As you can see the Build photos do not include the Radeon HD 7770 1 Ghz edition or the extra HDD which were added 2 months later, but the essence of the build is there.

This was my first build from the ground up ( I had tinkered with stuff before but never a full build). It turned out really well, no major problems building, a very simple build. Runs really cool the Freezer 7 Pro is amazing and the 7770 never get above 60 degrees C.

Edit: This build was done in March of 2012, the FX6300 was not released until October of that year. The OCZ PSU I had from a previous system.

I like this build over all. It's well balanced.

Nice build +1! I don't know why it's so hard for people to read the description...

You probably didn't need that separate cooler, or a power supply that big. Other than that, it looks pretty good for the budget.

I would've went for a fx-6300 for only $10 more.

Reading the description helps.

Plus one for cable management! But seriously, you could have done a bit better for the price.
