    I love this video even though its five years old and what you can get for the same money now is a little different. It inspired me to do the same thing. I was able to pick up an old HP Workstation XW8400 off of FB marketplace for $50. It has two Xeon 5160 dual core processors and 8gb of ram. It also came with a Quadro FX1700 GPU, which kind of sucks. I'm looking for a new GPU at the moment but unfortunately Im pretty broke so I cant get anything right now, but I think this thing has the potential to be a decent little machine. I hope im able to do something with it soon. Thanks guys.

    I love these types of pc building videos where they go on Craigslist and look for parts. I’d like to see a series where they find overpriced pc builds on Craigslist and give them a reality check on how much they’re charging. Fx 6300 with a 500 psu and a 750ti boom $800

  • DogeDoesGaming

    The Athlon 64 3800+ would support 64-bit, it just had windows 7 32-bit installed. Of course when even the r7 240 would be bottlenecked by it, it really doesn’t make any difference lol

  • DoctorX17

    fun fact: that R7 240 is around 13,664% faster than the GeForce 6100 the motherboard had on it. Too bad they could get that RX460 running, that would be 51,221% faster...

    • hJacob

      sounds like user Benchmark site

    • o

      Why tf do you know this so exactly?


    Most 32bit systems can use 4gb (more likely is the cpu supports pae). if it is ddr2 it would be cheap to get more. although ddr3 might be a bit more expensive. still cheap though. and the board most likely supports it.


      also if im not mistaken that sticker on the front says 64bit. so you could install a 64bit OS on it if thats the case.

  • Corristo89

    The tipp is really good: Try to find a cheap PC (go for something with a dualcore like an AMD X2 or Intel Core 2 Duo), put in a cheap SSD for the OS and maybe a game or two and install a decent GPU like an AMD R7 or older R9 (the R9 270X is pretty cheap) to give it some gaming performance. 1080p is usually possible and stepping down to 900p usually isn't a problem.

It runs games like starbound and minecraft but of course since I’ve gotten it I’ve grown out of those games. Does anyone know what I could possibly get to add to the pc to make it play beefier games? Preferably on the inexpensive side.

Anyway my point is if you EVER wanna get ur hands dirty....i have hacked the Acer bios so you can OC a bit on that power and use a lil pin mod to oc ur cpu! Lol good old days.

    I can't sell a computer in Russia for $ 40 with a dual-core processor and two gigabytes of RAM...

    In my opinion dont get a gaming labtop, they could run from 600 to 1000, you can get a decent pc, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and accessories for that price

    sad that this is slightly worse than the new macbook thats fully loaded

      +Razurio That's correct! But, if you can afford a MacBook you surely can afford a pc that will run fast enough for all the office work + gaming for sure! IOS does run a lot better than windows but most of people do gaming nowdays so theres no point of having a MacBook if youre a gamer, unless youre a youtuber aswell so you can edit your content(you can still edit it with a decent desktop pc)

      Dezzends You can do all that on Windows too if you wish.

      Dezzends well if your stupid like me you don't make much money!

      @Dezzends GTFO you have no idea what youre talking about. I have a 5 year old laptop that I still use and it is still above average. Macbooks however always need updating and it takes 2 years for your macbook to become old already. Also not all windows laptops are made of plastic. And video editing software doesnt show how fast a machine is dumbass.

    • Razurio

      VinBones it is way better optiomised than any windows software like video editing software is faster even with bad specs thats a fact but the shit is to expensive im using windows myself Rarly any windows laptop is good to much plastic shit Or it breaks fast

    I once tried playing Sonic Generations and Crysis 2 on a Pentium 4 with a very very old ATI graphics card with only 1 GB of RAM (yes only 1GB ram). I then tried running Unreal 3 on it... yeah I was a broke kid back then

    just upgrading an office pc might be the way to go for if you have a more modern day one
