Description

I plan to add a 212evo or similar cooler in the near future, then a 7870/7950 and upgrade the monitor. I know i over spend a bit on the motherboard, but it works and does more then i would need it to so Im happy with it.

As long as it fits what you want, for under $500 thats pretty good

Nice build! Nothing wrong with buying a good mobo. At least you have the option to upgrade to a FX CPU in the future if you need it!

How did you get windows for $20

I got 3 different copies for free from school. Also, you can always download the windows 8.1 preview and use a windows loader/keygen.

Probably through work or school. I was able to get Windows 8 Pro for $10 through my school.

Hook me up with a copy? I'll pay you ;)

If only it were that easy ;) You could look for a cheap upgrade version and activate through cmd

I got the key from a guy on r/hardwareswap and used my friends disk to install it.

That is a great build. I love the 200r!

Don't scoff at adding another hd 7770. They can be had for under $100 now if you shop around, and with a 1600 x 900 monitor the limited amount of video ram shouldn't be a problem. I'm running two of them and I get better than a stock HD 7870 on my 1280 x 1024 monitor.
