Description

I use the PC for gaming and school work. Everything works great except the video card is to large for the case I purchased. After a few modifications I was able to put the lid back on it. Works better than expected!!! Great build for the money.

Did you recently purchase that FX-4300? If so, the FX-6300 is cheaper right now. Also before someone says it, should've gotten a Radeon 7870 Ghz edition GPU ;)

I'm curious, what modifications did you make to get the GPU to fit?

Interesting case are you planning on using this as a media center? Just a guess from the 3TB HDD and case. Not sure when you bought the PSU but the Corsair active modular is about the same price. I just ordered one to replace mine.

Why buy a FX-4300 when the FX-6300 is cheaper? Also why build a gaming machine into a htpc case? That's probably why the gpu didn't fit. Should have done a little more research.

I'm sorry but other then the price this is just a odd build.

Things I would've done differently

  1. 2x4 Module of RAM. Could've got Corsair brand for the same price
  2. Did you really need a 3TB HDD? Would've gotten a 1TB Seagate for 59.99 and upgraded the GPU to a 760
  3. Don't necessarily like that case but that's on you and what you need space wise.
  4. Could've gotten a better PSU from Corsair for 39.99

Sorry to be so critical just trying to give some helpful tips for next time

Still and nice PC for the price

  1. Possible that he got the module in a bundle deal.
  2. Probably a media center for movies, and gaming on the side.
  3. See two
