Description

It my first build. I had pc that I brought from best buy 6 year ago. Well I gotten slower by day. I decide to build one because it cheaper than buy it. Actually, I want Nzxt Phantom 410 white but it over my budget. I wish this case need to have more space for cable management. Well, I try my best to manage cable. It look good for me now. I pull a HDD from old PC and put it in a new one. It got boot up and running smooth. Thank for viewing.

WHOA, the deals you got on the CPU/mobo are insane!

great build, probably could have gotten a non stock cooler though as those AMD cpus run a little hot :s

I think the part selection is pretty good here. The only thing I might change would be the RAM; Microcenter typically has overpriced RAM. i think the cable management is pretty good considering the case you were working in. You did a good job for your first build. You might have been able to save a few bucks by shopping at places other than microcenter for a few things though.

I kinda impatient about order online. Some DDR3-1600 that I want ran out 2 days before I arrived there. I really want that too but it over my budget.

This will be my exact build. Great minds think alike :) but mine would be corsair 200r with a corsair h60 but other than that exact build. Don't worry about the RAM comment. Test found so little difference between DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 when it comes to games, you won't even notice the difference.

zackza submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

I though about buying DDR3-1600 and Corsair 200R too but it ran out of stock when I arrived. I play some games it ran very smooth than my old pc that use 2GB DDR2 pc-something.

Good solid bang for your buck.

Thanks. I plan about a month.

Nice build! Next thing I would do is pick up a cheap 1T drive for mass storage and other stuff. The FX-8320 in my eyes is the best bang for your buck CPU. Better then the 8350 since you can just OC the 8320 to 8350 specs. Just get yourself a nice Cooler Master H212 EVO if you chose to do that.

I though about it too. I saw WD 1TB for $59.99. I might brought one on Black Friday sale. Also the CPU took me a month for me to decide which one do I choose between 6300 or 8320. It just $30 diffences. So I decide go big or go home. I chose 8320.

Nice pick! I'm pretty sure the difference between the 6300 vs 8320 is diffidently $30.

Thanks

Very nice, this is very close to what I'm deciding to build, but I like your selections better than mine so I shall reference some of your pickings.

Very good, this is pretty close to what I'm aiming for (although you got the semi-modular and not the non-modular version, darn you :P. Also, what country are you from? I could tell by your description, lol.

I'm from Thailand and I live in USA. I am not very good at gramma. XD

Firecrackers 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

That is okay! Bit it is a nice build you got

Apach3 2 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

you have my +1. only thing i'd suggest differently would be slightly faster RAM, but that's just me being nitpicky.

zackza submitter 1 Build 1 point 19 months ago

I'll buy one on Black Friday deal.

Nice budget build.

ryanspics 1 point 14 months ago

You may want to put this through a grammar check, how does it run higher end games?
