Helped a friend build his new computer. He is upgrading from what looked like an old library desktop. He is extremely good at the games he does play, so I am hoping that this build can take him even further. Hopefully, he feels a difference considering his old computer had 70 gb of HDD.

Justification for Purchases:

CPU- It was cheap

CPU Cooler- I know he can't overclock. I know he doesn't need water cooling. I like how quiet closed loop cooling is compared to the stock heatsink and he likes how it looks. It is never a bad thing having your CPU running a little cooler.

Motherboard- I have worked with this MOBO before. It is extremely nice to work with and has nice anesthetics aesthetics.

GPU- Super cheap.

Case- He liked this one.

PSU-Semi Modular with very nice cable housing. Extra horsepower in case he wanted to buy another 280 and Xfire.

has nice anesthetics

So the motherboard causes a temporary loss of sensation? :p

All jokes aside, this is a very nice build. :)

Damn. I guess I can't correct it now. Oh well.

You can if you click EDIT next to your build, just above the Details box. :)

I know, but if I did that your comment would lose its context! It's coose coose.

Is that the rare "can't be tamed" pink and red monkey town?

Solid build, very clean look too. Well done!

What do you think about the GPU, good performance, good temperature, is it to noisy? I am thinking about getting it or a GTX 760 while I wait for Maxwell.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qim-asQrT_Y the 280 is better than the 760 for less money, so it's kinda a no-brainer.

It's a 280 not a 280x btw. R9 280 cost about $200
