Description

I got the computer put together and it posted on the first try. I'm in the process of moving everything over from my old computer so I haven't had time to work on overclocking. The prices have been adjusted for combo discount and mail in rebates. I already had a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and the optical drive is out of my old computer. I'll be using it for light to moderate gaming.

Very good budget build. +1

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

My bad, the psu was $29.99 and the GPU was $119.99. Thanks.

I have this exact same mobo. I loved it. Did you have any problems with it

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

No problems with the mobo, worked great.

Similar to mine

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 13 months ago

Did you overclock yours and if so, how did it turn out?

 
 
gabwars3319 1 point 13 months ago

Oh i haven't built it yet

 
 
EcoMCG [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Hows the mobo dude? I am thinking of getting it. I love MSI !

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

The board has worked great but I think I'd go with the 970A-G46 because it has heat sinks on the vrm.

 
 
EcoMCG [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

im sorry im really new to this but what is a vrm?

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

It stands for voltage regulator module. The 43 board doesn't have heatsinks on them while the 46 does. Sometimes it can cause heat problems when you overclock. I've got a slight overclock on my cpu and haven't had any problems.

could this support bf4 on high/med settings?

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

I don't have BF4 yet but I'm guessing it should run it on medium.

I downloaded a bunch of games off Humble Bundle and have been playing them so I haven't had a chance to get BF4. It should easily run it on medium settings and might be able to run it on high. Thanks.

Nice build and great cable management! Can I ask how the GPU is working for you? I'm interested in getting the same card.

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks. I'm mainly running older games such as BF3, Crysis 2 etc, and it does a decent job on them.

 
 
EcoMCG [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Hows the GPU

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

Like I told Lacota The Narwhal, I mainly run the older games and it does a decent job on them. I'm sure it could handle the newer games but it would be on medium settings.

 
 
Camboy05 1 point 7 months ago

I am looking at the same cpu and gpu. Does it game well?

 
 
Dawg77 [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

In all honesty I downloaded a bunch of games off Humble Bundle and have been playing them. It's done a good job on the older games but I haven't tried it on the newer ones. I'm guessing it should do a pretty good job on medium settings, it all depends on the game I suppose.

 
 
Camboy05 1 point 7 months ago

OK thanks!
