Description

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 3 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

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

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!

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!

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.

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

ownerbeast 1 point 15 months ago

you should get more ram

Lordelron 1 point 15 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 16 months ago

What are some high end amd proccessors?

xx116xx 3 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

The 9xxx series, for example.
