Description

My first time being able to afford a nice gaming computer but still wanted to stay on a budget. I bought all parts at microcenter/fry's electronics. Mainly plan on playing BF4 and titanfall when it comes out. Please leave comments and let me know what you think!

You're going to need a larger hdd for games, and put the gpu in the top slot. But otherwise nice build.

Why should he put the GPU on the top slot? Could he just configure in his BIOS?

no point in having it so close to the PSU + often the top slots are better on most boards.

Ok thanks.

That's because, from the way I understand it, almost all newer boards reserve the top PCI-e slot as an x16 slot and the other slots are x8. The x16 slot is the fastest PCI-e slot because of the larger bandwidth.

Agree with this guy, you're not taking advantage of your case's cable management holes.

You got a i5+760 for $730. awesome buy. If possible. remove the middle HDD tray to help teh air flow from front fan.

Why didn't you get the i5-4570k? You're wasting money on the MoBo

Maybe he's going to upgrade to an unlocked broad well processor when they are released

A super cheap build, but effective...

I would remove those HDD bays right off the bad, it will help in the cooling of your case.

Get a 2 TB HDD and use that for games and use the SSD for booting up

This is similar to the build I recently completed, except I went with a higher end mobo, 4670, more RAM, and also added a 1 TB HDD. Yours is less expensive though, and probably games pretty decently compared to mine.

The only suggestions I have are these (which have already been stated):

  1. You're going to need a bigger SSD or added HDD.

  2. I have the HAF 912, with more cables, and know you can do more with cable management in that case than what is shown in the photo.

Why would u get only a 128 gb ssd when you can get a western digital caviar blue for 20 dollars cheaper. 128 gb will not be enough for games, OS, and files that u are going to have. Otherwise nice build

Just a few clarifications. I was super rushed when putting this thing together so I plan on spending some time on cable management this week when I have more time so things are more tidy. I went with a 750 watt PSU and the mobo so I could SLI in the future without having to worry about anything else but buying another card. Also I plan on either buying another HDD or using an external I already have to add some additional storage but wanted a SSD for a boot drive for the time being. What is everyone's opinion on windows 8 vs 7?? I still need an OS as the one im using is going to require activation soon :-?
