Description

Let my start off by saying that I reused my Hard Drive and CD Drive. I picked this build because of the good prices and good parts for the price.

The computer is some what loud but IM SURE that if you got better fans you would be golden.

The graphics card is a beast for the price. And its really quite.

This PC not only looks classy but it performs just as well.

Photoshop runs smoothly.

I can play Minecraft at HIGH settings and get 80+ FPS

The one thing I might get is a SSD and a side panel with a window.

No OVERClocks at the moment, will do in future.

Planning to get a New CPU Cooler because the stock one ramps up the speed a ton when playing games!

I just played battlefield 3 campaign with all Ultra Setting's with everything max and was adverging somewhere between 50FPS and 8FPS!

With the graphics card you have, you should be able to do much more than run Minecraft smoothly. Also, MC relies more on your CPU than the graphics card I believe.

No, you really are mistaken. I'm not trying to be rude or anything but it's a terribly optimized game.

Minecraft is based on Java, therefore, it is CPU intensive. Minimal GPU power is required.

Minecraft is a very CPU intensive game, not so much about the GPU. I think you have your information backwards.

if you have shaders it becomes more gnu intensive!

hey man thats a nice build. how is that 760 treating you? what do you get in battlefield and all that? and did you have to do a bios update on that mobo for the cpu? or was it just plug and go?

I updated the 760's drivers, and I installed the disk for the MOAB but they did not want to install. Minecraft runs at 60-50 FPS MAX Settings but if I install shaders mod is does not want to run at like med settings at more then 30 to 20. No overclocks yet but I think if I put more ram at Minecraft it might run smoother with the mod. When its open with the mod the CPU does not pass 30% usage.

That PSU was a great find at that cost. The wattage would be better utilized with a Crossfire config but regardless, solid budget build. Look into a decent cooler, wouldn't run you more than $50. +1

At least with that PSU, he can drop a 9590 in and have zero hiccups (as long as that board can support it)

Awesome budget build. A tad overkill on the PSU, but that just means you have room to upgrade later on.

My first upgrade would be a SSD. Even a 64GB to hold the OS will cut your boot times in half, and provide an overall silky-smooth experience when running the OS. It's so nice to have the OS boot up, and be able to use the computer the second the desktop is available, instead of waiting a minute for background apps to load due to the limitations of mechanical HDDs.

Good job man. +1

Thanks. I got the PSU for like $50 so it was basically a steal, and it was Semi-Modular. Thanks for the Input. The next 2 things I'm getting are a New CPU cooler and a SSD. Thanks!

It should be noted that you got the PSU for 50 bucks, and not the listed price. If you got something for uber-$(*ing cheap, it should be noted, and prices should be changed to reflect that.

We want to see the deals :P

Great build. How are you liking the 200R case? You'll want to replace your stock cooler with an aftermarket cooler when you overclock. I think either your video card or stock cooler is making your computer loud. Maybe both are contributing to the noise.

It's the stock cooler. AMD stock cooler do a good job at keeping it cool, but it revs up pretty good under load (3000+ RPM). An aftermarket cooler will silence that. nVidia cards run fairly quiet, more-so with the Windforce cooler (that is a boss of an OEM cooler).

The case is really nice! I wish there was a little Side panel with a window and I also wish there was rubber grommets around the cable management inputs.
