Description

Budget build using some spare hard drives that I had lying around. It was fun assembling. My brother's computer broke down about 3 weeks ago so I took it upon myself to build him a new one as I am back for Spring break. Everything went accordingly during the build and it was a relatively fast build at that. It will mostly be used for gaming and homework.

Nice build. However, I must ask why you got the 660. At the same price you can most likely get a 270 or a 270x, which has better performance.

I believe the 270x is a little pricier and runs a little hotter but that would have been a sound alternative.

Actually the MSI R9 270 is 184.99. Could have gotten that but great build nonetheless!

Nice budget build, I understand why you went with the GTX 660, on sale the R9 270/270x are $230 now. good overall parts great MOBO for the 6300 probably the best you can get. +1

I like this build, verry goood! My only thing is that you could've saved some money on the PSU if you waited for it to be on sale.

Haha I totally would have, but I am only back for the week and we had to get all the parts asap.

I do like booty. And especially sharks.

Mmmhmmm....sharks.

Those cables could've been done a lot nicer, next time try making better use of the back side of the case and the cable routing cutouts.

Nice build, a pair of ripjaws would have helped with the name :D

I know that this is a quite old build, but I'm getting almost exactly same as yours.

Question: I'm assuming this is a gaming rig, why not go with th fx-6350?

The fx-6350 performs insignificantly faster. I didn't think that it would be worth the extra 30 dollars.

all it is is an overclocked fx-6300
