Description

First thing is first, I spent about 6.30 hours on the build as it is my first build, This build is mainly for Proper gaming and Video editing, It should also be capable of helping me finish my day to day tasks. The first problem I encountered was fitting in my Motherboard, I couldn't find enough standoffs as the case came with only 2, Eventually I figured out that the elevated areas on the case were meant to function as standoffs, then I thought I over tightened the screws, Then I installed the CPU with ease and then I left the CPU lid to protect it from dust, I forget to remove it and struggled with inserting the CPU fan. It took me a minute to realize that I left my lid on, It had thermal paste on it. I got it sorted and I thought I put too much pressure on the motherboard while doing so, so I tried not applying much force for installing the other components.Another problem I encountered was the fan leds, the set came with a cable labelled "fan led's" which were meant to be connected to Fan controllers which I don't have. So I had the remove and reroute the fan, I think I did a good job on cable management.. I didn't want to bend the cables too much as I was scared of it breaking/getting damaged.

I had to insert the Memory several times to hear the "snap". I loved the glossy sticker the case came with. It gives a professional finish to the case. I selected the bitfenix fans with green leds to give it a Green theme overall, I am planing on adding more fans that contain LED to make the lighting stronger,

I havn't encountered any technically difficulties until now, However I only started up the PC.. I got the Flash screen and it said insert driver with the operating system. I don't have a keyboard on me so I am going to leave it as it is now.

I will update the 3D mark 11 benchmarks and the Different temperatures.

I still have to get a monitor ( A smaller one ) and a keyboard

D-D-D-D-DROP THE CASE

Anyway, nice build, should run all of the latest games at decent settings, and at a great price!

You used half of your budget on your monitor/TV, i hope it's good for that amount of money

This is a great budget computer. I would have tried to save on 1600mhz memory and the fans so that I could buy a 7790 or 7850 though. You don't really need great cooling with a lower end graphics card and an i3.

The Fans where a last minute choice, I wanted the case to have leds so I went with a fan that had leds, I figured the case was from Bitfenix so why not get the fans from them as well,

About the Memory, I found memory at 1333mhz for about the same price just a few bucks off. I believe that the GPU can run every game out there at a medium - high setting

I have 2 questions, Is it possible to install windows without a keyboard ? and I would like some guidance/advice on overclocking my GPU a bit without damaging it's warranty.

You can't install windows without a keyboard, easily. It's best to have a keyboard and mouse connected during install because it asks you to type in things like your username.

For overclocking, use the overclocking utility in the control center for your graphics drivers. It will only give you values that you can overclock to safely. Just slide the core speed and memory speed slider bars and apply settings. That's the easiest and safest way to overclock.

Nice budget gaming build, but I would have went with the FX 6300. You would have lost 2-5% in gaming, but gained quite a bit of performance in other multi-threaded tasks like video editing.

How good is this build for gaming only? Would it play games such as: Ghosts, BF3 (possibly BF4), GTA IV, Saints Row IV, Guilds Wars 2 on high settings? if not, what settings? and what FPS. Thanks and congrats on the build!

I have finnished Ghosts, BF4, GTA IV and Saints Row IV on high settings They games look spectacular and frames wise You would be looking at a 25-35 range

with that kind of ram you could have used a a10-6800 and a 7750

My first PC was running on Intel then I got my laptop which ran on AMD, So I wanted to see what Intel had to provide since I havn't used it in a while. Besides as far as I know Intel is a better CPU for gaming.

AMD or Intel at the end of the day. I just need a cpu.
