Description

Let my start off by saying this was my first build. I know cable management isn't the greatest but again considering this is my first build I tried. Also I know someone might say if your gonna spend that much on a computer why not get intel? Well idk I have just always been a fan of AMD so there ya go. Ok so I started out with around a budget of 1000$ but as time went on and I saved more money I got better more expensive parts and this is where I ended up. I'm very happy with the corsair h80i after running prime95 for 20 min the temperatures never exceeded 37 degrees Celsius.

Please let me know what you think. Criticism is welcome just remember its my first build:)

this is pretty unbalance. i dont think you should ever pay more for your case than the gpu

Why did you choose a non-AMD GPU then?

It's just a temporary GPU. I wanted to get the radeon 7870xt and I waited and waited an I couldn't find it anywhere so I went with this card because I didn't wanna have to wait any longer...

Cool. I had heard the 7870xt is nearly impossible to find in stock.

You could've got a cheaper cooler and smaller ssd, caviar blue would've been fine too, with that money = better gpu.

I think that in most instances, you need at least a 120gb ssd for a boot drive. Games these days really take up a lot of space and it's a pain to install and uninstall games. The whole point of getting an ssd is for faster boot and game/program load times, so that would be tough with a 64gb one.

I think you could've went much better for 1.7K including the accessories/pheriphals

Great components. This build seems like it would be pretty powerful. I would have gone with an intel i5/z77 setup if you plan on crossfiring/SLI because PCIE 3.0 will definitely help vs PCIE 2.0 if you have two cards. I'm only assuming you want two video cards because you bought an 850W PSU, but I could be wrong. If you are only going to have one card, this build should last you a very long time, especially since you got a strong power supply and a great case.

Thanks and yeah I think in a few months I'm going to purchase something like a radeon 7970 and then crossfire it down the road a bit.

Because i liked the case also I will be able to keep the case for a good amount of time

You could've used a smaller version of the case, like the phantom 410.
