Description

Built this computer for all my gaming and school needs. Works brilliantly on skyrim and assasins creed and wont dip below 50 on ultra on either.

Yes, I got the motherboard in a combo with my case for $80 off, it didn't actually cost $20. I may soon invest in a better cooler as soon as I can afford one and will then begin any sort of overclocking.

Update: Now playing at 1440p w/ a Zotac Gtx 980

It was meant to be a joke, I didn't think it over completely but no loss

you have vents on the bottom of your case. you should mount your psu the other way. you can hide your cables easier that way

Great build, amazing for the price +1

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Thanks I appreciate it!

Really good for the price. Too bad for no SLI or Xfire support but this is really good anyway!

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

I knew I was giving up crossfire/SLI when I bought the motherboard though the offer was too much to pass up.

Bladedrummer 4 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

Yeah man(or gal), for that price you made a killing. Might be worth investing in a 1920x1080 monitor since your gpu is fully capable of handling it.

I'm not sure about OP's preferences, but I actually think 1600x900 is the perfect resolution if you want to max out games on a gtx 760. I used a 770 on 1600x900 because i wanted to max out crysis 3 and the constant 60+ fps on graphically intensive games was worth the trade off of lower resolution.

Bladedrummer 4 Builds 3 points 16 months ago

I have a gtx 670, like the OP, and I would deffo choose higher resolutions as long as I'm above 45/50 fps. I feel like the game looks better on medium settings at 1920x1080 than on ultra at 1600x900. Personal preference I suppose.

Nice build, sweet as a nut.

ck3 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Same core parts as a buddy of mine, he plays most everything maxed out 50 to 60 fps. Enjoy your beast. That CPU will do you wonders.

lt-smith 2 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

smashing build kiddo, i'm jelly that you got a 670 for $200

brelovix 1 point 16 months ago

'BudLightHereWeGo' if that isn't meant to be a joke, I feel bad for you. Alright build though, you got the parts for cheap.

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

Don't Worry it is.

brelovix 0 points 16 months ago

Alright good lol.

mubtasem 1 point 16 months ago

im 14 got same case and cpu i use gigabyte 770 and samsung evo 120 ssd whats with that deal on that gpu insane

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Black Friday deals at Newegg, also go $80 off the mobo.

fyaglidere 1 point 16 months ago

Where'd you get the Hook for the headphones, i was looking for one too but the're all to curvy not flat like yours.

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

It came attached to the case.

thunderdan602 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Excellent little console killer.

a_slow_descent 1 point 16 months ago

i really like this build. good job.

TheAndroid 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Great prices, you could tuck some of the wires back behind your MOBO a little more so it looks nicer. Overall, great build!

aowassup 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

You may want to fix them cables. :D

RelapseLife 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Pretty good build man

KryptoKam 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Go Bucks!

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 2 points 16 months ago

Yep, all the way

XDestroyer 1 point 16 months ago

Some interesting prices lol.

tntonini 1 point 16 months ago

I dont know if i would have gone with only a 32gb ssd. Windows is going to fill up at least half of that if not more. and any other apps or games that you want to put on there will fill it up quickly. when it gets full it wont run as fast. for like 60$ more on sale you could have gotten a 120gb samsung ssd. But other than that its a nice first time build.

mrexmr 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Most of your specifications are the same as mine, except that I've got an AMD FX-8350 8-core processor, and of course, an AMD mobo!

CourageousFish 1 point 13 months ago

How much did Windows fill up on that SSD? Do you recommend it to put windows on it and use another standard Drive for Media/Games and what not? I am a nub.

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Windows filled a good amount I have only 2 gigs left on it you should really get a 64 gb

djperkoff 1 point 10 months ago

i'm 13 years old, and about to do my first build for very close the price of this. can someone look at my parts list to make sure im doing everything correctly/i wont have problems?

funnyfoot1 1 point 4 months ago

How is that wireless network adapter working for you? I wanted that same one and wanted to know if i works well :)

fsma92 2 Builds 0 points 16 months ago

45$ for a 32 gb SSD? damn bro I've been kingston ssdnow 300's for 70$ of 120 gb

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

I bought it around 3 months ago, I hadn't ordered all the parts at the same time.

YodelingTerror 0 points 16 months ago

Dat name tho

Certifytoderp 0 points 16 months ago

Hey by any chance are you running at stock setting for all your parts cause i really like you build but i dont get why you choose to use stock fan for cpu instead getting a cheap coolermaster cpu fan cooler or even the Corsair H100i, and why not go GTX 760 instead or 670 price difference shouldnt be that huge

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

I dont have money for a cooler, also, the 670 is better then the 760 for gaming and I got it 50 dollars cheaper

Certifytoderp 1 point 16 months ago

haha i was just wondering i really enjoy the price of the build considering the fact im trying to go for a budget build myself.

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Nice!, I do recommend the 670 if you see it for $200

Certifytoderp 1 point 16 months ago

I was looking at a several other build and i was think about the r9 270x because i thought amd might go nice with a radeon gpu and still being able to run a budget build

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Do what fits you best, but price to performance is always the wsy to go

PolishXlion 2 Builds -1 points 16 months ago

It seems you have a very powerful processor but a waek-ish GPU. Could be better but not bad. Why did you get a 32gb SSD? Sale or free? Otherwise nice build.

XDestroyer 2 points 16 months ago

It's an $800 dollar build dude not a super high end 2k+ build. The 670 beats the 760 which is a great mid range card.

BudLightHereWeGo submitter 1 Build 1 point 16 months ago

Just wanted a faster boot time
