$450 Gaming PC Anyone Can Build!

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

Hey how's it going guys Jack I'm out here with the toasty rose and today we're going to be doing a four hundred and fifty dollar PC that any of you guys can build anyone yeah that's right but first it were from today's sponsor identity guard this video is brought to you by identity guard a website that protects your identity online we use identity guard to make sure that well our stuffs not out there we don't want anybody to go hacking or YouTube or social media so if you guys watch to the end of this video you guys will see just how to sign up and get 33% off and I actually had some stuff that was leaked

And we'll talk more about that the odd spots so let's get right into this video shall we alright guys so as Jackson mentioned this is a four hundred and fifty dollar PC that literally anyone can build all it is is a pre build system that you go buy on ebay and we'll be upgrading it with a 1650 so big thanks to the blind center of Nevada I mean not really we actually ordered it off eBay and it happen to come from the blind Center but this is an Optiplex 740 small form-factor i7 6700 with eight gigs of DDR 4 and no hard drive we paid 247 49 for it after tags just kind of

Crazy because we've done a lot of videos on older delica flexes with 1st and 2nd gen I fives but this could be had for what he said $200 for a 6 gen I 7 which is very capable of playing games so let's go ahead and talk about this thing right here and how we're going to upgrade this thing right here to make it play games so what we have here is an msi gtx 1650 this is a low profile addition because well we thought we're gonna have to use that but interestingly enough if we flip this around even though that this is kind of a small form-factor build we have full size PCI

Lines so and there you could fit a bigger card in here do we recommend it maybe not because once we get this open we'll probably show you guys that there's not really much expansion I mean you're probably still gonna have to stick with the 75-watt max card that does not use external power and right now this is the best card that you can get for that and then another thing that we're doing is because this did not come with a hard drive we have an a data 240 gig SSD this is gonna make the system like 20 times faster the problem with putting Windows 10 on a hard drive

Nowadays is it like hates it just the computer wants to die it makes a lot of really scary noises at you and these are silent and fast alright guys so the next thing we're gonna be doing is just showing you how to upgrade this thing now it's gonna be relatively simple just take off the side panel and we should be able to easily install this thing yeah if you definitely get one that looks like this you might want to clean it off a little bit and that's where like an air compressor if something comes in but yeah and so for the 240 gig SSD we'll be putting that right up here now there's

Not really like a direct great way to mount it but the good news is you can usually find like a small hole here or there which I'm sure will find something that we can just stick a screw in or you can even use adhesive and stick it on top of the DVD drive and be sure to take all the PCI brackets yeah I take every single one out see it to put them all back in afterwards you do end up doing this build the best thing to do is to well now plug this thing up make sure everything works install windows if you do need Windows and be sure to plug it in to this port

Because this is the actual graphics card port and you can use HDMI or DVI depending on which card you got so let's go and plug this thing up last year over 4.5 billion records were compromised worldwide due to data breaches sites included Adobe canva doordash Facebook and many other major sites and services I personally was compromised about the Adobe and canva data breach and with today's video sponsor identity guard I was able to know about it instantly

Almost one in five notified breach victims have experienced identity fraud and he can cost an average consumer up to one thousand three hundred and forty three dollars in up to six months of their time in recovery efforts when there are big data breaches the dark web is where all this information goes and identity guard can monitor the dark web for you and they will alert you when they detect your social security number credit card number financial account numbers health insurance number and more and if for some reason you do become a victim of identity theft identity guard

Will provide you with dedicated support and also cover you through their 1 million dollar insurance policy with stolen fund reimbursement also you do get access to identity guards Safe Browsing extension that will protect you from phishing attacks unsecured websites in tracking scrapes while browsing the web it also serves as a powerful ad blocker you can get your plan for as little as $8.99 a month that's it and you can actually save an extra 33 percent by using the link in our description or go to join identity guard dot-com slash toasty browse to sign up

Today thanks again to identity guard for sponsoring today's video let's wrap it up real quick shall we so as you guys could tell by the benchmarks that we just did this computer actually performs really well for 450 bucks it's not like the absolute best bang for buck but honestly with optiplex is going down and pricing it's pretty exciting that we're able to get a six jin i seven for a little over two hundred dollars and slap a cheap graphics card in there and have a gaming computer of course you have the

Proprietary stuff like a low wattage power supply and the fact that you really can't upgrade that power supply but for a system like this you get really reasonable results you can always go with a new build like our $500 streaming such gaming pc high in the top right corner if you really want to do that but it was actually a cool concept to really dive into some optiplex content again like new arathi plugs it's not just those 2nd gen AI files which we will have another video coming very soon with a extreme dell optiplex it's gonna be kind of crazy but yeah we

Were pretty impressed with this system and i feel like it's going to definitely serve its purpose in the future so big special thanks to identity guard for sponsoring today's video and if you guys want to buy any of the parts he's the links down below because that does help us out a lot and you know don't forget to Like comment and subscribe you will see you guys in the next one good bye it's always up to me together my home bloopers you
