Description

This is my first pc build and won't be my last. At first I thought it was going to be tough but as I researched the parts, what they do and how they do it, I was like, "Woah. This is easy."

Gaming, video/photo editing. Media streaming. Runs everything awesome. Will be upgrading the PSU later this year and adding another gtx 960 ssc and more ram. Maybe getting a bigger case too.

Really nice build. I have no quibble with the video card. For a few bucks more you could have gotten an 8350, but the 8320 is a good CPU. Since you have an SSD, I would have used Windows 8.1 which boots super fast on an SSD. Overall, a really solid rig!

Thank you thank you. I stuck with 8320 because that $20 more wasn't worth it to me just for a little better performance and I hate windows 8. 7 has a pretty snappy boot so I'm happy with it.

do you like your case? im planning to get the same one?

The case is okay. The plastic feels kinda cheap and the window is tinted (which makes no sense cuz you can't see into the case as well). The case can mount 2 120mm front fans but only comes with 1 set (4) screws for 1 fan. Easily fixed with zip ties. I zip tied them in the middle and they're holding solid. The power button and reset button don't light up but that's just minor.
Ventilation is pretty good and the case leans towards positive air pressure with the 2 dust filters on the bottom of the case under the psu and front of the case. there's a good amount of space for cables to run behind the mobo but it can get kinda tight depending on how thick your cables are. Overall, it's a good budget case and looks cool, but if you can afford one a little more expensive, I'd choose something else just because of the "cheap feeling" plastic.

Please do not ******* get sli 960s. It is ******* trash... A single 970 would be much greater and cheaper.

970 is over $100 more and the nvidia gtx 960ssc is pretty awesome if you haven't run it before

It doesn't really perform much better as far as i have seen atleast at 1080p. If you have some benchmarks you can link to back up your statement that would be cool. I know an r9 280x would be faster but the 960 isnt a bad card at all. Will run pretty much anythying on high/ultra and is very power efficient.

The R9 280 cannot utilize CUDA acceleration in within the Adobe Suite. Since this build was editing AS WELL AS gamin, then the 960 is a better choice.
