My goal on this build was to build a PC under 500$ for light gaming. I wanted to move the computer around between my parents houses, but eventually I settled on one house and built my desk setup. After a couple months of playing easy games with a Phenom 2 50$ processor, I bought a bigger game and noticed visible frame drops. I didn't have money for a long time, but at the beginning of 2017 I committed to buying a heavy duty FX processor. Here's why; when I first started I didn't think I would be gaming that much and then I got my friend interested and we got an influx of cash, he started buying me video games that my system couldn't run. So I saved up and bought the FX 8350, overkill, an SSD, and a bunch of desk accessories. Right now my system doesn't match with my 200$ processor and 120$ graphics card although I am getting ready for a RX 480. (Completely AMD). One problem I found with my original buy was that my motherboard does not have more than one fan connecter. You have to pick up a splitter. Overall I'm really happy that I'm starting to spend big bucks. Processor handles really well.
