I completely respect building a PC like this. Doing it one piece at a time is quite reasonable. +1

aowassup submitter 1 Build 2 points 17 months ago

Wow there's so much potential with this build. Will you upgrade the CPU or GPU next?

aowassup submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Will be upgrading my CPU next, to a 8350 or a 8320 :)

Cougar makes some really nice quality stuff. Glad to see you used a cougar psu, they really are an understated company especially for their cases. Nice build!

Pigatator 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

but that psu is only 550w and has 2 12v rails not the best
