Description

Built this for gaming works good right now. Still need to install Windows but it was my first build and worked the first time.

Forgot to put this in, I plan on getting a R9 280x soon for the gpu. Wiring is also a bit better than it is in the pictures.

Messy inside

16 gbs of RAM was totally not necessary, 8 (or even 6) would be more than enough.

Since this is essentially a $730 build, for gaming I gotta downvote. For that price I'd expect at least a 760 or R9 270x. Less RAM, SSD not needed yet, and better GPU = win

A general rule of thumbs: The CPU should not cost more than the GPu, it just doesn't make sense, you don't need 16 gigs,8 is plenty. Otherwise looks good. How is the Motherboard; I wanted to get a similair one.

Pretty good so far, the gpu was a gift and I plan on getting a R9 280x soon.

You should run it in SLI which I am guessing is what you will do

woh to much money in other things need better video card.

MuneyMan submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

So many things on the gpu. It was a gift and I plan on getting either a 280x or another 7770 later on. Hope that clears things up

Yes it's a bit messy inside and I do not own the cpu cooler on there but I plan on getting it.

You can find some good videos on YouTube to help you with that cable management. It just shows a bit more pride in your work when it looks better. It also improves the airflow.

Yeah just built it today plan on cables tomorrow when I get Windows on it

Whoa, whats up with the 750W power supply, 500W should've sufficed. Other than that I would only recommend Radeon R9 series graphics. How is the Kingston SDD working? Any issues with it yet?

No issues yet and I plan on getting a 280x soon
