Description

Hi I've been using a laptop for past 5 years and it was time to upgrade, So i decided to go with an AMD build because they've never failed on me and worked pretty well (also cheap). CPU: I chose the fx-8320 over the 8350 because i was planning on overclocking anyways so i saved couple of bucks there. So far it's been working great i can multitask like crazy without lagging xD. Cooler: I chose the Noctua NH-D14 because i wanted to use air cool rather than water, also got on sale so woop woop :D. MOBO: This baby is awesome looks great does the job, no complaints here. Memory: I got these on sale and they do their job so pretty happy about that. In future i might upgrade to 16GB RAM. Storage: The SSD is beautiful works hella fast, and for my storage the barracuda works great. GPU: I managed to get one right before the prices on these sky rocketed and i also got lucky that mine didn't turn out to be defective or anything. Case: The case looks nice'n'all but for cable management its horrible :/ or maybe its just me. I might change my case later on in the future. Power Supply: Got this bad boy on sale for $100 its fully modular but as you can see my pictures i need a major cable managment. Monitor: Also got this guy on sale for $100 it works great for a hundred dollar monitor.

Love the choice of 8320 plus excellent cooler. Great build. How high were you able to overclock the 8320?

+1 Nice build! Some cable management might be in order though...

Really good! I have an 8320 and the 990FXA-UD3. They're great! Out of interest, what revision motherboard did you get?

I don't personally like the fan, lol. Everything else is good though... except the power supply, unless you're gonna crossfire, there's no reason to have 850 watts.

always good to plan ahead. Dual 280X sounds like 4k panel material :D Also, that cooler gives you loads of potential to overclock, and a decent board to boot too. You can easily hit 4Ghz/core, 3.8Ghz/8cores.

If I may necro, yeah, Noctua makes some pretty hideous stuff. Was the person picking the colors colorblind? But they make excellent products if you don't mind the aesthetics!

Nice build. I would have gone with a GTX 770 though. It's a little bit faster, and quite a bit cheaper. Your cables could also use a little work.

A GTX 770 for quite a bit cheaper than £250, tell me more ;)

I don't know what the price is where you are, but in the US this card is $329.99, £239.42.
