Description

First build. Still trying to decide on a nice ~$!50 gpu, and or getting one on EBAY. I have not decided yet. Any comments or ideas will help. I am using Ubuntu as my OS as well its free and I can multi load windows if I feel like it, and still have a secure system. Decided on the SSD well because who wouldnt buy a $90+ ssd for $50 on sale??? So far been running smooth and very quite. I am pleased with the performance so far and have not needed to OC as I cant do any real gaming until I get GPU. ....UPDATE just won a lightly used 2month old R270 from ebay for $80+ship wish was the 270x, but for that price not gonna complain to much. Also have Bluetooth usb dongle ($7) and WiFi usb (Rosewill RNX N150HG $12.00) as well. Also ordering LG Blu Ray x16write interior drive as well (54.95)... Build is super quite, and really most the time I wouldn't be able to tell it was on if it wasn't for my blue led fan on lol.

I got the gtx 750 ti on my anniversary build and Its a beast it plays everything I throw at it, its overkill for league of legends and can play Skyrim on maxed graphics. The price/performance of the gtx 750 ti is too good, try to find one at 110$. Either that or get the gtx 960 when it comes out, its coming out soon and its supposed to be a value card around 220-260$ it will be overkill for a lot of games though.

nice build man. Once you do get a GPu, OCing your CPU from what ive been told is amazing with the g3258

I have been eyeing that particular card for a bit. I think I am leaning close to that card, but not to sure about buying one on Ebay lol im sure most of those cards are tired of mining those bitcoins. If anyone has experiance buying a GPU off ebay plz leave comments! =D

Does your RAM preform at 1866 MHz even though the motherboard says that it caps at 1600?

it performs at the 1366 which is currently what the G3258 can handle...Once i upgrade cpu though it should be able to run at higher ram settings

That's unfortunate but the upgrade potential is great for this build. I started out with something similar and I upgraded parts for 5 years. Im not sure if you have scouted a GPU yet but you may be able to snag a GTX 460 for around $50 on Ebay.

Thanks! You really dont notice speed difference from the ram on most tasks, so its fine. I actually just won a R 270 for $80. I wish it was the 270x But for $80 and only supposedly been used for light gaming for less than 2 months im not gonna complain =). I'll get a better one later but for most the games I will play for now its gonna do a darn good job. I was thinking here in a couple months go ahead and getting the i5 4690k.
