It’s been years since I last changed my desktop. From one of my old post, you can tell that my old desktop was really out of date. It was running on Core 2 Duo processor but it served me well. As usual, I was really hesitant to purchase a new desktop. After some considerations, I made my decision. I decided to build a custom desktop rig within the budget of $1,000 more or less.
It took me a week of reading reviews online and browsing through flyers comparing both specs and price. Once decided, cousin, my sister and myself went down to Sim Lim Square. Initially, i wanted to get the MSI B85-G43 Gaming Motherboard but the salesman insisted that MSI is a bad choice for motherboards. Come to think of it, it’s actually quite true. Judging from my own personal experience, my old motherboard was MSI and it was faulty. My cousin’s old motherboard was MSI and now it’s dead too. Well, it doesn’t hurt to try something new for a change, so i went with his recommendation instead.
