Built her because I was bored and presently experiencing a pandemic. It is my first build. I actually got it right the FIRST time around. No errors. I surprised myself. She's really just an entry level PC for now. She only has an APU right now and I plan to get a better RYZEN 5 CPU in the future. Just wanted to get her up and running. All I really play is Halo and American Truck Simulator... Some Sims 4 every now and then. She can run CSGO on HIGH settings pretty well without any stutter. I'm just bad at it.

Complete Desc- (Purpose, Mistakes, Progress and Results) This build is based on a hp pavilion 590 office pc i got back in 2018 for cheap. As my first system, I preferred a prebuilt pc instead of a DIY because I did not had enough knowledge about pc building or in tech at the time. My goal with this pc was to upgrade it down the line for it to play games like racing sims, go casually in shooters and do some other slower paced games. I also planned to do some light productivity, aswell for work. But since I had a tight budget, I did my best with what i had which was just enough for a good used starter gpu and a few needed add-ons and adapters to make this all work as I later found out the prebuilt not being compatible with the parts in many ways. The results of doing all of this were questionable but surprisingly the pc worked and it did what I mostly wanted to do with the only major issue being how loose and flimsy everything was. Months later, I only did an upgrade to the storage with an Optane module to speed up the slow hdd storage. However, I wanted to make a big improvement on my setup as to be honest, this whole thing was a mess. So I started to learn more about diy and technical stuff of pcs that I did not explored before to come up with a more ideal build. When I got another good amount of budget earned, I did my most significant change and upgrade after a year later (on 2020) where I revamped everything from scratch to how it is shown in pictures. The previous motherboard, case and other unnecessary things were removed but the reusable items such as the processor, ram, hdd, optane, psu (bought as add-on initially) and gpu were kept. Rebuilding the pc with the proper resources and tools could not been easier, miles better than adjusting and making stuff work on my previous prebuilt setup. Although it still has some mis-perfections, I consider this an accomplishment and all the stuff I intended to do with my pc originally just work better overall now. I guess I should have chosen to do and learn diy in the first place lol. I put a picture of the original “build” to show where I started with this.

It's my only desktop, and it's the only one I'll likely have in the foreseeable future. I only got a job about 14 months ago, and this PC has been sort of a passion project for me. Originally, I had hoped to spend about $1000 dollars accumulated over a 3 month period on this rig, however, my expectations were out of line to say the least. At the end of last summer, I had saved around $350 for the computer I wanted to build. I had high hopes for this computer, and I wanted it to be able to handle anything I could throw at it right from the get-go as soon as possible, that including video work, Photoshop, Unity Engine, Virtual Reality, and more than 2 tabs of Google Chrome. Initially, I had started with an AMD Ryzen 2200G, no GPU, only 1TB HDD space for games (Yes it had an SSD in it to boot, I'm not that insane), a $28 dollar case straight off the boat from China, and a measly 4x3 LCD monitor from 1999. Luckily, I was able to net an AMD Radeon RX570 a paycheck after I completed the initial building process, so I wasn't stuck on integrated graphics for too terribly long. However, what I was stuck on for a long time was the dreaded POST codes. My motherboard was an older revision or something akin to that, and as such, my CPU just didn't work. Nada. Nope. It took me a good long while to realize why it wouldn't POST at all until I read up on AMD's Boot Camp program. So I ordered a loaner chip from AMD, an Athlon chip if I recall correctly, and was able to get the machine up and running a couple of hours after it came in. I ran this setup for a long while until around March of this year. I've gotta say, Virtual Reality does NOT pair well with a $100 CPU and a $80 GPU. I ended up finding a decently priced 1070TI off of eBay, and that's what I've been running for the past couple of months. However, a $100 CPU still doesn't pair well with Virtual Reality, so I ended up selling a PS3 I had jailbroken (My side hustle at the time) and my old RX570 on eBay for some high prices in hindsight. Both sold, and I upgraded to a 2600X that was on sale at Microcenter for $100 down from $210 as soon as I got my money from Paypal. Man, I love Ryzen pricing. We also ended up running some CAT5e cables through our house's rafters in the basement, and I was able to run a LAN connection to my PC that was previously all the way across the house from our WIFI router, an old Linksys model that just couldn't hold the 20+ devices on our network. I changed out my case for an NZXT H500 earlier this summer, and it is downright simple to build in compared to my old case. I no longer have any desk space, but at least I now have proper RGB! I probably won't upgrade this any time soon except for the PSU, which is just a ticking time bomb at this point. It really has no issue tackling whatever I throw at it and it tends to just work. I went from my old 13" Dell Latitude E6330 to a 128GB Surface Go just because I don't need another powerful device, just one for taking notes and one for doing workloads or games. It's quite a useful machine for the price and it was a lot of fun to build, especially considering all the money came from sweeping the floors of a local Mom and Pop shop. I'm glad to live so close to a Microcenter just because the deals there are just so good sometimes. The new parts in my computer are only new because they needed to be or they were at an extremely low price at a store that was only 30 minutes out. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

It is a budget build for my home use; I do a lot of sound producing for work and my studio system packs some power but it is a Mac, still. I wanted to be able to do some light gaming, also do some work like sound and video editing, some light graphic design, lots of proof reading for commercial spots and lately lots of video conferencing. I use a TV as a monitor, it is full HD and 60 Hz so it is what I need. This system is my personal rig and it's located on my bedroom so I also use it as a media hub. As this was gonna go in my bedroom I took the design very much into consideration and I put a lot of thought in to it when I was figuring out my budget for this build. The White LED Fans and the back RGBW LED on the TV make the whole work space feel on the same page. Even with the white LED Fans not being able to change colors, the other colors on my Logitech keyboard and the TV's Backlight make everything pop. I started building this system gradually. That last piece that came in was the GPU, I started with my old GTX 740 from my old system to start using it and upgraded it to my GTX 1650 as soon as I could, I have it paired with a Ryzen 5 2600. It is a budgewt system, but fairly powerful. I still think I have two weak links on which compromises were made, which are my A320m Motherboard and the 450W EVGA power supply. They limit how much I can upgrade this system so I'm looking to first get the motherboard as I get ready for a Ryzen 4000 Series upgrade also the Power supply has to go If I'm getting a better GPU so I'm thinking on swapping both on the same run. Love the Micro ATX format on my motherboard, I paired it with the Yeyian case I got in Mexico as I come back and forth from TX to Monterrey and I love how it sits on my desk. It is a budget case but I love the looks. I had an issue with my gigabyte Motherboard and my case as I wasn't able to get the front USB 3.0 working, and after a chipset driver upgrade, bios upgrade and looking for solutions, I figured It was either an issue with the motherboard or the case header, so I let it go and I'll wait for the next upgrade. This first build just made me want to spend more time and money on my set up which I'm very much looking forward to do.

After enjoying my Prometheus v3 build for a few months and seeing that the Ryzen 5 1600 was still on sale, I replaced the guts of an old Pentium 4 class machine with another build in December 2019. I use this machine to run virtual servers for my development purpose, and I stuck a graphics card in it this spring to also do Folding@Home. I know the 20 year old case desperately needs replaced, and the hard drives I use to store the virtual machines on are aging, but I like to get value out of the parts I buy so it was good enough at the time for a home server.

I built this computer in March 2019 to upgrade my old AMD FX-8320E computer. I use it for some light gaming and some hobby development work in .Net and SQL Server. This spring I upgraded the power supply and graphics card for Folding@Home use. In the future I'm considering replacing the 17 year old Antec Super LanBoy case, and eventually getting a new motherboard and processor. I name this computer Prometheus because I tend to rip out its guts and rebuild it every couple of years.

So the name does not have anything to do with this build. I'm trying to make a build that will be powerful enough to allow me to run my podcast and game. Now I'm not looking to play games like sekiro or anything to demanding. I'm thinking more of divinity original sin 2 or most of the total war games. My budget is 300 that's why I have the 4 gb of ram, but will go 350 if need be. This is pretty much a start up and look to upgrade over time.
