Finished this build last week and can't stop gaming. Works great!
Two words... Cable Management!!!!
1gb in 2013? gl
Lol now see how it does 3 years later.
Well i think its good.
And thats all that matters. On a more constructive note, you should take a bit of time to route those cables, you will get better airflow, cooler temps, and happier parts. I have that same case, so I know managing cables is not so easy, but you can achieve some sense of organization with them. My recommendation: use a lot of zip ties! :)
Yeah I like it, I would have went with a more expensive GPU and a cheaper CPU, but that's what matters like comp said. Just be sure to make it cleaner and you'll notice some nicer temps.
please keep it polite and constructive.
Nice Build. i would have used a better GPU though
I second this. You're really not doing that CPU any justice with that card.
I third this. Probably the best affordable CPU on the market and a completely inadequate gpu.
Also, dat cabling.
Well also he could have bought an 8120 and OC'd it for more money to the GPU. And $140 for an ASRock motherboard? wince
Also you could have bought a 1tb 7200rpm HDD for $55
You mean 8320? The 8120 is old and bad architecture. ASRock is actually a great mobo manufacturer.
Yeah I meant 8320
I fourth this, I liek chicken c:
I fifth all this.
Newegg had the 7870 for 129.99 (159 without rebate) about a week and a half ago. For 150 (or cheaper) I would have went with a 650 ti boost.
pretty sure saphhire r7870 is still 130
guys don't harass the submitter on his build. this is what he wanted. let them do it. You can build all of yours differently that theirs. Don't judge someones budget and say you would've done something different. It is all personal preference.
I think it looks great. I agree that cable management needs some addressing though, if you wanted to use the parts that you do, then that is great. Especially if it works for you and you are happy. +1
The(lack of)cable management makes my eye twitch a bit....
Don't get lost in that jungle of cables lol
I would have went with a 6300 and maybe a 270(x). I saw the r9 270s going for $179-189 and a few versions come with free BF4 on newegg.
Maybe a 760 if you like Nvidia. Oh, and you should really do some cable management, it helped my temperatures a lot just moving a few more cables, so it should help you.
Unless you're streaming, recording, or editing, you don't really need an eight core, a 6350 or if you're on a very tight budget even the 4350 can game, just get at least a 760 or the R9 equivalent. Also, unless you're going to be doing some serious upgrading in the future, you don't really need that expensive motherboard.
Also, I think that PSU is gonna explode some day, so you need to switch it out and fix the cables, maybe upgrade GPU some day.
Then it would be an awesome build. what i worry most about is the PSU. It's a ticking time bomb
Freggen amazing cpu/overkill mobo and poopy gfx card....
