Hey guys I made this build specifically to show that you can have low budget $700 budget and still outperform most high end single GPU setups in GAMING! (Specifically GTX 770 and or 7970 w/ Intel i7's <--Even @ OC'ed levels) GTX 770 GPU & i7 CPU alone will cost as much as my whole setup, just my food for thought.
FX 6300 Oc'ed at 4.62 Ghz @ 1.428 Volts Prime95 stable 24/7 Stable (100% Load Prime95 for hours on end temps never exceed 60C)
7850 Crossfire Setup
1: HIS HD 7850 2GB Max OC @ 1205Mhz Clock -- 1450Mhz Memory @ 1.225 Volts (5800Mhz Effective Memory) 24/7 Stable (Full stress test load temps never exceed 65c)
2: Asus HD7850 2GB Max OC @ 1135Mhz Clock -- 1300Mhz Memory @ 1.210 Volts (5200Mhz Effective Memory) 24/7 Stable (Full stress test load temps never exceed 55c)
Remember when on Crossfire setup slowest GPU card will downlock your highest GPU clock card to equal levels. (I did not win the silicon lottery with my Asus 7850)
2x 120MM Exhaust (TOP) 1x 120MM Exhaust (Rear) 1x 120MM Intake (Side Panel) 1x 120MM Intake (Front)
NOTE: All price listed were exact BASE prices not including taxes or Mail in rebates. Remember I did wait weeks to get best deals, http://www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales/new/ will help a lot for people looking for best deals.
Cable management is not good because its impossible to hide all my extra case fan wires, also the case itself doesn't have enough holes to hide the wires properly
All TEMPS were monitored using latest HWINFO64 version, I have it running on backround 24/7
Asus HD 7850 I bought off craiglist for $100. Asus Motherboard purchased OPEN BOX @ new egg Intel SSD I already had laying around from years ago
Total build cost $695
