PSU on top. The expansion slots also kept pushing themselves out, so I also added 3 packs of playing cards to the build to keep it at an angle. Eventually, I replaced the faithful cardboard with a case after 6 months, giving you the atrocious build with horrid cable management you see before you. I have also OC'd the GPU to +150/+250 core/memory, so its not all terrible.
