So last year I got into the Retained Fire Brigade and to treat myself for the hard work I put into my training I build my first PC, which was a budget build using and Intel i3 processor and an AMD 7850.
I passed another year and so as I promised myself last year to build another new pc using the money I sold on the last one and savings from 4 months work, I spent a lot of time considering Intel again and the use of another but more powerful AMD GPU.
Through looking at this site and also some influence form The Tek Syndicate I read/watched reviews of the FX 8350 and decided to gamble on that instead. Keeping a close eye on the popular GPU's on Pc Part Picker I had also bought the GTX 770 at a good deal.
My build is base on a Gold/Black colour configuration and using white silent fans around the build (also to note all fans are 140mm apart from the cup cooler) The parts used in the build came out to look a lot better than I had first thought they would and this shows well in the photos (Quality photos to be added)
My Display... well I had build this rig for 1080p gaming but I at the moment have a 1366 x 768 monitor. Christmas is coming and i couldn't just think of myself at this time of year so money has to be save around other things, hopefully I have been a good boy this year and will have one by the end of the year.
All games are set to high settings and when I have some more time I will put benchmarks up, but saying that just ask for fps I will be able to detail that in the description if you have a game in mind. http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7631105 .
