My build is a collage of parts harvested from my ventures as a PC Repair hobbist.  The core of my components are from a Dell Inspiron 660s small form factor system that was gave to me by my grandmother when she upgraded, which is a pretty decent system for a person starting out but would not offer any room for upgrading video cards being the low profile case, so I gutted it out and replaced most everything into another Dell Inspiron 537 case I had lying around. Here is the rundown of what's what in my frankenstien rig as of 5/27/16:

Original unaltered Inspiron 660s:

CPU: 1155 LGA Intel Pentium G630 @2.70Ghz (stock with Dell Inspiron 660s)

Memory: 1x4GB DDR3-1600 UDIMM (stock with Dell Inspiron 660s)

Hard Disk: 128GB Team Group Dark SSD (from Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313452&cm_re=team_group_dark_ssd-_-20-313-452-_-Product )

Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 950 2GB GDDR5 SC Edition (snatched from ebay 4 days ago for $99!!! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487157&cm_re=evga_gtx_950-_-14-487-157-_-Product )

Motherboard: Dell 478VN (stock with Dell Inspiron 660s http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA50Z3U48050&cm_re=dell_478vn-_-9SIA50Z3U48050-_-Product )

Audio: Integrated Realtek High Definition Audio (stock with Dell Inspiron 660s)

Power Supply: POWMAX Demon Black Chrome 580W ATX Switching Power Supply ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817163018 )

Speakers: Home Theater 5.1 Surround System Aiwa AV-D58

Operating System: Windows 10 Professional X64 bit

Fans: 2X generic 120mm unbranded stock fans from another system pull

Case: Dell Inspiron 537 (stripped out case only to house this build)

Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech wireless Keyboard & Mouse combo ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823126195 )
 coupled with a Belkin n52te Gamepad ( https://www.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=427310 )

Dual Displays: Sony KDL-46EX600 46 inch Flat Panel TV (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889252165) and Gateway HD2201 HD Display ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824113014 )

DVD DL-RW: Plextor PX-880SA ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827249054 )

And if I must admit its not bad for the price considering all I actually bought for this build was the $99 GTX 950! Everything else I already had from the other builds through the years! Probably could do with some more memory though...
