So as a part school project, mostly for gaming, first time build I decided to make an AMD based computer! I wanted to make it very expandable for the future as well as being okish in the short run. I don't really care about gaming quality as long as it's around 35fps and I've been a little surprised. I have played Planetside 2 quite a lot and I never see my fps go under 35 in major battles at medium-high graphics. I'm running Win 8 mostly because it was the cheapest option at the time at $70, and my final price was $600 on the dot. I swear to god that I'll fix the cable management, but to be honest I'm a little scared. Some issues I had were just driver software stuff and some fan adjustment.
I love this thing, it's one of the most accomplishing things I've done in my 16 years so far and I can't wait to expand it more. Any feedback (as long as it's put nicely) is appreciated!
