I built this a few months ago but I just got around to actually putting it up here. Everything was bought at a nearby Fry's. The prices listed are to the best of my memory since I have already thrown away the receipts.

Why did you spend that much on a mobo with that CPU?

FrostelFox [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 9 months ago

That was the only motherboard with USB3 headers that they had available.

xx116xx [3 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Ahhh, ok. I guess that's reasonable. You many want to upgrade to a 6300 or 8320/8350 in the future. That 430w may need to be upgraded as well, along with the RAM. This should be good for a while, but I think it's worth putting some more money into.

The motherboard is an excellent option for someone with upgradeability in mind, Want to add a GPU for crossfire? Go ahead, Want a new CPU? Go ahead!

xx116xx [3 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah. I kind of wish that I had gotten it instead of my M5A97 R2.0, but I got $50 off that so it was kind of worth it :P

Overpaid on the mobo and HDD, but you have a nice cheap build

Cable management could use a little tidying!

Newbie98 1 point 9 months ago

I hope you do not plan to use this as a gaming pc man, but parts look balanced. I would have went with a fx 6300 or 6350 but that is just my opinion.

Your build is similar to mine about a month ago. I had the MSI version of the 7770 and it wasn't that bad.

The build looks good and glean, especially with the white case, love it.

Harpzeecord 1 point 9 months ago

Literally my brothers computer lol. Good build especially for upgrading!

ownerbeast 1 point 9 months ago

you should get more ram

Lordelron 1 point 8 months ago

The 9590 requires you to have one of a select few mobos

Exactly what I thought.

...aaaaaaaaaaaand the downvotes xD

Perhaps I should explain my earlier comment.

Intel's budget processors are ****.

Intel's mid end processors are beastly.

Intel's high end processors are unparalleled.

AMD's budget processors are decent.

AMD's mid end processors are decent.

AMD's high end processors are beastly.

The difference is that AMD costs anywhere from $50 to $100 less than Intel.

Therefore, if you want a budget processor, AMD is the way to go.

Perfectly said. Hope everyone who is thinking about building a computer sees this advice.

RyanGrant 1 point 9 months ago

What are some high end amd proccessors?

xx116xx [3 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

The 9xxx series, for example.

Fx-9590 is a work of art

Electrospeed 1 point 9 months ago

A work of art with a higher TDP than mainstream graphics cards .-.


But yeah, the 9590 is a fast CPU.

Alternatively, the 8350 can be pretty fast too.

Pbandjelly4 1 point 9 months ago

haha still i would love to have a 9590

Pbandjelly4 1 point 9 months ago

haha but its not that big of deal to get a bigger PSU. but yea it does take a lot of power :/
