CPU and MOBO were a combo at newegg.com only reason i went with Biostar. The Biostar works well for what I payed for and has nice USB 3.0. The MOBO was also missing the ports to connect the audio and it didn't have enough SATA cables so I had to buy 2 more. Memory: I got this memory because first of all it was on sale and cheap, secondly I read up that since the APU is running of system memory the faster the better. Hard Drives: Got them for free from some one I know. Does the Job and I could also if i wanted too raid the 2 ssds but right now I just have 3 standalond drives. One for games, one for the boot, and the 500gb for the word docs and such. Case: Downright cheap, I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this case, for 10 dollars what you say right? The only thing bad about this case is that there are no USB 3.0 and the wires look DIRT quality. PSU: the Antec is just great, no problems, and got it on sale with a rebate for 16 bucks, AMAZING. Windows 7 Pro: Great OS I traded my code fort he never settle bundle from a previous purchase of a 7850. This was my first computer that I built myself and guess what I broke? the Wifi adapter, 5 dollars down the drain :( better than the CPU though. Thanks to all the people who helped me on buildapc, buildapcsales, and softwareswap. you made my computer possible. My cable management is awful but i blame it partly on the case due to its bad design Testing: Here is what I got when I tested this computer under various games.
TF2 (1080p High settings)- Steady 45 FPS sometimes dipped down to 30 and went up to 60.
LOL (1080p Medium settings)- steady 50 fps dipped down to 30 in team fights, at base idle 60 fps.
CSGO(1080p Defult setting)- Steady 35 FPS sometimes to 45 when Idle and sometimes dropping to 20 FPS.
Note: I didn't include the DVD/Cd Drive in here because it was just temporary for installing drivers, but i do plan to get a bluray drive.
