AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz Quad-Core OEM/Tray Processor
CPU Clock Rate3.6GHz
CPU Temperature While Idle-
CPU Temperature Under Load-
PNY GeForce GT 640 1GB Video Card
GPU Core Clock Rate900MHz
GPU Effective Memory Clock Rate1.78Ghz
GPU Temperature While Idle-
GPU Temperature Under Load-

I agree. It was a very cost-effective to buy a single stick of memory rather than two, and I like how you saved money on the graphics by buying a terrible graphics card. I also think it was a smart choice to save $20 by buying a lower quality power supply that could ruin your build at any time rather than spending slightly more now to guarantee longevity, because who cares about several years down the road?

You could have gotten a much better GPU with this budget. You spent too much on the motherboard, not enough on the GPU, got a really bad PSU (replace that thing ASAP) and only 1 stick of RAM. You could have easily fit an fx-4300, a 7870, a nicer case, a nicer PSU, and a faster driver into this build.

Well man, dayz is a very CPU intensive game and that 4100 probably won't cut it. On the dayz mod, pretty much any graphic setting below very high isn't going to use the GPU and instead the CPU. I build my friend a dayz machine for the same price with i3 and hd 7770.

it makes zero sense to buy a bulldozer cpu and this point you better off with phenom II X4

Get an APU!! the A8-6600K has higher clock speed than the fx4100, and the built-in graphics and some where near the performance of the GT 640. And half the price of the two together. Spent to much on the motherboard.

Bulldozer CPU, Raidmax PSU, underwhelming graphics card... Ew

Well done looks like a computer built with the intention of playing games. Have you or your friend over clocked the 4100?
