How has your build Held up? I'm looking to buy something like this from craiglist.

lookahat submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

I sold it a couple months after I built it, but I know the person who bought it and he still uses it and it cranks on any game he throws at it. So it held up rather well

the 6950 is very good, but why not a 7850?

MrCanadianAviator 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

I am guessing it is because it was cheaper. Since he is a student the cheaper the better.

lookahat submitter 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Yes, it was cheaper, got it on sale+ mail in rebates, and some games came with it

Why the 700W PSU? Looks very nice otherwise.

lookahat submitter 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

It was cheap, and modular

Scorpini 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

Holy **** that is cheap, the problem is that it is OCZ.

SrgtMacfly 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

very nice for the price you paid, but is the SSD the only storage you have in it?

lookahat submitter 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

I had some spare drives lying around to use as dump drives.

I'm new to building computers. Anyone know if this is a decent build? http://pcpartpicker.com/b/xFt

It is a nice build, although that power supply isnt one of the better ones. When it comes to a power supply you want to get the most reliable brand, for me its Corsair (probly the best out there). You dont want to get a poor psu cause a failure starting at the power supply will affect the whole computer, I would look at the Corsair TX650 V2 if it were up to me. Although it isnt modular, the case you have can easely take care of the extra cables

Ok thanks. I changed it to what you said. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/xFt

You may want more storage.
