As you can probably tell by the name, I didn't have much money to work with I believe the total was $443.00 and I still managed to fit a Fx-6300 and a 7850 2gb in it.
Purposes: Minecraft with Shaders, Garry's Mod, TF2, DOTA 2, Far Cry 3 and the list goes on and on.
Part Choices and Explanations:
CPU: I got it on sale for $20 less than its original price. At first I was going for the FX-4300 but then realized that the 6300 was $5 more so thanks to the help at this community (PCPartPicker) I decided to go with the 6300. And it was 2 cores for $5 you cant beat that.
Motherboard: It is a 9 series chipset, AM3+, 32 gb's of RAM supported, ATX, and it was bundled with the FX-6300 for $39.99.
RAM: It is 1.5v, it's corsair, it has a beastly heatsink, and I was planning on overclocking the RAM for absolutely no reason.
Hard Drive: FREE!!!!
Graphics Card: This is the part I know I might get some hate on. I went with the 7850 because it fit within budget and I needed a strong GFX card it was the cheapest 7850 with 2gb's I could find it was even cheaper than some 1gb 7850's. WHY NOT?!?!
Case: Its Cheap, Its ATX, Its Thermaltake
PSU: It has 4xSATA, 2xMOLEX, 2x4 Pin CPU POWER, and 24 PIN Motherboard connector. It was bundled with the case for $25 I cant argue with that.
Comments are welcomed, criticisms are invited so long as they aren't mean, and thanks for reading.
Thanks to: RyneSmith (PSU Help), skemble (Overall Help), swagnuggets123 (A Cool Name that I decided to add) and all of the PCPartPicker community.
Pictures do not have the RAM in it yet because it hasn't arrived. I will post pictures of it with the RAM as soon as I get it.
CABLE MANAGEMENT IS ALMOST NON EXISTENT IN THIS CASE (<------That was punny)
