This will be my first post to this site. I built my first computer about 4 years ago and it has since become slightly out-dated. (i5 3570 : GTX 550 1GB : z68 Intel Chipset MOBO) I had some extra money come my way so I decided to shoot for a budget AMD build that could satisfy my mild gaming needs.
-CPU- AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core -- I currently have this proc running at stock clock speed, 3.5GHz. My plan is to eventually OC but I haven't had a need to as of yet. This proc has powered through everything I have thrown at it
-CPU Cooler- Corsair H60 -- This cooler keeps the FX-6300 running extra cool. I usually idle at room temp and never climbs above 35 degrees Celsius under load.
-MOBO- Gigabyte GA-990-FXA-UD3 -- Full feature MOBO with a decent price tag. No complaints here.
-Memory- Kingston HyperX Fury White - 8GB
-Storage- Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB -- Pretty standard SSD that doesn't break the bank. I currently only have this one drive. I plan to add a 1TB HDD soon.
-GPU- EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB -- I have always been faithful to EVGA when it comes to GPUs. This little card runs great. While it would be nice to run games in 4K, I am satisfied with running 40-60FPS at 1080p for most games. I have been running The Division on Medium settings and staying in the 30-40FPS range. Works for me.
-Case- Corsair 100R ATX Mid Tower -- I love this case. Fairly compact and very reasonably priced. Corsair4Lyfe
-PSU- Corsair CX 600W - Paid 60$ -- I initially wanted a full modular PSU but this semi-modular unit fit my needs.
-OS- MS Windows 10 Pro -- A friend of mine works for an IT shop so I got a free license :)
