Hello everyone in PCPartPicker.
I made this cheap Celeron build here back in January http://pcpartpicker.com/user/DiamondRyce/saved/15ci
I went to AMD's Fan Day 2013 in San Francisco. I waited in line for six hours just to be in the first 120 people to get a free motherboard. Out of the 1000 people who went also went home with a free processor AMD A8-5600k. I am loving this processor and it capability of CrossfireX with my 6670. I also can play my emulator games from PSX and PS2 better than the celeron.
Please excuse my cable management as I am still waiting for my Xigmatek GAIA to be shipped to my house. (EDIT) I meant to say it has arrived but I have not placed it in my case yet. I am a college student so access to my custom pc is very limited. Please wait another week or 2 until I can get access again.
Stay Tuned for more benchmarks and pictures. P.S Just to Be clear, I only bought the PSU, CPU Cooler, and the peripherals.
