Upgraded Optiplex 380 for Gaming

I decided that making a new computer is simply too expensive for some people, so i upgraded an old Dell Optiplex and made it my own. This is purely to prove a point to a friend that anyone can get into PC gaming no matter what your budget is, now this will struggle and chug with even 1080p gaming on medium settings, but thats not the point here, the point is anyone can build a rig to game. (Note: some parts in the list are slightly incorrect due to there being no option to select the correct model)
