This build is with a real tight budget, no more than 700$.
I was trying to build a PC were I could upgrade some in the future, my gaming is not really that heavy I like mmorpg, CIV V (those kind of games) and some shooters, so I'm going to be using this PC for games and work.
On the GPU a did a little research and I thought that for the money range that I had this was the best choice for me, maybe in the future I can go crossfire or get a new video card.
On the CPU i wanted something that would work best with the GPU and cheap, the FX-6300 was for me the best choice here.
The motherboard is good enough that it would let me make upgrades if needed, for the price the performance is pretty good, have heat sinks on the north and south bridge, it does not support OC but I'm OK with that.
For the memory not much to say, I got an online Coupon and is a nice memory.
For the case, well I just wanted that one, it have great space for cable managing, came with 2 fans,great space for fans or a radiator, fans in the front, usb 3 in the front, the front fans does not always turn on, you have to move it.
The HDD was on a combo, in the future SSD.
Power Supply, I wanted something good and for not too much money, what is better that a Corsair for that money.
Upgrades on the future: SSD
I like the machine is pretty awesome, I try Windows 8 on it but I did not like it too much so went back to Windows 7. I will post betters pictures.
Any comment would be appreciated.
