Nice looking build with quality parts and brands. love the look of the case and your cable management is great. How many fps are you getting running games?
LEPA or Lepatek has been around in europe for quite a while, they are a great brand just not known here in the americas.
Kingston SSD are very reliable and offer a good price point.
Yes it is best to use quality brands and parts in a build.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
You should have listed only the new parts that you purchased and listed the old parts you are reusing as purchaced on you list. I agree that you could do a little better on cable management given more time and thought even with a old case and PSU. I am curious about your SSD purchaces and why not a HDD 1tb that run for $70 or less, are you reusing a HDD? If this is for gaming why not spend $15 to $20 more and get a R9 270 or 270x? OC that CPU it will take 4.0 with no problems and unpark your cores in windows you will see vast improvements.
I look foward to your build once you have completed it, as with all builds they never seem to be finished because we always upgrade when we can.
yes it does.
Your RAM is very good but when you install it you will probably have to go into BIOS and Manually change the speed, most MOBO read RAM at 1333mhz. Your heatsink is ok for you it is a choice most people either put in a Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo or go with a expensive and top of the line Noctua heatsink, then there is closed loop liqued cooling heatsinks, corsair makes some great ones, it all depends on your budget and what you want it to look like. Remember some of the larger air cooled heatsinks interfear with some tall RAM sticks.
All looks good and I am sure you will enjoy, good build.
It is a great CPU and right now I think they are on sale, go for it.
Agree dont need a sound card. You dont need a i7 cpu for gaming it is a waste of money. The i5 4670k would be the best cpu for a gaming pc. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106.html
Your MOBO is way overkill and you can get a less expensive one from ASUS or other mfg.
This would give you everything you need with better parts for only a couple of $ more and your Battlefield 4 experiance will be much better. To save some $ I would go with the FX 6300 and OC to 4.0ghz or higher and un-park your cores in windows to get the most out of any muliple core cpu. The MOBO is the best you can get for AMD, the RAM is better and you can get cheaper but why would you. The case speaks for itself as you can see it is nicer with better features. Overall this would get you going.
I think this build would be better for your gaming PC build. Note you can get a top of the line 290x for alot cheeper. You need a 990fx MOBO to OC with the 83xx series CPU's.
where did you find that gpu for that price?
funny a long time ago I had the same case with the same apu build. +1
A word to the wise, if inside of your house is 30c so is your PC and then some. Remember unless your running freon your cpu is going to be the same or hotter than the ambient room temp.
+1 for the build. Would have liked to seen more of a description and more photos.
Nice looking build and was glad to see someone do a build with this case. Overall looks good and I am impressed with your part selection.
Nice looking build with some really nice parts. Love the case.
Love the case and what you put into it. Super build.
Wow wish I had that kind of budget, nice build that looks really good with the theme you choose. I like you custom approach made the build all that much better.
All looks good but if you can afford it get a 990fx chipset MOBO.
ok thanks for the info.
Pillapines is different than where you are from, he bought the parts and had them shipped half way around the world. It is a nice build and very expensive in pesos. Since heat is a killer of performance you need to get more case fans since it is so HOT in the PI, you can get those at your local stores. A Surge Protector/Batterybackup should also be purchaced due to the crappy power you get in the PI.
Really nice Budget build with some great parts, looks really nice and you should enjoy OCing it. +1
So is the 1150 when Haswell-E comes out this year.
Great CPU, GPU, RAM and all your parts work good together. Nice build. +1 You will enjoy OCing that CPU way better to OC than the 4670k.
One word, "Beautiful!" You picked great parts that all came together in a beautiful build that you should be proud of.
Here is a site that lets you plug in your information and will calculate the watts needed.
As a generic test it says 744watts needed.

Because of the video editing, I'd tend to recommend the 4770K, but since it's not hardcore, your focus is gaming.
Check out this review:
and particularly these pages:
You can see you don't get the same gaming performance out of the i5. Multi-threaded games like BF3 and BF4 are an increasing trend. I'd still go with the 4770K.
Just a little more info to help you decide.
Do you have any parts you are going to re-use are is this a complete new build?
see if this will fit the budget, APU need lots of RAM and speed to perform at peak performance.
For the price difference for gaming the 4770k is not worth the small increase in performance at gaming only. But as a overall CPU the 4770k is better, also there are locked CPU's that can be found at a better price for what you want.
You will need a 970 chipset for the fx 6300 or better to get the 990fx chipset but they are more expensive. I modified your build to give you some ideals.
I think it is funny how you bought expensive parts and cheap parts at the same time. For gaming you CPU is overkill, and your video card is not enough. Good cheap RAM and Expensive SSD. Cheap PSU expensive case and mouse and monitor. Cheap heatsink and HDD. But over all a decent build which I hope you enjoy.
Better performance for your budget.
This would be the same or better performance at a lower price, note that the 270x is just a factory OC of the 270, you can OC it yourself. CPU the 3350 is the best bang for the buck you can get. You can save money by getting a different case.
your build looks good. If you plan to OC the CPU you will need a aftermarket heatsink like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo. I would change the MOBO to the G46. And you can save some money by getting a R9 270, you can OC that yourself to the speed of the 270x.
This would give you the max performance for your budget:
You bought a unlocked CPU lets see you OC it. Should be able to get from 4.0 to 4.5 with no problems. Also make sure you unpark you cores in windows OS.
+1 for your part selection.
Let us see some OC marks on the CPU, you should be able to get 4.0 to 4.5 easy.
Nice build with some nice parts. Let see some OC on that CPU.
Why buy a unlocked CPU and then NOT OC?
First upgrade that you need to buy is a heatsink for your Fx-6300, go with a Cooler Master hyper 212 EVO and it will let you be able to OC your CPU. I run mine at a super stable 4.0ghz with all cores unparked in WIN7 with a CM TX3 Heatsink.
I went with a SSD for my OS and all the programs I use daily, plus BF4, wow such a huge difference and I spent only $50 while on sale. It is like night and day you will wonder how you ever survived before whith one. 100gb is a minimum for the large OS now of days and maybe 2 games.
