I decided to build a computer a couple months ago which could run new games on a maxed out setting. After using a $350 laptop for the last 3-4 years, it was time for a change. I was on a moderately tight budget so the parts which where picked were picked with that thought in mind.
CPU- Very happy with this chip. In my opinion, I find that the Amd fx-series vishera cpu's are underrated. It was a good choice as it was relatively cheap and performs well. I have not overclocked yet but am planning to in the future.
Motherboard- Pretty plan, but gets the job done. Love the bios and how it's laid out.
GPU- Very impressed with this graphics card. It is highly recommended by many for this price range and for a good reason.
Case- If there would be one thing to change in this build, it would be the case. It didn't offer what I thought it could in terms of cable management. Other then that small complaint, everything else was awesome with this case and I love the look of it.
Overall, with this being the first computer that I have build, I am very happy with the result. It can run every game I am currently playing (Skyrim, TF2, Diablo 3, Chivalry) with a high frame rate and no slowdowns or complications. I recommend all of these parts for someone who is looking to build a computer with a budget.
